Here's your AMI Project for the 2018-2019 year. This is the same as the paper copy handed out in class on Thursday, October 18, 2018.

Day One

Make a list of major events, special relationships, or big changes you’ve experienced in your life.

Here are some suggestions:

 

·         Birth/Special birthday

·         School milestones

·         Moving

·         First boyfriend/girlfriend

·         Death of a loved one

·         Special friendship(s)

·         Report card/grades (good or bad)

·         First job

·         Starting a new hobby

·         Musical experiences

·         Special/life changing books

·         Little brother/sister born/moved in

·         Divorce in the family

·         Winning the big game

·         Losing the big game

·         Favorite subject at school

·         Hanging out with friends

·         Career goals

Your list should suit you. You don’t have to choose something from the list above; they’re just ideas. It needs to have at least 10 items on it. See the back of this page for a handy place to write them down.

Day Two

For each of at least three items on your list, find a school-appropriate song that fits. Write them down in the space provided, making sure to include the name of the artist or band who recorded them.

Day Three

For each of at least three items on your list, find a school-appropriate song that fits. Write them down in the space provided, making sure to include the name of the artist or band who recorded them.

Day Four

For each of at least three items on your list, find a school-appropriate song that fits. Write them down in the space provided, making sure to include the name of the artist or band who recorded them.

Day Five

Pick any 5-10 events and their songs to make up your sound track. Don’t worry about whether anybody else would understand your list, or whether anyone else would like your songs. This is your list and your life. The only rule is that the songs must be appropriate for school: nothing too suggestive, too violent, or with lots of cursing. The songs can come from any style or genre of music, from classical to rap to reggae, as long as it fits the story you’re trying to tell. Have fun! I look forward to seeing your special list.

Be safe until we can all return to school.

AMI - Choir and Guitar 2018-2019 – Soundtrack of My Life Project

Use this space to list songs with your life’s story (must have at least 10 - but not limited to 10 - life events and songs). If you need more space, use a sheet of notebook paper. Check the box next to the number of the event/song/artist combinations you’ve chosen as your sound track (5-10 songs).
