Vanelli's House of Music!
The Classroom Mix

maroon spacerorange spacermaroon spacer


As a music lover, I began incorporating music within my classes. After my first hit single, "Cold in Here", I dropped my name Mr. Tyler and became known on stage as Vanelli - a cross between the rappers Vanilla Ice and Nelly. Unfortunately for me, Nelly's version "Hot in Here" became an instant hit, he became a huge star, and he refuses to answer any of my phone calls.

Over the years, I have been collaborating with other artists in creating and developing my CDs. I have been adding members to my possé known as H12 or the Henrico dozen (even though I only have 5 other members at this time: 50 Sent, his boy 10 Ses, Mini Me, Laurio and AZ). Together, 50 Sent and 10 Ses serve as my bodyguards and disciplinarians. Any problems with students in my classroom are handled by 50 Sent 10 Ses - think about it...

Below are samples of the tracks from my CDs that are still in production. My first CD, entitled The Classroom Mix, has been in the studio for several years and is constantly being updated and revised. If you have any requests or suggestions of songs or artists that would fit into my collection, please let me know! I hope you enjoy...Vanelli

The Classroom Mix

These songs represent the core of my classroom. Not only do they express the emotions of my teaching style, they express the learning environment within my classroom. Remember these things - it will be cold in my classroom, I am your daddy, and don't lose the "Why" game!

Solving Equations

This is my current project. It's been difficult working with artists because the majority of them really don't enjoy advanced math topics! Special thanks to J.T. and Ciara for being the ground breakers of this activity.
