My Musical Heritage Project
A Quest to Discover My Family's Musical Experiences
The Musical Quest
Remember those scratched CD’s, cassette tapes that we re-wound with a pencil, 8 tracks that belonged to our parents, record players, boom boxes, putting coins in the juke boxes at Pizza Hut, concerts, MJ performing at the Super Bowl, hearing your mom or dad talk about the music they listened to before “rock” music came along? Such memories mean very little to our third and fourth graders, so..... we're going on a quest to discover our musical heritage. What were the musical experiences of our parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles?
Did you attend concerts? Buy albums? What were your musical listening experiences as a child / teen?
Can You Play?
Did you sing or play in a band? Can you still play today?
Did you take lessons on an instrument? Was it fun? Did you practice? How did you learn to read music?
