I’ve always love patriotic stories and music. I have many ancestors who served in the armed forces. That’s why I’ve written several blog posts about teaching Patriotic music and how it can touch hearts. And why I created a Patriotic Music Class Freebie.
WHY PATRIOTIC MUSIC?
My great, great grandfather served in the Union Army in the Civil Way, my grandfather served in WWI and my father served in the Army during peace time. My service has mainly been my school teaching, church, scouts and motherhood experiences. I’ve never had to pack all my things up in 1 bag and leave my loved ones and go away for an extended period of time and be subject to a higher authority. So I can’t relate personally to that–but there’s something about that kind of self less service that really get’s the tears going for me. I also have a B.A. in History and have always been touched by the sacrifices made for me and for our country to have the great benefits and opportunities that we have today. And there’s tons of movies with good stories and music about America that you can use in music class.
