Tracey journeys the globe to explore the ingenious ways in which people answer the universal need for self-expression through music. She highlights music of cultures on six continents using instruments fashioned from natural resources, household utensils, and all sorts of would-be trash, illustrating how music reflects the habitat as well as the culture from which it comes. Emphasizing the importance of reducing, reusing, and recycling, Tracey invites students to explore the potential for "musical repurposing" within the household recycle bin. PASSPORT TO THE AMAZING WORLD OF MUSIC is a highly interactive program whose destinations include Asia, Australia, North and South America, Polynesia, East and West Africa, the Caribbean, and Europe. Through easily-mastered dances children gain kinesthetic insight into highlighted cultures. Other interactive activities include call and response singing, map navigation, drum mnemonics, body percussion, student "guest appearances," and Q&A. Performed in solo and duo formats.
