“Happy” – Classroom Instruments Cover

In the practicum in general music class that I am teaching, my students and I created a cover of Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” using classroom instruments. This was a project I had my students work on to incorporate popular music into their general music curriculum. While we did not have time to implement it with the K-12 students, the music education majors went through the process of selecting a song, arranging it for classroom instruments, rehearsing, and recording. I recorded and edited the audio and video components. Due to constraints on time and availability of software, the college students were not present for all of the editing process.
