What to Expect


In an assembly or classroom, your students will be introduced to:

  • shanties, or, work songs aboard ship
  • forebitters-the songs sailors sang to pass the time
  • poetry
  • work effort, the movement used in a shantey
  • how simple machines work, especially aboard a sailing vessel
  • instrumental music
  • ballads
  • language of the sea, and, well…
  • FUN!

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.


Smooth sailing to you and your school!!
