Folk Metal...

    Usually when I'm sad I cry a lot and I have trouble sleeping because when I'm sad I always listen to the Folk metal music because their music and lyrics I relax, I can breathe better and produce me feel like dancing and / or rotate my whole room with his eyes closed. Tears are slowly and always end with a smile or as relaxed as I can sleep peacefully.
Sometimes you just hear harmonious and soothing tunes and other songs are loud and energetic. I do not care all make me happy!

    Folk metal is a sub-genre of heavy metal music that developed in Europe during the 1990s. The genre is a fusion of heavy metal with traditional folk music. Are also common groups Celtic rhythms combined with black metal or death metal.
 The most common theme tends to focus on the traditions of their peoples, ancient European pagan beliefs, nature, fantasy, mythology, epic battles between opposing sides and holiday themes.

The instruments:
Folk metal feature the same typical instruments found in heavy metal music: guitars, bass, drums and vocalist.  The most folk metal groups mingle their instruments in common with bagpipes, flutes, violins and hurdy-gurdy.

One of the most popular Spanish bands is Wizard of Oz ... I love it!

Alexander Neil and the Summerhill School

My important person in education is Alexander Sutherland Neill.
(He born in Forfar, Scotland in 1883 and he died in 1973.)
He was a progressive educator, but he was very criticized by the traditional schools, He is best known as an advocate of personal freedom for children.
He said the consequent unhappiness experienced by the repressed child, is responsible for many of the psychological disorders of adulthood and the stric schools results unhappines experiences in the children.

He worked in public school but wasn`t happy with the authoritarianism and school rules.  He founded the Summerhill School in 1927, England.
 In this school the children are free and happy. All children are entitled to give his opinion and preparation their own learning.  They can smoke at school because children and teachers voted in an assembly. All said yes.

Neil I like because he think in the importance for the self-study self-studyself-study, in the freedom to choose and l learning through play.  He believes in the inteligence of the children, in their ability to choose what they want to do at school and in their future.

I think his philosophy is the best in education...
