Break it Down!, is a highly interactive program for children that had its premiere at The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. Break it Down! delights in dissecting the pieces and parts of music and musical instruments, with the duo actually taking the instruments apart and reassembling them in front of the audience.
“Our kids were thoroughly entranced by Break it Down! A blend of classic and well known pieces, including a few measures of the theme from Star Wars, had our kids envisioning themselves being tomorrow’s drummer, or flutist, or musicians of all stripes.”
-Paul Swanson, Principal, Thomas Jefferson Elementary School, Falls Church, Virginia
