  23. Great music! Nice job everyone!

  24. so I voted but I changed my mind anyone know if I can change my vote

    • Corrie Anna Campbell

      Hi Quinn! Unfortunately, you cannot change your vote. We have hundreds of votes at this point, and it would just be too hard to keep track of your changed vote. Sorry about that! Keep in mind that there will be 4 winners, so you may very well get to hear your first choice as well. =)

      • There will be four winners??? Like the top four songs get picked and are rotated or something like that? Sorry~I’m a little confused! I thought there would only be one winner! πŸ˜€

  25. Can multiple people vote on one email?

    • Corrie Anna Campbell

      Hi Megan! We’d prefer not, sorry about that. The reason the email is a required field is to verify that there are multiple people voting.

  26. Life of a Sun and Good Dog are my favs! Besides Tyler and I are in the same classroom! πŸ˜€

    • We vote at the bottom of the page. There is the list of songs with little circles next to them, like the automated tests at TPS. We clicked the circle next to the song we choose, put our name and email in the boxes below, and click submit.

  27. How do we vote for a song?

    • Sorry~I posted the answer to this question above!

  28. Wow these are awesome!

    • YES THEY ARE!!!!! Everyone’s hard work shows in the songs! Thanks guys for giving us these great selections to choose from!

  29. These are so amazing! Great work everyone!

  30. How do I pick?!?! Outstanding work you guys!

  31. And by the way, does anyone know how to change their design to a picture of their own choice?

  32. When do we hear who the winner is?

  33. All seven songs should be winners.

    • They should announce the winners sometime after March 15, when the voting closes…

      • They voting won’t close till after the 15th, so there isn’t any winner yet, but they’ll announce it on another article I’m guessing.

  34. They were all amazing but the accordian was definently my favorite. Where can I find out which one won?

  35. How do you know if your vote is submitted? There is no submit button.

  36. There is a submit button on the bottom of the page.

  37. I like Alisha Wong’s the most.

  38. I love Rose Zhang’s piano piece! It was sooo beautiful

  39. There is no submit button there for me or anywhere on the page except for the subscribe option.

  40. Too hard to pick! I think we’ll all be happy with whatever wins!

  41. the accordion one was awesome

  42. these are all really great songs!

  43. Here’s what I’m wondering. What’s changed that we’re able to do this? Ever since I started with TPS in 2011 students have been campaigning to change the meeting software’s background music, and it was never an option as TPS did not own or control what GatherWorks did with their software. Why now?

    • That is a v good question :joy:
      I mean, they managed to change the music to “Sing the Distance Away” a while ago, so I assume they managed to persuade? GW to do something. Anyway, it’s a great change imo

  44. When will the results be posted?

  45. Sometime after March 15.

  46. These are all amazing! Can’t see who wins πŸ™‚

  47. Woah! These are so good! I especially liked “Good Dog.” Good luck to all of the finalists

  48. Ahhhh these are all super good!!! I can’t wait to see who wins!! I’m pretty sure no matter who wins, I’ll love it ?

  49. Everybody did an absolutely outstanding job! Can’t wait to see the results!

  50. These songs are gr8!!
    can’t wait to see who wins!

  51. Rebecca Shangguan

    When will the winners be announced? after voting closes?

  52. can we vote next year?

  53. where do we find who won?

    • Rebecca Shangguan

      I guess they will announce it in Clay? or perhaps Forums

      • They have already installed two pieces that keep switching off for GP6 music yesterday….I think that we’ll just hear the top four as they get put on for classroom music. If you go in a classroom, they’re playing Rose’s Chopin and Good Dog on rotation so far.

      • Corrie Anna Campbell

        An official announcement is coming soon! =)

  54. For those that are wondering:
    Rose Zhang’s “Nocturne,” Tyler Tewell’s “Good Dog,” Nyah Dufek’s “Take Away,” and Alisha Wong’s “Hello I’m New To This” made it in.

    Except GP6 killed the quality of all of them rip Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―

  55. I can’t hear some of the songs… It says “error” or it just doesn’t play at all.

  56. Rose and Hannah, you two are such amazing pianists!!
