The Land of Colors

DSC07164.jpg

A musical story about a unicorn who lives in silver but dreams in color, and then one day sets out on an adventure to find the Land of Colors. On her way, she encounters musical instruments playing in the wilderness, they seem to have a wonky note and need help!

JenUwin interacts with the instrument, learning how sound is made, until she discovers the culprit of the wonky note - a colored scarf! When JenUwin removes the scarf, the instruments can play with no wonky note and JenUwin can see a new color! Adding the colored scarf to her silver mane, she continues through the forest and meeting each instrument and color of the rainbow.

“The Land of Colors” gives young students the opportunity to learn about individual orchestral instruments in detail, and hear several different sounds from each instrument. It also teaches them important lessons about how to be helpful and open to new discoveries.

The most positive aspect was the children’s response, bar none. To see the gaiety and delight of so many kids, girls and boys, younger and older, moving their bodies and responding enthusiastically to the program was terrific. Your energy and connection with the audience was spot on.

Reviews

JenUwin Playtime’s musical programs are simply the most entertaining and educational I have ever presented. As the Director of Education for Britt Music & Arts Festival, it is my job to make sure our offerings include performances that will be engaging as well as educational. “The Land of Colors” gives young students the opportunity to learn about individual orchestral instruments in detail, and hear several different sounds from each instrument. It also teaches them important lessons about how to be helpful and open to new discoveries. “The Orchestral Outcast” is a wonderful illustration of how the traditional orchestra is structured, and how certain instruments, like the saxophone, might not be considered ‘orchestral’. Audiences not only learn about the history and technical ability of the saxophone, but they also learn that it can be a challenge to be accepted if you are viewed as different. The Saxophonic Spectacular” program gives JenUwin an opportunity to demonstrate her expertise on the saxophone, the amazing flexibility of the instrument and the array of composers who wrote music in different genres for it. Included in the program are songs from popular animated films and the young audiences spontaneously sing along as soon as they hear the familiar melodies. This program has become very popular among the teachers and students alike. JenUwin Playtime really involves the audience in her adventures, which keeps them engaged and learning throughout the presentation. The students learn about music and much more. I highly recommend these programs.

Jenuwin is an absolute delight. She brings such a playful presence to the classroom with her purple saxophone, wonderful children’s tunes and floor piano. Outside she fills the air with her gigantic bubbles, charming the kids into active play. Jenuwin is responsive to the children’s interests and lead. I especially loved it when she allowed the children to put their hands inside the end of the saxophone while she played so they could feel the vibrations. The looks on the children’s faces were priceless as they discovered such an elemental part of music and sound! Jenuwin is a true unicorn. A magical creature who brings joy to children wherever she goes. I am so grateful whenever she visits the children at the Family Nurturing Center.
