Also at the end of the class period Jaylen inquired where he could get his own audio equipment to continue to do interviews and edit. It was really heartening to know that he was interested continuing to do the work. Apparently, he interviews pro chess players and already has about 20 recordings. I had no idea! Overall it was really fantastic to get to know the students and I think we were all proud of the pieces they finished.

Honestly last Wednesday was great for a variety of reasons. It felt like such a relief to get the pieces finished for Kaleiah and Jaylen, both of whom picked up Garage Band really quickly. Kaleiah, although she can be really reserved seemed like she knew exactly what she wanted to do with her piece. With Jaylen it was a little bit more difficult because he had so much tape and so going through it all was really time consuming. He ended up just taking out his favorite part and using that bit. It was a little down to the wire but in the end it all worked out.
