Literature- Creative Writing,
Music
Chip Richter’s Young Songwriters Workshop is an exciting and fun journey through the craft of writing songs. Students will explore the four elements of song writing, the form and foundation of a song, and discover what makes a lyric work. Learning how to use hooks, rhymes, and words that sing, students will have the opportunity to begin writing their own songs right away. The students will listen to songs, sing songs, analyze and diagram songs, all in a very fun, interactive way. The Young Songwriters Workshop works well as a plug-in to your local school’s English and or Language Arts course study. Many teachers will use the Young Songwriters Workshop to culminate a section on journaling, poetry, or creative writing. In the end students will have lots of fun, discover the magic of words, and learn something about what's in a song and perhaps, what's in their heart.

Bromka, Sondra & John Dreaming, Digging In, and Doing: 'THE ANT & THE GRASSHOPPER, AESOP'S FABLED FIDDLER' Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Performing Arts- Dance
Bells & Motley's musical storytelling performance is a Greek classic concerning the value of Dreaming, Digging In, and Doing! We all understand how our lives' pressing labors hang in a balance with the wonders of artistry and expression, through colors and sounds and dances. In our telling, we are confident that all will appreciate the carefully drawn moral concerning the value of both work & play. As we weave the tale through Ant and Grasshopper’s year in four episodes, each scene begins with the appropriate movement of Vivaldi's 'Four Seasons' evocatively performed by the artists on harp, nyckelharpa, tromba marina, and winds. The action and mystique of the tale are further highlighted by the audiences’ contributions on medieval fiddles (researched and built by the artists themselves), percussion, and dancing. At the end of our maiden performance of this show, a young fellow excitedly asked: 'Where will we all be performing this next?' Exploratory Expressions by audience+artists, before the performance: -The Grasshopper's Fiddling Troupe - The Ant's Percussion Troupe - The Butterfly Dancers And now, Dear Audience, Places!! Let the story begin as together we play and sing the 15th c. song of 'El Grillo' the Cricket!
