Music is one of the longest-lived pursuits of human beings. From the earliest musical instrument discovered (a flute made from the bone of a bird 35000 years ago) to jazz and rock and pop, it’s an incredible story of our inventiveness. It’s fascinated me for almost as long as I’ve been a performer. It’s what I did at university.
Today, I present entertaining programs for libraries, schools, organizations and communities about the fun and fascinating history of music. My programs involve lecture, visuals, and musical & instrument demonstrations.
Everyone loves music, and it’s my experience that the stories behind the songs make the music come alive even more!
