LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - More students in our area are learning how to express themselves through the use of song.
This week students at Longfellow and Logan Middle Schools got visits from singer-songwriter Luke Callen ahead of this weekend's Midwest Music Fest.
He stopped by 6th grade social studies classes to help them express their ideas about the subjects they're learning by creating songs.
"Not only how to write the song, but then the process of going through changing lyrics and changing when you're writing it doesn't matter, it may take a long time and it may take a little time, it just depends. And the collaboration piece, so the kids today worked together, collaborating to come up with their song," said teacher Teri Kendhammer.
The musician visit was made possible by a grant from the La Crosse Public Education Foundation.
