I heard about this from the frenz.com message board. Love it!! Neil and the boys are such nice guys, and your students are hilarious.

Great job, Mr. B! Your rapport with the students reminds me of my husband's rapport with his (he's a high school physics teacher). Kids remember teachers like you.

Mr. B said...

Thank you so much for your message NLGUY. The "dudes" of Crowded House were great to us and it was an experience we'll all never forget. And as far as the kids always remembering me, I certainly hope so, and it definitely works both ways. Thanks again.

Just wonderful and you got to work with Neil Finn. That was just great. When I was going to school, we NEVER sang cool songs by Crowded House. We sang mainly Black History songs like "We Shall Overcome". These children did great work. God bless you all,

thanks mitzi! i always wished that i could have sung better songs in my chorus days, so definitely that's the goal -- to give the kids music that is excellent and relevant. thanks for the comment! :)
