Chad Rice and Aaron Mitchell teach Spanish at Colony High School.  They have had a lot of fun over the years playing guitars and singing in class.  They use music teach basic skills, introduce cultural elements, and memorize declamation poems without being accomplished singers or players.  All of the songs are simple 2 or 3 chords that anyone, with a little practice, could learn.  Guitar playing is not the backbone of their curriculum or presentation style.  It is a tool that they and their students really enjoy.  The goal isn't to give people a song book (which only exists in their heads) or teach people to play the guitar. They hope this presentation can be the motivation someone needs to learn a new skill that can be a fun part of a world language classroom.
