Performance Artist in Residency

Looking for a way to create an event to remember for your
students and their families? This two to three day residency can involve
either the entire student body or the vocal choirs only. Randy Peterson has
developed this program in which complete, easy to follow songs are sent
ahead a few weeks before Randy's visit. The music or classroom teacher
begins working on the songs with the students in advance. When Randy arrives
it all comes together in a magical performance in which each group of
singers gets to shine as well as take part in big, rousing all-school sing-alongs.
My 5th grade
choir and I had the pleasure of working with Randy Peterson in February
2009. I have to say it was the most positive experience the kids and I have
ever had. Randy sent us cdís with the music on it along the music and notes
on performance. I have never seen a professional performer more prepared and
tuned into kids than Randy. We had a great time and preparing the kids for
the concert was a breeze due to the information Randy sent us ahead of time.
I hardly had to do

"Dig Into Reading"
"Dig Into Reading" is the theme.
My show is perfect! Here's what I mean...
Through song we'll visit animal homes,
discover caves and dinosaur bones!
We'll search with pirates on their ships
and dig the sands of old Egypt!
Kids will experience, as we go
an amazing world that's down below.
As my backdrop, to please the eyes,
will be a treasure chest great in size!
It's filled with books the kids all know,
and some they might ask you to show.
You'll DIG Randy's show, it's smart and fun.
It'll be a hit with everyone!
Peterson's Artist in Residence Song Writing Program
An exciting and
fun way for Elementary School students to apply their writing skills!
The artist in residence program by Randy Peterson
involves students in a combination of creative writing and musical
performance. It begins by applying their writing skills to the creation of
song lyrics, and ends with the students performing the songs and recording a
school CD. The concepts of idea, organization, word choice, sentence
fluency, voice, and conventions are identified as they are applied and the
song takes shape. Students take part in the writing and revision of the
completed song. The songwriting program is meant to reinforce lessons the
students have learned and to give them a chance to apply their skills in a
new and exciting way. The residency is a fast-paced, inspiring, and fun
process that leaves the students proud of what they have accomplished.
Randy- I've been teaching for
25 years and this was the BEST PTA sponsored event ever! You were
fantastic! Thanks for making the week so special for the whole school!
