Folk, Fun and Fairytales, a Musical Sing-Along Journey

Folk, Fun and Fairytales, a Musical Sing-Along Journey

Mery Tomsick

This program is an introduction to folk music and folk musicians, including audience participation and sing-alongs to folk music and fairy tales.  Children will be introduced to the guitar, including the parts of the instrument and how it can be played (strumming versus finger picking).  Children will hear stories with musical components (piano/forte) and will sing and use hand signals to reinforce lyrics and melodies.  Songs and stories will feature fantasy creatures, such as dragons and unicorns and a musical trip on a bear hunt.
