Requiem for Inactive Verbs PDF
If your school would like to improve its writing scores, then this is the piece for you! Teach your students this famous lyric by noted author Jane Kiester (www.maupinhouse.com/kiester.php) and watch the results. Of course you can also have Mrs. Kiester come do a workshop for your teachers, and she will recommend that you add this piece to your standard concert band repertoire because it works. At OCSA we actually had a funeral for these verbs, and each of the verbs came through processional to this tune. This piece is fun and appropriate curricular use of utilitarian music under the Sunshine State Standards.
