Too bad they don't generally vaccinate for measles here.
I had my second music history lesson today, in which I covered the Gold Rush and the construction of the railroad. I used songs such as "Oh, Susanna," "I'll Be Working on the Railroad," and "She'll Be Coming 'Round the Mountain" and showed pictures of a banjo and a covered wagon, both of which really caught their interest. I finished by introducing Ragtime music with "The Entertainer."
I won't have another class for three weeks, due to the school festival. My plan is to do examples of jazz, country, and western styles of music in the next class.
