[F] Fiddler. Playing on a violin that she built herself, Michelle uses her background of hot Old-time and Cajun music to share older American folk traditions. Since her teens, she has immersed herself in fiddle & dance styles from New England to Louisiana. Combining music, dance and singing games, Michelle will create a program that integrates folk arts into your curriculum. Guitar, banjo and rhythm instruments can be included. Available for all ages and abilities. Marimba Magic. In this participatory workshop, Michelle uses fabulous-sounding xylophones; the gentle, yet rich tones remind one of windchimes, only the players are creating the music! The instruments, ranging from soprano to bass are especially designed with removable wood or metal bars. The goal is to give everyone, including those with no music background, a chance to make music that sounds great in a relaxed informal setting, while building self-esteeem. Available for all ages and abilities. (See also Dance listing)
