Through dynamic performance, demonstration, and audience participation, RiverJack provides an introduction to the processes of looping, songwriting, and recording, and leaves participants with a finished product that they are proud to call their own. RiverJack uses “loop” (live recording) technology to achieve a full band sound by layering percussion, bass, acoustic guitars, harmonica,trumpet and vocals. During a 60- to 75-minute session, participants will explore the craft of songwriting by writing and recording a song that is uniquely their own, based on a theme or curriculum-related topic. They will work cooperatively to form a musical composition by: brainstorming ideas, writing lyrics, composing a melody, and gaining personal experience with the creative process. The song is then rehearsed and recorded, and the library will receive a CD/mp3 containing the participants’ song.

He brings this historically accurate jester character into school auditoriums. An easy to use study guide ties into Language Arts and Social studies.
