Jim Gill in Concert
Jim Gill’s Family Room Tour
In his Family Room Tour concerts, Jim Gill bangs out energetic rhythms on his banjo while everyone sings, claps, jumps, dances, and even sneezes along. Jim creates a joyful atmosphere that encourages children and parents to play and enjoy each other.
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.
The concert is filled, of course, with songs from Jim’s award-winning recordings for young children. Jim’s true art, however, is beyond the music. Jim’s true art is to create a joyful musical experience for children and parents together.
Concerts also become joyous family reading experiences as parents and children read and sing along with presentations of Jim’s picture books.
