When you book a "Musical Journey of Kentucky" program, you will find the 

Teachers Study Guide to Musical Journey of Kentucky very helpful.


Prepare your students prior to the performance, and follow up after the performance for a thorough understanding of the program.

"Listen, Create, Compose, and Evaluate"

As an artist in residence, Lorinda Jones and Cheyenne Mize can turn your classroom into a space of creativity based on the stories, songs, and dances of the Appalachian tunes of Kentucky and beyond.  As a great follow-up to the Musical Journey of Kentucky, book artists that have had experience in creating the art themselves, and sharing that creative ability with the students with small groups, or individual classrooms.

Lorinda has also developed a successful approach to teaching children the basics of playing the mountain dulcimer and her publication,

"The Mountain Dulcimer: A Design for Success"

is very popular to guide a teacher, or music therapist incorporating playing and singing with the dulcimer.
