STEM: Rhythm, Rhyme, Riting...and STEM! (3rd-12th grade)

Do you want your students to remember the STEM concepts they've been studying? How about writing a song about them! Song writing spurs creativity, retelling skills and long-term memory. Using a six-step method, Aaron teaches students to write lyrics to a common melody or a completely new melody, incorporating vocabulary from your STEM subject or topic.

Artist

Aaron Fowler

Aaron Fowler draws from 12 years as a public school teacher working at both the elementary and middle school level and more than a decade as a songwriter and educational consultant.

Aaron also performs for Arts Partners in the duos “Pete and Woody” and “Adventures in Story and Song” and is a Kansas Wolf Trap and Baby Artsplay artist.

 

Thank you very much for working with our students this year. As a talented and very approachable adult, you made a positive and lasting impression. You adapted lessons quickly to match learning and emotional abilities. Lessons were fun and full of lighthearted, no pressure, laughter and direction. The kids have left this year with a sense of “I CAN.”

D. Miner, Sowers Alternative High School, Wichita

We are repeat customers and hope to always be. Songs are catchy and entertaining. I connect with the artist and want to hang out on the porch and jam all summer long. The program provides a mix of entertainment and learning. The hope is that more information is retained because it is presented in such a terrific way. Again the artist is amazing at spontaneously changing during the performance and interacting closely with a small group audience.
