End of Year Videos - Music Selections



I am helping several teachers put together videos to show at end-of-year award ceremonies. I thought I would share some of my favorite music to use.

- Meghan Trainor "Better When I'm Dancing"
- Ice Age 4 "We are Family"
- Brother Bear "On my Way"
- Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo'ole "Somethere Over the Rainbow"
- Jack Johnson "Upside Down"
- Kids Bob "Make Some Noise"
- Hans Zimmer "You're So Cool" (instrumental and my "go to" for LOTS of video projects)

What we do is upload the final video to YouTube (as an unlisted video...so you have to have the link in order to find it) and then we create a customized URL using TinyURL. The link is then shared with parents via newsletter, email, or text. This is a lot easier then burning CD's for the entire class and then parents can download the video on their own, if they wish, to keep it or share the link with extended family.



I'm curious to read what music other teachers use. Please let me know in the comment section below.
