In conjunction with performance engagements, Colin offers the following music related programs and services, many on a reduced fee or voluntary basis.

 

  1. Concerts or musical visits to elder care and memory care facilities, hospitals, outpatient clinics: 60-90 minute presentations with lots of interaction, using portable instruments and a wide range of music. The emphasis is on the great songs of the 1930ís and 40ís with plenty of recognizable music, traditional styles and conversation.

 

  1. School assemblies for K-6:  These 60 minute shows are designed to be fun and educational.  They feature live demonstrations of a variety instruments including piano, keyboards, acoustic and electric guitars, mandolins, recorders, Irish whistles, and world percussion in a fast moving interactive format.  American history and culture are presented in an engaging concert assembly.

 

  1. Standards-based classroom presentations for K-6:  These in-class sessions are designed to address specific music, reading, and math standards in 45-60 minute blocks.  Group percussion, singing, movement, and interactive music are used to teach a variety of subject units.  Kindergarten and first grade offerings include classes on letter names, primary numbers, counting, single and double digit addition and subtraction, days of the week, months of the year, holidays, American history, and more.  Higher grades are offered units on Colonial history, Civil War history, the songs of the Great Depression, the history and influence of the blues in American culture, beginning music theory including basic chords, keys and scales for non-players and players alike, basic public speaking and microphone technique.  The presentations are designed to work with existing curriculums and needs of local teachers.

 

  1. Piano classes and workshops:  1-3 hour sessions covering practice methods, memorization techniques, arrangement, left hand patterns, historic blues and boogie styles, and improvisation, for intermediate to advanced players.

 

  1. Americana, Blues and Roots Music workshops: these are fun, informative 1-3 hour sessions for beginning to professional players and groups.   The emphasis is on learning and playing traditional songs, listening, improving ensemble skills, arrangement, and group improvisation. See Also: Evolution of the Blues Show

 

  1. Music theory and ear training seminars for Middle School and High School music students:  Fast moving 60-minute sessions that teach chords, keys and scales.  This is a time tested method that has brought a new level of musical understanding to hundreds of people in a simple and extremely effective way.  At the end of the session, students will be able to form all the major or natural minor scales, any major or minor triad, and any major, minor, dominant, half-diminished or diminished seventh chord, in any key.  Although aimed primarily at Middle and High School students, many teachers and other professionals have found this extremely beneficial.

 

   All these programs can be customized to meet specific community needs.
