Getting Kids Fired Up On Bluegrass!

Image634856414500121425Valerie Smith and Liberty Pike shared this demo video – a snapshot of what the band does for their Bluegrass In The Schools Program. Val told us that she gets as much involved as the individual school desires including some individual classroom attention. Sometimes she’ll make herself and the band available for local school districts in coordination with her festival appearances around the country which also results in the festivals ability to apply for and receive various grant monies to help defray the festival costs.   CLICK READ MORE TO WATCH VIDEO!

 

   Valerie is a former Elementary and Junior High Music Teacher. She has a Master’s Degree in Education.

She’s embodied in a collaboration with the International Bluegrass Music Museum that’s taken her and her group into dozens of elementary and secondary classrooms, and shaped her decision to make bluegrass the centerpiece of her CD, “Blame It On The Bluegrass” released last year —an innovative “Six Pack” short album of original songs that keeps up with the latest in music marketing.
