BarlowSongs: They Teach!
Everybody loves songs – especially the sing-along kind! But BarlowSongs are special, because they go one step further: They teach! Call on Barlow Songs for your next music assembly/small group program in NY and beyond.
Award-winning teacher and nationally published author Bob Barlow now offers participatory K-8 school assemblies and library programs on a wide range of topics and skills – each one carefully crafted to leverage the research-backed power of music.
Music And Memory: Sing Your Way to School Success!
In Bob’s MUSIC AND MEMORY program, the fun begins with a medley of educational sing-alongs. Next, students enjoy “mnemonic raps” designed to accelerate learning. After that comes a rhythm and rhyme mini-workshop and a how-to on writing unforgettable “study songs.” The program culminates with a never-before-heard song written and performed by the students – with a little help from Bob!

School Song Spectacular: Let’s Write YOUR School’s Anthem Together!
Does your school have a school song? If not, Bob Barlow will be happy to help your students write one! His SCHOOL SONG SPECTACULAR program guides students through the songwriting process and encourages them to brainstorm ideas and images that belong in a song about their school. A rhythm-and-rhyme mini-workshop primes kids to craft verses that are fun to sing and a pleasure to hear. By the end of the program, your school will have a song, complete with two verses and a chorus! (For a small additional fee, Bob will create a “learning copy” of the song for use in teaching the song to students and others not in attendance. Note also that this program is available in the form of all-day or weeklong residencies. Call for details.)

Poems, Songs And Sing-Alongs: Words + Music = Learning Fun for Everyone!
As its name implies, this program covers all the bases: Writing image-rich, rhyming poems, turning them into songs and having a great time singing them! Students learn the basics of songwriting and poetry while expanding their understanding of similes and metaphors, imagery, hyperbole, alliteration, onomatopoeia and other literary techniques. Although the focus is on fun, the learning is lasting!
