What Kind of Person Do I Want to Be w/D. Jorden, My Students, Rich, Andy, Mike, Bryn, & Bob

Description
David Jorden is a 5th grade teacher at our school. He came to me early this year with a song idea for the school’s character education program. We spent two afternoons together in my classroom writing the lyrics and melodies. As we wrote each line I recorded his vocals right then and there. David came to the first session with the bridge already written.

I then sent the track out to Rich, Andy, and Mike. As usual all three came back with stellar performances taking the song to a new level.

Then on November 18th I recorded the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students singing the song’s chorus. Our school's music teacher, Kathryn McKamey, helped prepare the students for the recording. The classes came to the music room in groups of 40 to 50. I projected the GarageBand file on a screen so they could see how the recording was made. Both the students and their teachers were amazed to learn musicians across the globe could collaborate on music via the Internet.

Bryn and Bob placed the final touches on this with a wonderful mastering job and charming artwork respectively.
I’d like to thank Karen (magnatone) and Dani (RAVENS) for lending their expert ears during this project. And thank you Ryan for helping me with the bass line.

D. Jorden: lead & harmony vocals
alackbass: electric guitar & electric bass
paddler: all keyboards
awigze: tenor saxophone
kevmikwa: drums & percussion
The 3rd, 4th, & 5th grade students of Wimauma Elementary School: background vocals

Lyrics
What Kind of Person Do I Want to Be
Words & Music by David Jorden & Andrew Lack

Chorus
What kind of person do I want to be?
What kind of life do I want to lead?
It’s my responsibility,
To be the best me that I can be
To be the best me that I can be

Verse 1
I will be honest and always tell the truth
For me generosity will be the golden rule
I will be loyal and be right by your side
When you’re down or you’ve been hurt,
Just watch my compassion rise

Chorus
What kind of person do I want to be?
What kind of life do I want to lead?
It’s my responsibility,
To be the best me that I can be
To be the best me that I can be

Verse 2
I will be humble and never brag or boast
For me integrity will always matter most
I will show kindness in every word and deed
When you feel alone and need someone,
My friendship will fill the need

Chorus
What kind of person do I want to be?
What kind of life do I want to lead?
It’s my responsibility
To be the best me that I can be
To be the best me that I can be

Bridge
A world full of possibilities
And I keep wondering what they all want from me
Scream the message every boy and girl
If you got character you can change the world

Verse 3
I will show courage,
And always do what’s right
Sometimes the courageous one,
Chooses not to fight.
I’ll be responsible,
And always follow through
Make no excuses
I’ll do what I have to do

Chorus
What kind of person do I want to be?
What kind of life do I want to lead?
It’s my responsibility,
To be the best me that I can be
To be the best me that I can be

I so love
that these kids are getting to see the collaboration effort and how it works... I'm really hoping everyone of these kids goes home and bugs the heck out of mom and dad to get them a Mac with GarageBand.

Simon... Miguel... Get ready to expand the MacJams servers. I think Andrew is gonna be bringing in a bunch of new blood!

Outstanding work by all!

Thanks Mark
Actually I am starting an after school music tech enrichment program. We're a PC environment so we'll be using Acid Studio, Korg Nano Keyboards, and inexpensive USB mics. The kids will experiment with loops, MIDI editing, and adding their own voices. Later in life they'll take the Mac plunge as I did and have their lives changed.

You're always so supportive. Thank you friend!

Okay Mark now I'm all out of............never mind.

What Kind of Person
it was so much fun and such an honor to hear a few of the early versions of this as it came together, and thanks for that opportunity andrew. your work here, particularly on the kid's chorus which turned out SO perfectly, is just stellar. you are showing yourself to be an exceptional herder of cats, and you're developing an ear and skill in mixing second to none. GREAT work from David, Rich, Andy, Mike, Bryn and Bob's wonderful art - and those kids! thanks for this gift!

This place is like college, only without the hangover and arrest record. I've learned so much from the kind folks here at MJ. Becoming a member here has truly changed my life.

It's easy to herd the cats when they are as talented as the team I had on this.

