Ethnic Music in Nashville:
A Choral Approach
World Music in Nashville: A Choral Approach was the capstone project for my Master of Education degree at Tennessee State University. It is a 6 week unit on five of the most prominent musical cultures in Nashville, Tennessee: Somali Music, Kurdish Music, Mariachi, Sacred Harp, and Gospel Music (with an emphasis specifically on Spirituals). The unit culminates in the a cappella choral piece "One Language is Never Enough", that aims to teach students about the cultures through a choral interpretation of the cultures that is accessible for middle and high school students.
