Quality Pop Arrangements
Date: December 5, 2013
My name is Brooke and I am in my second year of teaching middle school choir. The school is in an urban community that has a fairly large population. My eighth grade choir is a very talented group that consists of 11 boys and around 30 girls who are really enthusiastic about singing.
Many of my students have taken an interest in groups such as Penatonix, the movie Pitch Perfect, and even the show The Sing-Off. Almost every class we have together I have a student come up and ask me if I have seen the new Penatonix video on youtube. Seeing that they have such an interest in this kind of music, I would love to surprise them at the beginning of next semester by giving them an upbeat accapella Pop song. Although there are many arrangements of Pop songs, I am searching for high quality arrangements that can educate my eighth grade students and will allow me to challenge them with rhythm and harmony. Their enthusiasm for accapella music is so great that I have to take advantage of this opportunity.
All in all, I would really like some help finding a pop song for eighth graders that is upbeat, in 3 part, accapella, and of good quality. All of your responses are greatly appreciated!
