A high school teacher at Romeo High School has hopes to teach more children the American Sign Language with the use of popular music artists. Brittany Adams, who teaches American Sign Language, has started creating her own music videos in sign language to popular kids artists such as Clean Bandit and Taylor Swift. She chooses signs that fit best with the lyrics of the song, the produces YouTube videos with the help of her husband. Each video she has created has been a huge hit amongst all of her students.
Adams’ process begins with choosing the right song. She chooses the best music that makes her students want to dance and listen. The most difficult part of the process is how to interpret the sign language. Each person has their own interpretation of music. Each video takes close to two weeks to fully produce; however, Adams has been very interested in signing since she was a young child. Although her students are her main audience, Adams is hoping that more children become interested in learning Sign Language with the help of her videos.
