The Science of Sound
This fun and interactive 45 minute show has been a crowd pleaser since 2007. Mr. Tom performs original songs that teach the four main learning objectives:
HOW SOUND GETS MADE
THE 5 FAMILIES OF INSTRUMENTS
HOW SOUND MOVES
HOW WE PERCEIVE SOUND
Guitar, voice, hand percussion, trumpet, flute, and concertina are used to demonstrate how even the most unique sounds share the same science.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
This high energy 45 minute show has been performed for thousands of school children since 2010. Conservation themes are taught through original songs performed by Mr. Tom from Tom's Fun Band.
Audiences will cheer, clap, and chant while learning the keys to conserving our natural resources. Found objects will be used by audience volunteers to create music that ties art, history and recycling together in an exciting way.
As a decedent of Stephen F Austin's "Old 300," Mr. Tom puts conservation and homemade instruments in a historical perspective that illustrates the wisdom of our forefathers and the joy of making art out of everything we encounter.
