We always enjoy our concerts with Jim Gill! He is so much fun. Our last concert with Jim Gill was June 2019. Everyone sang along with the songs and danced to his songs. The Sneezing Song was a favorite!
Jim Gill has a unique approach to his concerts for young children and families. This is because his graduate studies in child development have convinced him that family play is more important to young children than music alone…whether the music is classical, folk, or rock and roll.
Each of Jim’s concerts is an active sing-along and clap-along. He bangs out energetic rhythms on his banjo while everyone claps, jumps, dances and even sneezes along. The concert is filled, of course, with songs and stories from Jim’s award-winning recordings and books for young children.
Jim’s artistry, however, is beyond the music. Jim’s true art is to create a joyful musical experience for children an adults – parents, grandparents, and caregivers – together.
Every concert becomes part of Jim’s ongoing Family Room Tour…where Jim’s music play creates a family room in each concert hall, library or school auditorium he visits.
