*L* I'm glad I'm not the only "singer"! Actually, if I need to get the
class' attention, after the first request I will do something oddball to
grab them. I will stand on the counter, sing, do jumping jacks - sure beats
having to yell, and it is VERY effective. :-) One of my student's favorite
classic music is a Yoga CD that I picked up at Goodwill. They call it the
"medication" music, because they misunderstood me when I gave them the
title. They also really like guitar music.
