I did a full day residency at this PA school on Thursday, with two assemblies and several songwriting workshops with the 3rd grade. I opened with an introductory assembly, and did three workshops with individual classes, a performance workshop with them, and a final assembly introducing the new song.
We democratically selected to do a song about homophones, and each class added to the verses, including a final verse incorporating the weather alert we went through during the last session. We performed the song for the final assembly, along with ‘Peanut Butter’ for the whole school.
The next part involves producing a DVD with the song, the lyrics, student art works, live video and still pix of the kids, to be returned to the school after much DF production work.
It’s all so amazing.
