Bob Zentz - Homemade Music
 
Can you remember a time when music was celebrated on the front porch with friends, neighbors, and the whole family?
Bob Zentz wants your students to experience that fun with homemade music. From guitars and tambourines to kazoos and
harmonicas, homemade music is how our grandparents might have enjoyed life before video games, TV, and computers. Students
will tap their feet and sing along to fun songs that celebrate life and folk music.

Curtis Blues - The Language of American Roots Music: Making Your Writing More Interesting
This interactive assembly invites students to draw inferences and conclusions from the lyrics of great American Blues songs. By
illustrating how the great songwriters made their writing compelling, students at each grade level learn how to make their own
writing richer in sensory detail and figurative language. This is all accomplished as multi-instrumentalist Curtis Blues keeps the
audience riveted by bringing fascinating instruments into the audience for a close look at roots music history.
