Ave Maria is a beautiful and stately piece. Its sustained notes and lines make it a perfect piece to teach the rise and fall of energy in a long phrase. It is also a good piece for teaching breath support during a long and sustained line. Although it is a fairly simple piece for use with 6th and 7th graders, it could be very satisfying for older middle level students to sing also due to the musicianship required.
