Spontaneous “Around the Piano!”

These awesome young people came and listened to me sing for a while.  They were super kind.  They agreed to sing a song for me and then asked if they could sing with me, so I taught them “What I Ask of Myself” right there on the spot.  What a nice surprise!

Attention Educators: Consider adding Around the Piano as a tool for your 2017/18 tool kit

Around the Piano is a resource for teachers and team leaders. It’s about gathering a group of young people into an inviting space to sing and create while exploring and developing their own beliefs and goals about good character. There is something about singing with a group that puts us in a team spirited mind set. When we are creating sound together, we share a powerful personal connection.  If we add to that connect the deliberate language of integrity and character, we are taking advantage of the perfect setting.

Gathering your group together to talk and write about character is amazing, but singing the results of that creation is huge, and the songs, once learned, owned and sung repeatedly will not be easily forgotten.

Consider hosting an ATP workshop/training for your school or district!




Music is the perfect ice-breaker
