In the last ten years, a cappella’s popularity has skyrocketed with younger generations. Not only are they listening to it – high school and middle school a cappella groups are bringing together some of the nation’s best budding talent to sing in harmony. Now a teacher named Lisa Marien is bringing her skills to the next generation in at Nathan Hale Arts Magnet School in New London, CT.
Lisa didn’t start as an expert in teaching a cappella – she started as someone with a love for vocal music and a desire to bring it to her students. With 30 years of teaching experience under her belt, she found the tools she needed through working with a cappella experts and organizations like the A Cappella Education Association. Now in her second year of teaching a cappella, she’s found a way to engage her students in an incredibly rewarding musical experience.
On Friday, January 19, at 7 pm Eastern Time, we’ll be going live on the A Cappella Education Association Facebook page with Lisa Marien, talking all about elementary school a cappella. You don’t want to miss this – go like our Facebook page now to watch the livestream on Friday!
