Respiratory Therapy students direct hand washing music video

Seniors Yuen Ying Ha, Ashley Tolentino, Christian Alonzo, and Kathleen Agusto practice their roles in the song the Respiratory Therapy class created. After they created the choreography, they recorded a video and posted it on YouTube.

Respiratory Therapy juniors have been assigned to write a song and create a video on proper hand washing. The students have learned and memorized 12 steps to wash their hands correctly and effectively. The class was divided into six groups, and each group wrote their own specific part of the song to the tune of “Ob-la-di Ob-la-da” by The Beatles.

“This song was fun to make. It taught us how to wash our hands, and it made us realize how musically talented we all are!” exclaims JC Mark Dator, junior.

After changing the lyrics of the song, the class will now be working together to sing, dance, and perform the song. Some instruments that will be played by students are the guitar, ukulele, flute, cajon, and violin. They still need to film the video, which will be edited by one of the students.

“I think that we’re going to have a lot of fun making this video. It’s a good way to bond with our class and learn,” states junior Richard Dela Cruz.

Filming the video will take place between January 9 to January 13, 2011. If it is possible, it may air on Rout(e) 131 for the whole school to view. The project is due by January 16, 2012.
