Description:

A Busboys and Poets in-house series! Rise + Rhyme is a weekly morning storytelling and performance series for children ages 5 and under, stay-at-home parents, and early rising families of all kinds.

Today's featured performer:

Marsha Goodman-Wood,  a D C-based singer/songwriter and music teacher. Marsha is known for getting kids singing and dancing at her shows, setting little toes to tapping with original melodies that mix generous doses of science and positive social messages into songs that are just plain fun. Her quirky, smart compositions take on topics from astronomy (answering the age-old question "Why Can't You Dance on Jupiter?") to nonconformity ("Sheep Don't Wear Shoes") to biology ("The Penguin Song"). A former cognitive neuroscientist, Marsha includes fun facts and lessons in her songs! With tunes and stories that please children and grownups alike, Marsha takes inspiration for her lyrics straight from the creative kids she's raising and teaching.

A mother of three, she brings to her performances a parent's eye for connecting with audiences, along with a music teacher's sensibility for what works to move kids of all ages.

Open to all with a $5 suggested donation for the performer. Rise + Rhyme is held every Monday morning at 9:30 AM at Busboys and Poets in Hyattsville.
