Edmund Burke once said, “Those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it”. So how do you inspire young people to care about their country and grow up to make a difference? Sandy Wilbur Music Inc. has found the answer, Learning History Through Music. Learning History Through Music addresses three important subject areas that are not only important historically but also have great relevance today: 1) The Preamble to the Constitution, the history surrounding the writing of the Constitution, and how these rules are relevant today; 2) The Gettysburg Address, Lincoln’s part in the Civil War and what equality and equality of opportunity mean today and 3) Immigration and how most of us come from immigrant families, and the Statue of Liberty as a symbol of our democratic freedoms.

In 2010, The National Assessment of Educational Progress reported that two-thirds of students are not proficient in Civics and less than half of 8th graders surveyed knew purpose of the Bill of Rights; only 1 in 10 had age appropriate knowledge of the system of checks and balances between our branches of government. (“Civics 2010: the Nation’s Report Card,” National Assessment of Educational Progress {NAEP}, administered by the National Assessment Governing Board, http://nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/pdf/main2010/2011466.pdf). “We need a new way to look at government and democracy. We need our children, our future leaders, to be engaged in the process,” Sandy Wilbur. The book aims to foster a love for learning through understanding the past.

About Sandy Wilbur Inc.

Sandy is an award-winning composer with over forty songs recorded and five chart singles to her credit. She has composed and produced hundreds of jingles and scores and is currently a forensic musicologist with expertise in music copyright infringement, sound-alike, and public domain issues. Sandy was asked by a music teacher to write a song that kids would like to sing, that would help them memorize the Preamble to the Constitution, and tie in with their social studies curriculum. "We The People" is the result of that effort. The response, support and encouragement of teachers, students, and the general public for more material like “We The People” prompted the next two videos, “She Still Carries A Torch” and “Four Score And Seven Years Ago.” For more information on Sandy, please go to http://www.musicology.com.
