Childrens Program

20 years in Philadelphia public schools, sponsored by the Philadelphia Folk
Song Society.

Always a hit in schools!

Participation– plus the sounds and international roots of five folk instruments.

Andrew Roblin’s top-rated program for school children is both educational and entertaining. He talks with the children about how instruments from Africa, Europe, Asia and the Middle East came to America. They learn:

  • Where each instrument comes from
  • How each is used in American folk music
  • Each instrument’s technique and sound
  • Number and organization of strings on each
  • Names of familiar related instruments
  • Call-and-response singing
  • How to yodel
  • The Philadelphia Mummers’ strut
  • Geography, history and tolerance

“The best in multicultural music. Polished, exciting & entertaining!”

– Lisa C. Villani, Spring Garden Elementary

“Wonderful! The children loved grunting, clapping, singing, yodeling and shouting whoopee! Many commented on your “really neat” instruments. I recommend you highly”

Linda Wentzel, Spring City Library

“Enjoyable, entertaining and informative. Thorough discussion of the instruments”
