The Lunch, Learn and Play program is a summer camp located in beautiful Salem, New York. I had the pleasure of taking a trip up there for the Reading, Writing and Rhyming Tour, and I certainly wasn't disappointed by the outcome!
This is the time that the Hillside Summer Camp in Niskayuna reserved for "Mismatch Day", where happy campers adorn themselves with- you guessed it- clothes that don't go together. (Wow, a group after my own heart!)
I was at the Bethlehem YMCA for the Reading, Writing and Rhyming Tour, brought to you by….(insert sponsor's name here - we don't have one right now -hint hint) . Anyway, this was a great chance to meet a bunch of real "Champs"
Many have asked this question - "Richie, what is the process you use to write a song with young kids?". I'm glad you asked! That's why we've created this short video of a typical day behind the scenes..
Once again I had a memorable experience with Mrs. Toher's class at Yates School in Schenectady. They were ready for summer. So was their Principal, Mr. Flanders, by the way. Hear the results and see photos below
Well, it think it's safe to say we are batting a thousand when we work together at Schoharie Elementary School. I always seem to walk away with a hit song on my recording device, conceived and written by some very creative elementary students. That's MY kind of school!!
I've been yelled at by several people close to me for not mentioning this, but I didn't want to come off as "patting myself on the back." I am really proud of it, and humbled by it, so I guess it's time. Please excuse me for bragging….
