Hey there Chrispins readers! It’s been a while! I’m here with my latest playlist which I’ve nicknamed “Shazam Dump” because many of the songs came from my tagged Shazams. I also stole a few from fellow instructor and music maker Peter Gonzales. He recently shared this amazing playlist with me and I’ve found a ton great songs here:
Make sure you follow him on Spotify while you’re checking out the playlist!
My classes really enjoyed this ride as well as the tunes and I hope you enjoy it too. As always, brief notes are given but please remember, that this is just a very short overview of my notes, not a detailed explanation of how I taught the class. That is up to your discretion as always.
