Welcome to the home of Billy and the Kidd
A typical one hour show consists of both education and entertainment. Every tune has a message, and they try to leave the students with not only a sense of being entertained, but with a new awareness of curriculum based goals. The show is interactive and participation is not only encouraged, but it is part of the experience.
The show has been designed as a support for the primary and junior arts curriculum, including character education. Learning material is supplied to teachers, in the form of a teacher activity package.
The Kidd has played music professionally for more than 30 years and also teaches guitar, bass, banjo, mandolin and most anything with strings and frets. He has a degree in computer sciences and has been an I.T. Manager in a corporate setting, but the lure of musical endeavours has always drawn him back to live performance
Billy began his professional performance career in the 1970's. He is a singer/songwriter who plays piano. He is a retired educator who taught every level from K-12 during a 30 year career. His classroom management and communication skills contribute to the creation of an effective learning experience.
Put on some comfy shoes and get ready for a fun-filled show.
