Dear Homeschool provider!
I know you’re busy, so I’ll be brief. 
Please allow me to introduce myself. I am James Schattauer, better known as the children’s performer “Mister Jim.”
For over 3 decades, I’ve been helping educational professionals and parents, like yourself, enhance students’ motor skills, self-expression, confidence, play and engagement skills through music, while providing a fun, morale-boosting environment for all.
My wife and I just moved to beautiful Prescott, Arizona and we love it!  We are originally from the Midwest and Prescott feels like home.
Because I’m establishing myself in Arizona, I’m offering a FREE live mini concert as a way for you to get to know my profession as a songster for young children and families. It demonstrates how I use fun and uplifting music to engage, inspire and motivate people of all ages.
Here are a couple of videos on my Mister Jim YouTube channel so you can see for yourself how the music moves the kids.
The FREE live mini concert can be done at your home, potluck or gathering, any time at your convenience.  It will last approximately 20 minutes.
You can schedule your free live mini concert or find out more about my services in one of three ways: 
1. Contact me on my website: James Schattauer

2. Email me at: jamesfullheart@yahoo.com
3. Call or text at: 651-402-1288
When we connect, we can also discuss other music enrichment programming needs you might have, or some great musical options to offer at your location.
With Smiles,
Mister Jim

P.S.  I can also be a regular monthly visitor, do annual full “Mister Jim” concerts, inservice for your site and conference keynotes.
But first, let’s get your FREE live mini concert scheduled so we can get to know each other!

Playwriting Class

Playwriting is an exciting and engaging way to learn about performing arts and scriptwriting. To be successful, you need to know where ideas for plays come from, the lingo writers speak, how to create fully dimensional characters, how to write dialogue, where to start your play, how to develop your storyline and reach the story’s climax, and how to bring your play to a satisfying conclusion.

If you want to explore script writing and learn script writing this class is for you. The skills you learn in this class will help you write better stories, better dialogue and be useful in many other writing areas. This class is not just for writers, anyone with an interest in any aspect of performing will benefit from learning about the aspects of writing and storytelling techniques that will be presented. An experienced team of writers, directors, actors and designers, from Prescott Center for the Arts, will
teach this class. The team has years of experience working with elementary and secondary students. The goal of the class will be to guide students through the process of writing, revising and producing their work. Students will be encouraged to submit their plays for Prescott Center for the Arts Young Playwrights Festival. They will also learn about additional opportunities to submit their work for scholarships or other playwriting competitions. In the spring, a special festival production opportunity will be given to all writers who wish to take their play to the next step of performance.

This course will meet once a week for 2 hours for a total of twelve weeks. Additional work out of class will be encouraged and required for students to achieve the best results with their writing. (Students should plan to spend an average of 2 hours per week outside of class working on assignments and their play script.)

Learning Outcomes:
Students will understand the structure of a story and the structure of a theatrical script.
Students will learn how to fully develop a character for a play or story.
Students will learn to write dialogue that helps convey and move a story forward.
Students will write and revise a 10-minute script that will not exceed 10 pages.
Students will learn to submit writing for competitive opportunities.
Students, who desire, will participate in the process of bringing their writing to life for a showcase performance.

Class Location: Prescott Center for the Arts StageToo
Time: Mondays from 1:00 to 3:00pm
Class duration: 12 weeks beginning on Jan. 8, 2018
