My son Logan LOVES your CD. He asks to turn it on every time we get in the car. It makes any trip a happy one for him. He is Two, but he does the “Clap your Feet” song!

“Our preschoolers and their families enjoyed singing and dancing with Rich at the Pre-Kindergarten Active Steps to Success (PASS) End-of-Year Celebration.  Even the youngest children were actively engaged and everyone could follow along with the words.  The pictures and text modeled visual literacy and Rich used prediction questions to invite the children into the messages in the songs. He asked questions afterward so we could go back to the text and look for answers.  Appropriate for kids and adults. We had a wonderful time!               Deb Endress – Office of Education – Freeport [email protected]

“Rich Rubietta brings an unusual depth of professional experience and sensitivity to his Character Education Music Assemblies. His music is universal and appropriate for all children and teachers.

Rich brings positive messages through a program that is rich in inspiration, musical instrumental skill, vocal virtuosity and contemporary issues. Being an educator who holds a Doctorate in Music from Northwestern University myself, I am especially appreciative of Rich’s gifts.

He is special, as he is a consummate performer who connects immediately with his audience. Children love his music! His programs run the spectrum of human emotions.

If you would like to bring a positive energy into your school (and who wouldn’t?), then I highly recommend bringing Illinois Arts Council ArtsTour artist, Rich Rubietta in for an Assembly. It will be an experience that will leave a lasting impact upon your students and staff.”
