Building Bridges is a gift for any classroom. Building Bridges is not just a field trip. It is a climate and academic enhancer.
The curriculum that accompany all the songs allow for teaching in other academic areas other than music. The curriculum identifies the area in the state standards and common core that these songs can support in the learning process. It is a win, win situation. Schools are able to get an academic and climate program with a culminating concert…for free.

Please let Mr. Chapin know our classes thoroughly enjoyed his concert, sing his songs all day and they enjoyed learning the deeper meaning of the lyrics in his music. He is an amazing performer for children. Thank you!

We had an excellent discussion about wanting to be like Bruno (Song: Don’t Play With Bruno!) who was able to follow the Golden Rule even though the girls did not treat him nicely.

Social skills and communication are especially challenging for children living within the autism spectrum, I believe that music can help all children learn.
Our town really is a Salad Bowl.
~ MAYOR JOHN LEWIS, TOWN OF GILBERT, BUILDING BRIDGES AMBASSADOR
The learning experience is so very valuable. Using music and building rapport with fun songs is a great way to figure out how we manage ourselves in this crazy world of ours.
