Assembly / Performance

Description

Lisa and Mikel encourage young viewers to listen to the music found in the sounds of nature while singing songs inspired by nature. They also incorporate songs that provide some basic sign language and counting opportunities. This virtual assembly is an interactive and inspiring performance that encourages children to “be a part of the band,” and join in the music-making. Children participate through body movement and voice. Creative expression is encouraged with every song, as young children interpret different styles of music and respond to singing games, which introduce beat, tempo, and rhythm.

Testimonials

"I really enjoyed learning from Ms. Lisa and looked forward to her visits. She taught me how to get the children's attention through movement and music in every subject. I particularly liked the slide whistle that she gave me that helped the class hear and anticipate movements, like up and down. I enjoy reading, so adding music to stories that have repetition was a wonderful way to get the children to participate in the reading. Lisa was great and we would love to have her again next year!"
