These boys wanted to sit closest to the action!

Dave Ruch is a dedicated and talented performer and teacher artist from Buffalo, NY. However, geography is a non-issue if you’d like to have Dave entertain and educate the students in your classroom. All that’s required is an Internet connection, laptop or other device that is hooked up to a projector/SmartBoard, and you’ll have yourself a live, interactive concert in your classroom or school.

At the end of October, which is Connected Educator Month, he will be hosting a FREE live-streaming concert from his home studio in Buffalo and is encouraging as many participants from across the globe as possible! As a teacher who has had the pleasure of inviting Dave into my Grade 4/5 classroom last year, I can guarantee you that this is not an experience to be missed. His timed responses are so spot-on that it took a lot of convincing for my students to believe that he could not actually SEE them. They were engaged from start to finish.

The largest online gathering of K-5 students will be held on Friday, October 30th at 1:15 EST.

For more information about this event, and/or to book Dave Ruch for your classroom/school, please visit his website or the digital Human Library, where he is one of our MeBooks.
