What makes us different?

Combining historical music, onstage costume transformations, and audience participation, our multi-sensory performance experiences bring American heritage to life through music in a way that is unlike anything audiences have ever seen before.

Our full-service approach provides teachers with music and costume ideas in advance to help students be

fully participating audience members

We reinforce official
academic standards

Programs reinforce History/Social Studies, Music, and English/Language Arts Academic Standards.

We have developed these programs alongside seasoned educators, using the education standard codes as a direct guideline.

We support SEL & character building

Our programs feature songs about American heroines and heroes from throughout our nation's history.
 
Students learn that the heroic qualities of these Americans are still important today–and that these qualities live inside of each one of us.

We foster content retention and independent learning

All of our programs are accompanied by a substantial set of cross-disciplinary & SEL supplemental materials.
 
Our unique 'combination method' helps students retain important social studies content, and uses stories of historical figures as examples of SEL values.

On-stage performing opportunity for students!

Artists work with a group or class of students for the week leading up to a school performance.

These students engage in in-depth discussion of the program content and learn the song choruses they will perform for their peers from on stage. 

Students have the option to present narrative  content within the program, practicing public speaking and poise.

Students write their own song and perform it as the grand finale of the school performance.
