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.

Lipton, Zachary Zack Lipton Quintet - Jazz Performance and Workshop Music
The Zack Lipton Quintet is an active performing and recording unit in New York's vibrant Jazz scene. Formed in the fall of 2005, the Zack Lipton Quintet is a collective of musicians committed to dismantling popular notions of the boundaries between musical idioms. The band uses original compositions as a vehicle for synthesizing its members' eclectic tastes without compromising the integrity of any of its influences. Drawing from influences as diverse as John Coltrane and Stevie Wonder, the band performs music that is both intellectually and artistically advanced while remaining culturally relevant. Performances consist of performing mostly original works as well as some inventive takes on standard repertoire. Sets can be as short as 45 minutes and as long as 90 minutes. Between tunes, Zack will generally introduce the band and also provide commentary suitable to the level of the audience to contextualize the songs played. The Quintet can also participate in Question and Answer sessions and/or clinics with student bands before or after performances.

Clough, Geoff Cookie Songwriting Music,
Performing Arts- Other
Cookie Songwriting is where I teach children how to write songs using cookies! I have a treble staff table with a cookie treasure chest. I call a child up to let them pick a bag of 5 cookies to use in creating their own song. Placing them on a line or space as I direct them along regarding high notes, low notes, etc. When they have their cookies/notes down I copy them over onto a musical inspiration pad (manuscript paper) and play them back their melody. Then I set to creating the harmony & note lengths. I ask the child/children what styles do they like? Country Rock, Ska, Hip Hop, etc. Then I will play the song back to them in that style. The children love it and most start to dance to their own song. Afterwards I help the child name it & I give them their sheet music with their name on it & copyright year. :)
