Rhymes, Rhythm, and Rock

This program is specifically designed for younger students to learn about the most basic concepts of music. Melody, rhythm, singing, and playing percussion instruments are the focus here, as the artist uses a wide range of nursery rhymes and classic Louisiana songs to help encourage the children to understand how to make music. Participation is encouraged with the use of percussion, clapping, and singing in a call and response fashion.
