The primary goal of this lesson is to learn the song “Lean on Me,” and be able to sing it or play it on an instrument. Regardless of instrumental, vocal, or general music, listening to the song and analyzing the lyrics will allow musicians to further connect emotionally with the music. The parameters of music that are addressed can be adjusted based on each teacher within the music curriculum. Further, everybody can at least share their projects with local/community health care workers or first responders. We encourage those who are willing to post on Youtube/social media utilizing #LeanOnUs to show the world how united musicians/artists can be during a time of crisis. By reflecting on this day after, hopefully, we will all see the value of practicing gratitude in our own life.
