Roy Carmichael Elementary on March 18. The performance offered a chance for the kids to show what they learned from the Artists in the Schools program sponsored by the Plumas Arts Commission. Photo by Carolyn Shipp D,00fessional musician ,perfolnls with KillS Carolyn Shipp Staff Writer The C. Roy Carmichael Elementary School cafeteria resonated with the sound of little voices singing for their parents March 18. Under the direction of contracted musician Doug Sheehy, the children got to show off their new skills in music courtesy of the Artists in the Schools Program. Through the program, put on by the Plumas Arts Commission, schools all over the county have the opportunity to bring professional musicians to the classroom .and conduct hands-on workshops for the K-6 grades. Sheehy was one such musician, and his work with the kids made it possible for the school to host an end-of-session performance that displayed the children's hard work over the past few weeks. According to Sheehy, the first week of the program goes over the main criteria of music, such as rhythm, melody and harmony. During the second week, he covers music history using songs such as "Yankee Doodle" to depict the historical relevance of American songs. The last session looks at blues and jazz, and along the way he helps the kids make up many songs too. The kids learned a variety of tunes, and these were the songs they performed for their parents. The performance included "Puff the Magic Dragon," "Down by the Bay" and "Swinging on a Star" and each grade sang a different song. "I was immensely pleased with how they did," said Sheehy. "They really do love it." This is Sheehy's second year working with the schools and he said it has benefited him as well. "It's been a gift for me to be around the children. They're so real and loving," he said. According to CRC Principal Bruce Williams, it is also a gift for the children to have access to the program. "The kids loved it," he said. "You could see how much fun they had doing it. The Artists in the Schools Program is a strong instructional model and I hope it will continue for many years to come."