Wow, maybe the largest collab to date here, especially when you consider all the kids singing on here. This is really cool. The kids must have been ecstatic to hear this finished! Pro sound in every way on this track. Everything is polished and clear. Great job on the kids voices too, really clear and it sits in the mix perfectly. Great positive message too. Standing Ovation on this one!

Great concept, great song
Great song everyone! It is a really strong song with fantastic vocals and instrumentals. The mix and mastering are first-rate. I also really like you bringing the kids on board and also showing them how it gets put together in GB. GB is software as it should be, allowing the user/s to express their thoughts and personality without too much technical stuff getting in the way. Thanks.

So True
Until I bought my first Mac just about two years ago I never did any home recording. The Mac, Garageband, and my membership here have changed my life. The encouragement and advice I've received from countless members is priceless. And the access to talented musicians like the crew that played on this is simply amazing.

Thanks again for the listen and kind comments. We appreciate it.

LOL That's so typical of my work day!

Mike, Rich, and Andy just nailed this one. Originally this had drum loops. But when I heard Mike's performance on "Flaunt It" I muted the loops and dropped this one in his DropBox. First take, no discussion he came back with what you hear now. Andy, Rich, & Mike! You just can't go wrong with those guys.

Thanks Chris!
The concept was David's.

As for the bass line, when Mike dropped his drum track it reminded me right away of David Garibaldi. So it required a Rocco sort of line. Ryan came up with the basic idea. Then I simplified it to accommodate my limited chops.

Thanks so much for the listen and kind feedback. We appreciate it.

This already is something greater than the sum of it's parts. I am very proud of the students and the teachers at Wimauma Elementary School who have created an environment of creativity and learning. The message is powerful and my hat is off to Mr Jorden and Mr Lack. I would gladly buy a plane ticket to be able to play with this group in a live setting.... Thank you deeply for asking me to be in on this project. I am also glad to have collaborated with these fine musicians again and especially the 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students of this wonderful school.

A tremendously satisfying creation you have here, all of you should be proud of this, in many ways. The collaboration, the teaching and showing that (and how) this can be done, to the teachers as well as the children, THIS one act will CHANGE many people, now that they are part of the team that made this happen. Congratulations on a very successful teaching project. Wonderful song, excellent performance. Wish the children's chorus was slightly louder in the mix. Make sure to send them home with a URL for their parents to hear this too, you'll make a bunch of happy parents too.

I am truly blessed to have a job that allows me to integrate my love of music. So many people (as you know) find their jobs pull them away from their music. I wake everyday thankful in the knowledge that my job pushes me closer to my music.

My greatest wish for my students is that someday they will have a career as satisfying as mine.

Thanks for the constructive and supportive feedback. We all appreciate it.

I'll let you know how the kids feel about it when they finally get to hear it. They heard an early version when the music teacher (thanks Kathy) taught them their part. Then when I recorded them it had to be done a cappella (I didn't have 40 sets of headphones). They have yet to hear the finished product.

They were blown away when I told them no one ever sang that song all the way through. They could see the little blocks of sound and how it was recorded phrase by phrase. Then they got to hear how the vocals were layered. Keep in mind, they think of David as the guy teaching them reading everyday, not a singer.

But what really blew them away was learning Rich sent his parts in an email from across the ocean. Come to think of it, that still blows my mind.

I learned on "Flaunt It" just bring those guys back. I knew David could sing but was unprepared for just how quickly he laid it down. I would give him a line to sing and he sang it. Then I gave him a harmony and he just laid it down. There were a few phrases that required multiple takes but not many.

Thanks Adam
The challenge with blending an adult male voice with young children is pretty daunting. David is clearly a baritone. The key we wrote it in turned out to be less than ideal for the kids. His octave was too low and the octave higher was too high. When the music teacher brought this to my attention we were two days away from my scheduled time to record them. So I gave the students a harmony (a third up from the lead) at the session. Asking school children to nail something like that on the spot is asking a lot. It also wasn't a rehearsed (select) group of students (school choir). The recording was done during a career day type of event. The experience and opportunity to open a new door for the students was the primary goal. So in the end if the student's part came out more like a chant than a proper harmony line, I was good with that. The image I take from it is David leads the students in audience participation rather than the students acting as a proper choir behind him.

