What’s The Story?  Music.  

Whenever I add music to a storytelling program, people become even more engaged.  Sometimes I play the guitar, sing and/or add percussion. Music encourages participation and often leads to unforgettable moments.  I’ll always remember while telling an African folktale to fourth graders (with the energetic beat of a drum), the children spontaneously burst into a conga line!  We danced around that room at least three times.   And it was the boys, at first reluctant to join in, who began the dance.
