The song, On the Peace Wheel, grew as an extension of our Montessori school and of Montessori Model United Nations, of which we have played an active part since it began. The song, for us, represents the very real attainability of peace in the world. In the words of the children, Why cant we just share? and We all deserve a peaceful land.
The poem that precedes the song was written entirely through the collaborative efforts of the children (ages 6 to 13). The song was co-written by local singer/songwriter and musician, Angelo Spinazzola, over a period of about 2 months. Angelos passion for this project was inspiring for the children.
After countless hours of writing, re-writing and practice, the children went to SoundPark Studios and spend the entire day recording the song. A special thank you to Ed Woodsworth (bass) and Darren Gallop (percussion) for volunteering their time and talent to this project.
The children are showing that the lyrics to the song have deep meaning for them. They are selling the CDs to raise money for the charity Free the Children, an organization of children helping children. The 4 students from the group who are members of Montessori Model UN will take the CDs to the MMUN conference in New York City.
