If you have adult family members who want to go – the POPS group usually performs the same exact concert to the public the Sunday before the Thursday that we go. That Sunday concert is NOT free.

***If you have a small child that can sit on your lap, let me know so that I do not include them in our total counts.

In your email, message or post to me please indicate the total number in your family that are going, e.g., 1 adult, 1 child on my lap and 2 kids, etc.

Cheers,

Maggie

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!
