  • November 10, 2010 A Song Every High Schooler Must Experience!

    I simply love this song. Every high school student should get the chance to learn this piece. A Director picks songs because of how they sound and how they feel when they hear it, but songs are also a learning experience. Songs like Cloudbust (and trust me, there aren't...

    alot of them) teach you so much about technique that it is amazing. The clashing harmonies are something that I personally love. The rain simulation sounds extremely convincing, especially when closing your eyes. Simply amazing. A student should not end their high school career without having contact with this song!

    is truly fantastic. If you've never heard the song, I suggest you find it somewhere because it truly is one of the best songs I have ever heard.
