The Shows

I'm Taking Care of Me-Through song, stories, dance and puppetry, students learn about various aspects of maintaining personal health and well being. Topics include nutrition, exercise, hygiene, reading, self-esteem. This is no preachy program, just a fun introduction that can be enhanced later in the classroom. (Pre-K to 3rd grade)

The Mathematics of Music- Patterns are Everywhere- Using chant, clapping, singing, simple instruments, drums and visuals, students are introduced to the mathematical relationships in rhythm, tempo and melody. They learn about note values, melodic and rhythmic patterns. Fun addition and subtraction with notes can be brought back to the class for extra practice. Teachers can incorporate the chant ideas for syllable recognition. Make music pizza, or musical stew. (Pre K-6th grade)

Family Fun Show- a fun-filled, totally interactive music show guaranteed to have you dancing out of your seat. Great for spring festivals, fund raisers, back to school nights.
