Because many lyrics are inappropriate for children, I have composed three original songs, one for each grade that I teach. 3rd graders are singing “Recorder Blues,” 4th graders are singing “Ukulele Blues” and 5th graders are singing “Lonely Blues.” They are also playing ukulele over the chord changes and taking solos as they improvise. Some classes have written their own lyrics. Such creativity is important for everyone, because it keeps us open to new ideas. Change is the only constant of our era, so creativity is a must!
