Shakespeare and Music

Have some kids in class that are musically inclined?  Give them a great challeshakespeare-musicnge, have them create a Shakespeare song.  Perhaps this is to one of their favorite characters (ohh, what would a Puck song sound like… I’m thinking Nirvana…) or their favorite play (I can hear a nice Halloween melody running for Titus…) or anything associated with The Bard at all.

I was inspired for this by watching the following YouTube vid on a song created and inspired by Richard II:

Pretty cool, huh?  Thanks to the @BookshopBand for bringing this to my attention.

I worked with a teacher once that did a bunch of music for Midsummer for Kids, you can read about that here.

Remember, the point is to get kids engaged with Shakespeare, any way possible.  What a great Shakespeare challenge.  When you have a musical performance ready, please send it my way so I can enjoy and share with others!!!

Have fun and let me know how it goes!
