Science can transform even the strangest resources into cool stuff! This program is flexible and can be done in a solo, duo or trio size depending on your projected audience size and budget. We can present for very young audiences (3-6 yrs), school age audiences or family audiences. Optional hands-on instrument-building and parade/jam session available. Excellent connections to summer reading, environmental programs, music and science book programs, as well as occasions such as Earth Day, National Recycling Day, Arbor Day, World Water Day, etc.

Haynes, Jeff The Rhythm & Your Words Literature- Poetry,
Music,
Performing Arts- Literary Artists
Sometimes the key to self expression is to listen. Percussionist Jeff Haynes creates an array of percussive landscapes, to help writers heighten their awareness and sensitivity to the rhythm and the range of their inner voice. Over the course of this two day writing and performance workshop, participants will be engaged in various exercises and discussions to help them connect Jeff’s percussive textures with their inner voice. They will see first hand how percussion can bring out different inflections in their writing and delivery. The workshop invites participants to bring their poems to perform with Jeff and/or come with an open mind, ready to write and perform something inspired by the sessions. As participants listen to Jeff play, they will become in-tune with the “voice” of the rhythm. Participants will be challenged to allow their writing and performances to reflect on: how the rhythm makes them feel; where does it take them; and what their inner voice will say in return. Each participant will perform with Jeff.

Florez, Karla Tamarindo Multicultural- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Tamarindo is a children's book adapted to be performed as a story telling and dance form. It shows how boys and girls from El Canal del Dique region in the Carribean coast of Colombia love to paint their bodies with black paint as a remembrance of the period in slavery and the freedom from it. A special characteristic in this story is the use of facial gestures. I retell the story by telling of a boy whom is loved throughout the town and enjoy dancing in despite of living in reduced circumstances. Values like rejoice, love and courage are shown in this story while dancing and keeping the contagious rhythm of Danza negra.

Music,
Performing Arts- Other
The mountain dulcimer is a "user friendly" instrument that came to this country with our pioneer forefathers. In the first lesson, we’ll sing and play songs, and use a number system to learn (individually and as a group) about rhythm, ‘reading’ music notes for the dulcimer, and in future lessons advance to a few simple chords. Instruments are supplied for use during class. 
 We will use our ear and our voices in this interactive class. Dulcimers are available for use during class and may be rented or purchased for a nominal fee through instructor. If rented, they must be returned in same condition at end of class sessions. More info is available at time of contract negotiation. There is an option for building a dulcimer using a pre-made kit as part of program.
