Ken Lonnquist

2009/10 Songwriter Program

Through the generosity of 2009/10 Board of Education Commissioner, Mr. and Mrs. Tim Cullen, Madison Elementary students had a unique musical experience! Madison singer and songwriter, Ken Lonnquist visited Madison’s students in May. After an introductory assembly, he worked with students from each grade to create songs that reflect information they have studied this year. The students had a wonderful time working with Mr. Lonnquist and learning the collaborative process of creating words and music to express themselves in a fun, exciting and imaginative way. When they finished working on their lyrics, Mr. Lonnquist came back to the school and performed the songs they had created together. Mr. Lonnquist and the students of Madison Elementary School would like to share those songs with you. You can see more information about Mr. Lonnquist on his website at www.kenland.com
