    Rockin' and Reading


Perfect for Family Reading Nights! Rockin' and Reading is Leonardo's literacy themed concert where little rockers become big readers! The ability to read, write and communicate is the recipe for success, and music is a universal ingredient. Audiences will spell out the vowels with their bodies to the song "AEIOU" (think YMCA), learn a bit of sign language as they celebrate a "Snow Day", and finish writing a song about a trip to "Hawaii" using basic literary devices. Performing on his electric guitar, banjo and ukulele, the concert is an interactive musical experience that entertains, educates, and motivates with movement and song!

School Reviews

"A mom came up to me and asked what the name of our bully band was, she said her daughter had come home last week
and told her she was being bullied...because the band told her to tell."


" ... Sent home a message of teamwork and anti-bullying. Teachers were rocking in their seats and kids were singing the songs long after the band left.
I had so many teachers ask us to bring it back next year. What a wonderful way to kick off the year, thanks Leonardo"
