Liz’s award-winning songs and repertoire of classic story songs and nursery rhymes turn learning into musical fun! In an interactive program tailored to small groups, this seasoned children’s performer gets kids singing and moving with emphasis on basic literacy skills: rhyming, sounding out words, and understanding the elements of stories. Using shakers and other simple percussion instruments, students will play along with Liz and her guitar, while learning about syllables, letter sounds, rhymes and word families. With advance planning, Liz can customize the program to match requested curriculum content. Ask about a special concert on science themes!