Thanks again for the listen and kind feedback.

And moving on to what that means for the kids, well if they can take this through life with them, they're onto a winner. They're lucky to have the pair of you as inspirational teachers.

I just wrote a song that includes the line "I'll be the best me that I can be." Now when I post it everyone will think I copied you! Some friend YOU are... LOL

As for the tune. Delightfully funky. Excellent vocals. Great band!

We were actually struggling to get some decent sounding takes. Then one of the 4th graders came up with the answer (although he didn't realize it at the time). I sang a phrase and then he repeated me on the next downbeat. I then realized I shouldn't try to record them while the backing track was playing. I just recorded them to a click answering me after I sang each phrase. Each class took several passes at it so I could edit together the best bits from each. Then I demonstrated how I would edit my voice out and move their phrases over to line up with David.

Thanks again for stopping by to listen and comment.

Only if I had had these kind of songs at my school 'back in the day'.
The ones we had were quite tacky (and I use the word 'tacky' out of sheer kindness).

Anyway - this comes together perfectly. So upbeat and fun and delightfully optimistic and constructive.
A wonderful performance by everyone - with a special tip o' the hat to the kids.

Again - Great fun!

And of course that group of little people with the big voices.

I've heard teachers say
"If I can reach just one kid.. it will all be worth it" Andrew and Dave you both hit your quota the first day you started. Teachers like you are truly few and far between. This song, performance and production speaks volumes in that respect. Teachers willing to put this kind of time and effort into a non curricular endevour like this, are worth their weight in gold. Those 3rd 4th and 5th grade students will have this wonderful song and memory for the rest of their lives.

The rest of you involved involved in this project I suspect knew how valuable it was, and participated eagerly and whole heartedly. It will be obvious to all who listen, that the love within this alone, would have been enough for it to reverberate through the halls of that school for an eternity. The effort from Richard, Andy, Mike, Bryn, Bob and the children (Karen and Dani too) only added delicious icing to that very substantial cake.

Absolutely the most powerful piece I have found here to date. Thank you all very very much

pretty much guaranteed with such a funky song. I particularly enjoyed the bass line. Rocco Prestia would be proud.

About those lyrics. With the caveat that I never write lyrics.... And that I find children to be an alien species.... Do those verses seriously resonate with children? I wonder if it doesn't make them roll their eyes. But you're the teacher. You tell me.

Good question about the lyrics. I teach in elementary school! With those younger children there's a good chance they'll resonate. If I were teaching in middle school, forget it. They'd be guaranteed eye rollers. Then there's also the possibility they hear, they get it, it has a positive effect, even if they won't admit it! Thanks for the listen Vic. We appreciate it!

I love it!
Andrew, the educational experience of sharing this process with those kids is beyond school system design or conception. This is paradigm shifting experience for kids and teachers alike. The outcome of stuff like this on kids is always to spur a generational shift in someone and then they jump those light years to something we could not have imagined. The effect on teachers is to show how "real" education can and should be and how, when everyone joins in the experience we learn and grow in spite of everything. Bravo on this again, and again, and . . .!

Wow......that was a lot of support and kindness. We appreciate it. I don't know if this will have the profound effect you describe but I sure hope you're right. The problem is, right after it was finished we all get back to work preparing the kids for the State mandated standardized tests they'll all take in the spring. There is a follow up in the works and an after school enrichment class where students get to experiment with music creation. Hopefully those follow up activities will help this sort of think take root.

Very cool, hearing about you projecting the GB file on the screen. I have an old CRT TV (32") in my room, and I have done the same thing, but I sure would love to have a big screen sometime to do this.

The kids sound quite awesome on this track. Reminds me a lot of the kids on "Another Brick In The Wall" by Pink Floyd. (But with a much more positive spin!)

Your vocals are great, Andrew. Very pop-friendly. As good or better as many artists I hear on the radio.

Keys on this track are super!

A whole lot of work and love went into this track and it shows. I hope you get paid for this stuff sometime, if you have not already.
