Tag Archives: music specialist

Welcome to my new blog!

imageHi.  My name is Craig Newton. I am a professional musician, music specialist, and singer-songwriter.  One of my main activities is going to schools and libraries to present music programs where I perform on a wide variety of instruments.

For the past 10 years or so I have been doing artist-in-residence sessions at local elementary schools.  I have a program that brings singing, rhythm activities, and knowledge of instruments to the students.  In this blog I want to share resources and information to teachers, parents, musicians, and anyone who is involved in bringing music into our schools.  We need to me more proactive these days since there seems to be no budget for traditional music teachers.

Please help me with your posts.  I will be sharing song lyrics and chords to songs by grade level in my next posts.
