**THIS WAS MY CLASSES FAVORITE VIDEO THIS YEAR!! They asked to watch it multiple times...) This group is amazing. I love using these videos as video prompts in music class. The students watch the video and then respond with how they felt, what they liked about it, etc. Then several students share with the class. It is compelling to see what students think about "classical" music (in many cases) that has been "modernized". O Fortuna - ThePianoGuys
