Guess who is coming to my school(s) next week? GREG PERCY!!! I am so excited, I can’t even tell you. It’s been one of my “teacher bucket list” items to have Greg Percy come perform for my students and he is doing is spring tour this year in a few of the schools in our district. My colleagues and are pumped because he is “kind of a big deal.” I also may be known to belt out his songs (which get stuck in my head) to my husband and daughter, both who give me a strange look. What can I say…
If you don’t know who Greg Percy is, you should. He is an art teacher (still teaching, by the way) who is also a musician. Greg makes learning art fun, by putting art concepts into catchy songs for kids. His CD’s are called “Songs in the Key of Art” and there are 5 volumes available. We listen to him all the time in the art room. His songs have helped my students learn the primary and secondary colors, understand symmetry and the order of the rainbow. Music in the art room also can help your students to work quietly, feel connected to what they are doing, and use other parts of their brain to learn artistic concepts.
What’s even better? He’s agreed to do an interview with me for AOE Readers.
