its career, Tamarack has made a point of taking its music into the classroom,
to students at all grade levels from kindergarten to university. We have
tried to demonstrate that education can beentertaining, that entertainment
can be educational, and that music canprovide a direct link between many
areas of study and 'the real world'.
Our classroom performances - at whatever grade level - are lively, casual,and interactive. They are designed to provide information, stimulatediscussion, and spark interest among students.
Tamarack has run this concert/workshop for dozens of schools in eastern and northern Ontario, and Manitoba, as well as England and Scotland and several schools in the United States.
In addition, Tamarack, in partnership with Tree Canada, can provide extensive teachers' aids, including study guides, CDs, activity and resource books, and resource personnel from Tree Canada's technical advisory staff. Tree Canada is always happy to work with schools across Canada in Schoolground Greening projects.
We have included two songs from the Tree CD in Real Audio format. Have a listen.
