I have never heard the song "Grand Old Flag" but I love it. I cannot believe how loud you can sing, I think you sing louder than my 27 students of 4th and 5th graders. Way to go.

Hi! My name is Allie, and I am a student the University of South Alabama and in Dr. Strange's EDM310 course.

This was absolutely wonderful! You guys sounded great, and I can't get over how clear you were; I could make out every single word!

I've heard "Grand Old Flag" a number of times (I remember singing it when I was in 3rd grade), but I had never heard "Boo" before this.

I loved you're enthusiasm as well! :)

I showed these videos to the music teacher at the school that I work out, and she had nothing to say but good things.

Keep up the good work, and I'm looking forward to more videos!

Hey kids!! That was absolutely AMAZING!! You all did a wonderful job!! I remember when I was in elementary school and we would sing "You're A Grand Ole Flag" every morning with our principal. It was such a special time and now you have brought back great memories to me today!!

I LOVED the song "Boo!!" Everyone had such enthusiasm as they sang each song!! WONDERFUL JOB!!! Keep up the good work! I'll be looking for more videos in the future!

First of all, the children sang beautifully. "Grand Ole Flag" was loud and clear. I had never heard "Boo" before now. I even jumped a little bit at the end of the song!

Keep up the good work!

Great Job! I loved the singing. All your feet were swinging and moving, I think you guys could have got up and marched a parade with "Grand Ole Flag".

What a great job on both songs! The students had fantastic volume and clarity. This brought back memories of when I sang "Grand Old Flag" in the third grade. It was my grandmother's favorite, and she would ask me to sing it to her all the time.

Thanks for sharing your talent with us!

I think it is great to see such an enthusiastic bunch of youngsters. I know that sometimes school bogs students down with too many facts and whatnot. I also know that I love it when my younger siblings come home excited to show what they know. I bet your students' families are grateful for their songbirds, too.

Christina Sobolewski said...

You guys did such a good job singing! I love excitement and enthusiasm singing both of the songs. You guys and girls are loud and proud when you are singing "A Grand Old Flag!" That is fantastic.

Keeping doing a great job!

My name is Jessica and I am a student in Dr. Strange's EDM310 class at the University of South Alabama. You guys were AWESOME! I love how enthusiastic you were. This is by far one of the best performances I've seen of the "Grand Old Flag". It's great that you guys know that song and seem happy to be singing it. Being an American is definitely something to be proud of. I had never heard "Boo" before but I lied it and y'all sounded great! I look forward to hearing more!

Amanda Bosarge's EDM 310 Class Blog said...

I enjoyed listening to your third graders sing these songs! Great job getting them involved excited about singing. Seems like it would be fun to teach that class! One question: Did you teach them to swing their legs or do they do that automatically? I guess that is how they keep rhythm! :)

RobinGarland said...

AMAZING! I thought they did an awesome job. They stayed in tuned and together. Great Job!

Tara Watson said...
