Performing Arts- Storytelling
Parents and preschoolers alike will sing along with Miss Dara and her guitar. Learn finger plays, songs and interactive rhymes. Topics vary with the seasons and are interdisciplinary, much in the same way as a nursery school curriculum. Each session is filled with things that appeal to all a young child's senses with visuals, movement activities and a story related to the topic. All of this is done with live music so children can see that music is created and played by people, not just something that comes out of an electronic box.

Throughout her singing/songwriting career, Mila has performed all over New York State and beyond, in such famous songwriting venues as The Bottom Line (NYC), Sidewalk Café (NYC), Café Vivaldi (NYC), Two Boots (CT), Clinton Arts and Music Festival (Clinton, NY), SS Cape May Festival(NJ), as well as at some international venues.x

Jones, Dean Songwriting with the Fleas Literature- Creative Writing,
Music
Dog on Fleas will begin the program by playing some of their original songs and talking about the writing process for the songs. Band members will then divide the audience up into groups and then help the groups write songs. The songwriting will be guerilla-style quick, and will hopefully let audience members take home a template for how to write a song, and most importantly access an outlet for self-expression. The band will then perform the songs with help from audience members. Dog on Fleas will end the program with more of their own music.

Neiman, Oren The Oren Neiman Quartet Multicultural- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
Guitarist Oren Neiman’s music is both innovative and in the forefront of today’s jazz styles, as well as being celebrated for his technical precision. His compositions explore a combination of Jazz sensibility with Middle Eastern rhythms and melody. Oren has regularly performed with his quartet in NY venues like The Bitter End, Detour, Joe’s Pub, The 55 Bar, Cornelia St. Cafe and Makor, as well as touring nationally and internationally (most recently Spain, Canada and Israel). Oren was also an Artist in Residence at the 92nd St. Y, and has received an Arts Alive project grant from Westchester Arts Council. “Neiman’s new recording (Frolic and Detour), with a new quartet, is quite a unique statement. It is predominantly Jazzy, but it also touches upon ethnic themes and rhythmic patterns, often using odd meters and unusual harmony. Also the unusual sound blend of the guitar / trumpet combination gives the listener the impression of hearing something innovative and rarely attempted before.” - Adam Baruch www.jazzis.com For a more detailed description of the band,sets, plus musical examples(Electronic press kit) please see www.sonicbids.com/theorenneimanquartet
