I work at a small music school where we hold raffles at fairs for a big giveaway. We pick the winner fairly and proceed to contact others who participated by offering a free lesson. I'd like to contact non winners only after the winner has claimed their prize but it was suggested to contact everyone regardless if the winner claims prize. What's the best protocol when dealing with raffle giveaways?

For all you current and former medical school students out there: what one song defined your experience in medical school - especially year one. I'm looking for the song that has meaning but also a bit of tongue-in-cheek built in. It's the song you came up with on the back side of a marathon study session (while delirious). Does such a song exist?

I'm looking for resources for a home school music appreciation curriculum. I'd like to start at 'the beginning' (what is music, what are its origins) and work my way up to present day music.
