Live from New York, it’s Dave Ruch!

Yesterday, students at St. Paul School, as well as other schools in Timmins, across Canada and the U.S., had the opportunity to participate in a free, live and very interactive concert by Dave Ruch.  Dave is a teaching artist who captivates audiences with his musicality, personality and impeccable timing: “Show me those teeth!  Beautiful – especially you in the red shirt!” Cut to student in red shirt, now smiling profusely, his/her friends gasping and trying to figure out how he knew?!  😀  The concert featured instruments such as the mandolin and the jaw harp, as he took the students around the world, teaching them verses of songs in different languages (Nigerian, Russian, Japanese, Italian…), and definitely got them out of their seats, dancing and singing along.  He even took questions after his 45-minute concert via email.  If you are looking to add an interactive experience to your Music program, look no further.  Thanks Dave!  His official website is: http://www.daveruch.com/
As well, teachers can find him on the digital Human Library site – and don’t forget to register for even more exciting virtual field trip opportunities for your students!
