Bring SteveSongs on a Virtual Visit to Your Classroom
Sometimes you teach your students a concept a million times, and they just don’t get it. Then someone else tells them the same thing, and it finally clicks. It’s not because you’re a bad teacher. It’s just that once you’ve laid the foundation, a new perspective, a new approach, and a new voice can trigger deep understanding. That’s what happens when teachers bring PBS Kids celebrity SteveSongs into the classroom. It’s kind of like sprinkling fairy dust and seeing kids fly. So whether you’re an elementary music teacher or an elementary teacher who loves integrating music in your classroom, you can bring SteveSongs on a virtual visit to your classroom by joining our focus group!

The 2021 Spring Virtual Class Visit
For our 2021 elementary music focus group, teachers have requested pre-recorded sessions. So you can bring Steve into your classroom with two pre-recorded videos: a 30-minute sing along for students grades K-2 and a 20-minute song writing session video for students grades 3-5. Steve will also record a personalized shout out to teachers and students. It’s going to be the experience of a lifetime that you and your students won’t want to miss!
