Carpenter, Margot Learning to Like the World Life Skills- Other,
Multicultural- Other,
Music
In three workshops, teachers Barbara Allen and Robert Murphy show children that their deepest desire is to like the world on an honest basis, and that everything--from a flower to mathematics to their mothers--can be used to like the world. Young people learn this big, important fact--that they can honestly like the world, even as they may be critical of bad things in it, because its structure is sensible, even beautiful, a oneness of opposites. They're encouraged to love knowledge, and through these classes they learn to respect one another more and become kinder to family, friends, and people of other cultures. Class 1: Books Tell You: the World & You are a deep and surprising team; Class 2: What Will Make a Person Truly Strong; or Martin Luther King & the Children's March; Class 3: Do we Want to Be Like Music? Ken Kimmelman's award winning anti-prejudice film "Brushstrokes" is shown.

Rosenberg, Paul Colonial Dance History,
Multicultural- Other,
Music
What did people do before iPods, Xbox and SkyZone? They sang, made their own music, and danced! Are you looking for a way to bring the Colonial era to life on a budget? Get your audience to think like a colonial! They will learn firsthand how people have socialized for many generations and hear anecdotes from American (and global) history. Encourage them to come in costume from clothing they already have – or make their own. Colonial New York and New England were a crossroads of trade, commerce and culture, influenced by Dutch, French, English, African and Native American among many other peoples and traditions. Show the children how “multicultural” means more than just skin color and that it is not a new concept. The audience will connect with centuries-old traditions and participate in the traditional house party dances as generations of Americans have done – by dancing! Squares, contras and circle dances brought to American from Europe and Africa. Origins of traditional folk instruments (fiddle, modern and gourd banjo, mandolin, flute, penny whistle, piano, recorder, percussion, and more) taught during a sit-down period to talk about the dancing, music, instruments, and cultures.

Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Performing Arts- Other
I am available to play nearly any type of music, centering on folk, rock, kids, country,and bluegrass. With an interactive, humorous slant, I prefer to have folks singalong, suggest songs, and even write tunes as we go. I prefer intimate settings, (small groups are better) such as house concerts, living room-type performances, private gatherings, but I'm not limited by the size of the group.
