Video Title:
Ella Jenkins' Workshop
Description:
For more information on Ella Jenkins, please visit: http://www.folkways.si.edu/explore_folkways/ella_jenkins.aspx Smithsonian Folkways recording artist Ella Jenkins, demonstrates how to teach rhythm by using the limberjack dancer in a 2009 workshop at the Old Town School of Folk Music. "You'll sing a song and I'll sing a song, and we'll sing a song together." That is what Ella Jenkins has done for more than 50 years in preschools, festivals, auditoriums, early childhood conferences, and concerts around the world. Ella was the first "folk" performer to teach fun, interactive music in schools and preschools, incorporating world cultures, the joy of music, and the basic skills every child needs. Literally thousands of musicians who now perform for children are indebted to Ella Jenkins for laying that groundwork. She has reached even more families through television appearances on Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, Sesame Street, and Barney.
