All it takes is one teacher to make a difference in a student's life. For that reason I am, and always will be, eternally grateful to the teachers that shaped my life and taught me to believe in myself. See what one teacher in Santa Monica is doing to further music and inspire his students.
Big Voice is a musical feature documentary about Santa Monica High School's hugely committed choir director and his students. By capturing the extraordinary accomplishments of this public school program, Big Voice demonstrates the possibility of excellent public education and even more specifically the value of arts education within our public schools.
During these challenging times when the media has it's focus on all the problems we're facing, let's celebrate what's right with the world, to shed light on the beauty of the human spirit, to inspire youth to aspire to achieve their dreams, even when it feels impossible.
Big Voice will follow Mr. Huls and his teenage students interweaving interviews and concerts with ‘slices of life’ footage. It will explore what it means to be a teenager facing an unknown future, and an accomplished artist creating great art in the context of a public school. In addition, this visually stunning documentary will include original songs created for and by the students with the assistance of Grammy-winning artists.
