New Interactive Assembly is available now!

I’m psyched to debut this new hybrid - a show and a workshop in one!

Singing, Reading & Writing Songs: an Interactive Assembly 

It's a show and it's a workshop! Silly Songster Alden Phelps plays guitar and sings his original children's songs, then leads students step by step as they design their own musical couplets in teams. Featuring magnetic words on easels, this hands-on experience is designed for an entire school grade to enjoy together. 

By physically manipulating magnetic words, roadblocks that inhibit participation (spelling, handwriting, etc.) are removed; students at different levels are able to engage meaningfully and achieve writing success in activities that build language skills. Guided exercises encourage rich vocabulary, reinforce parts of speech, and introduce rhyme and meter. Most importantly, it's a whole lot of fun! The assembly ends as students transform Alden's song into their own original creation. This Interactive Assembly is designed for up to 100 students/one full grade (grade 3, 4 or 5).

Length: 45 min.

Age: Grade 3-5

My Interactive Assembly was inspired by my pal Kevin Martin, a steel drum player, builder and educator. Pictured here on guitar with his band The Geckos. www.rockcreeksteeldrums.com

New Jersey here we come!

I’m now a performer with Young Audiences of New Jersey! Can’t wait to share the silliness with Garden State kids!
