9:40-10:35 AM Turtles, Pennies and Boxes - Songs by Malvina Reynolds
Malvina Reynolds (August 23, 1900 – March 17, 1978) was a songwriter and political activist, writing both children’s music and songs of political protest, environmentalism, and feminism. She was a lifelong friend of Pete Seeger and they collaborated often. We will go over some old favorites as well as exploring some of her lesser known songs. All instruments and voices welcome!

1:15-2:15 PM Percussion Instruments
Baffled by how to play the tambourine or shaker? Confused by the clavés? Wanting to know more about playing hand drums? Kristin is ready to share some of her knowledge on techniques and rhythms when it comes to playing small percussion “toys” which she acquired as a percussion major. We will play along with some fun folk/ rock/ Latin songs so that we become more comfortable with it all.
