Charles Barr Concerts for Head Start

“The children’s eyes always light up when you come. They talk about it for days after. Thank you for all you do.”

Texas Winds believes music teaches discipline, problem solving, working with others, and self-expression. As a partner with Head Start, Texas Winds has a unique opportunity to contribute to the early learning environment of preschool children by stimulating their imagination, intellectual curiosity and self-esteem.

As the only arts component of the Head Start curriculum, our MEET THE INSTRUMENTS series enriches the experience of children in their first formal educational setting.

The Ugly Duckling – Cello & Piano
The Little Engine That Could – Percussion
The City Mouse and the Country Mouse –Oboe & English Horn
Duke Ellington & Frog and Toad – Trombone & Double Bass
Hansel and Gretel – Flute, Oboe & French Horn
