Music Count Us In 2019

The Music Count Us In program advocates music education by promoting and celebrating its value and has been running every year since 2005.

The program culminates in the National Celebration Day when more than half a million students sing the same song, on the same day, at the same time – the annual Program Song. It is a song written by students, for students.

The 2019 Program Song is called ‘We Are’ and will involve over 745,000 students from more than 3,400 schools all around Australia celebrating the value of music education.

Celebration Day is Thursday November 7th.
Our students will be singing the song in the Amphitheatre at 10:45am.

The following links are to assist students with learning the song.

The weeks are flying by! Our Magic Millions rehearsal is in 2 weeks (Week 6).

Please see below for a copy of the letter that was sent home at the end of Term 2 with dates, times and ticket information.

We are in Row 13, so I have also attached a letter that was sent by the PSMF organisers. I will be going through this with the students.

FUTURE MOON MISSION MUSIC

In June 2019, NASA initiated a social media challenge, asking the public to suggest songs for a moon tunes road trip playlist — #NASAMoonTunes, for a planned return to the moon in 2024.

NASA, in tandem with its science educational component Third Rock Radio, set the same time frame for submissions that coincided with the period one month out that Apollo 11 astronauts used to prepare for their trek 50 years ago.

YOUR MISSION:

Research and nominate a song to be included in one of the following playlists:

#ParsonsMoonTunes  #McGowanMoonTunes  #GardnerMoonTunes

Pre-flight checklist:

  • The song must be ‘school’ appropriate… Please consider the lyrics and what the song is about.
  • You may work individually or with a partner.
  • Where/when did you first hear the song? What is the song about? What is your connection to the song?
  • What is it about this song that engages you? Use technical language (Elements of Music)
  • Decide how you can best present your song choice – remember you are trying to persuade your classmates to include your song.
  • Please show respect and empathy to other students regarding their song choices.

Agreed assessment criteria Rubric_-_#moonmusic

After all students have presented, each student will select 3 of the songs and the top 10 will be included in their class playlist.
