WOW!!! Our new Piano Lab is now open before school.  Please come in and play!

VC - We've just completed "Aura Lee" and most groups are testing on it this week. We talked about "Aura Lee", the folk song, and how Elvis Presley had a big hit with the same melody called, "Love Me Tender".  This relates to one of our standards for the week.

MHSIP.9a:  Understanding music and culture.

Please check out these 2 recordings of "Love Me Tender" and write one or two paragraphs comparing and contrasting these two recordings, including the rendition you just played on piano. You may include other familiar melodies that have stood the test of time and have been revived by a new generation.
