Award-winning children’s musician comes to Jackson

(Jackson, Wyo.) - Get ready to sing, clap, dance and even sneeze along during this visit by award-winning musician and author Jim Gill. Rather than performing for children and parents, Gill leads them to sing and play together. Gill is a musician and author with unique credentials. He completed graduate studies in child development at the Erikson Institute of Chicago, with a special emphasis on the study of play. Gill’s education gives him a distinctive approach to concerts, because his studies have convinced him that family play is more important to young children than music alone, whether the music is classical, folk or rock and roll. Thus, Gill creates each of recordings and books as an opportunity for playful interactions between a child and a caring adult.
