Sir John A. MacDonald Senior releases Mindful Minutes music CD
Inspired by the book 10 Mindful Minutes by Goldie Hawn, staff at Sir John A. MacDonald Senior Public School have produced and implemented their first in-house CD. The result is a collaboration between music educators at the school and students and offers a way for students to relax and focus as they start the day or after noon nutrition breaks.
CDs are currently available for sale, with all proceeds going to the school's music program.
Production of the CD took place over the course of 4 months in the school's inaugural recording studio. The addition of a midi-lab and recording studio to the school's music program made the possibility of creating and composing a music studio a reality. The CD cover was chosen from a school-wide design contest.
The Sir JAM music program consists of a band and a general music program. The general music program involves students through the different stages of music production, from creating and composing music with classroom instruments, to newer 21st century techniques with the new recording studio.
Sir John A. Maconald produces a winter and spring musical yearly which involves students from both the general music and band program. The shows draw on a variety of arts including drama, dance, visual arts, instrumental and vocal music.
