“Man Against Machine”, inspired by the folk tale of John Henry, offers an opportunity for your students to practice musical storytelling. This legendary story is an opportunity for SEL (social emotional learning) in your classroom as you discuss grit and work ethic with your students. The educational possibilities are endless with this well written and crafted composition for the young band!
