Get Your Mojo Workin': Part 1 Writing Your Very Own Blues Tune!

Upper graders listen to the blues. They discuss blues scale, read a description of the blues, and work together to write an original piece. A lesson like this ties into American history and African-American musical contributions very well. It also promotes self-expression and creative problem solving.
