TROIS CHANSONS PETITE EN FRANCAISES, a song set with three favorite little songs in French (and a tribute to a beloved teacher)

Posted on: January 30, 2016

I started taking French classes in Middle School.  It was there that I met one of my life’s greatest friends, Peter O.  We proceeded to high school, laughing all the way like Jingle Bells and driving our teachers bananas.  It was in High School, both Peter and I landed in the class of Mr. Donald Goacher.  Mr. Goacher became and is still one of my all time favorite teachers.  He made me a student assistant, doing administrative type jobs for him. I spent one whole semester laminating prints of great paintings by French artists which initiated my love of museums and art.  He made me love learning, especially appreciating how learning a language leads to a deeper appreciation of culture.

I’ve retained some of that French I learned those many years ago in Middle and High School.  In my Sing Books life, a few little songs in French have captured my heart.  This is a little set of three of my favorites. When I sing them, I always think of wonderful Mr. Goacher, wearing his bright green blazer.
