$5 per student with a minimum of $500 per show Travel/accom/road toll fees may apply in some locations
In this workshop I teach the students a song about family, tell stories from my family that are contained in the song, talk about how to find you family story from parents and grandparents, with students write verses for their particular family, with the whole class write a verse about their local district, talk about their local stories and about how to find the local story, and at the end we record all we’ve written. I leave behind the recording and notes and templates for further work.
Home is with my family
We can live on top of a mountain
We can live along the sea
Home is with my family.
And I’m proud of my home, for me it is the best
It’s where my friends and family work and play and rest
From early morning sunrise till the stars are shining bright
I’m proud of my home, for me it is alright.
