Encouraging kids to sing loud, jump high, and dream big, Roger Day’s performance encourages creativity, participation, and positive self-concept. The theme underlying the music’s lively verbal gymnastics and colorful imagery is that of aspiration. Roger urges kids to reach their potential by using body and brain, mind and muscle. His intent is to empower children to follow their dreams and make a positive impact on the world. Roger performs music from his CD “Dream Big!”, which won a Parent’s Choice Gold award; the title song was popular on Radio Disney and the song “I like Yaks” went to number 1 on XM Radio Kids Place Live. Key concepts include creative writing, musical arts, and inspiration.
Both in-person and virtual (live and pre-recorded) options are available for this program.
Roger Day believes in the power of imagination as the original – and still undefeated superpower. Throughout his 25-year career as a visiting artist and educator, that has been his north star when working with students and teachers alike. It informs his approach to both songwriting and presenting, whether that presentation occurs in a large assembly with hundreds of students, or a single classroom during a writing workshop. Roger has been writing and performing smart, original, interactive, high-energy children’s music for over 15 years. His clever lyrics & upbeat rhythms are infused with wry & silly observations about the world around us, and fun word play that tickles kids’ funny bones & moves them to think. An approved Dove Family Foundation artist & multiple Parents’ Choice Gold Award winner, his infectiously fun concerts are action-filled adventures exercising kids’ minds AND muscle, body AND brain; inspiring them to discover their own talents and to give flight to their imaginations. Roger is a former camp counselor and magna cum laude graduate of Washington & Lee University touring over 100 shows/year entertaining & educating students across the US.
