Concerts and School Programs
A Zucchini Brothers family concert is typically 45 to 50 minutes
long and is appropriate for a number of settings: indoor
or outdoor venues, libraries, theatres, festivals,
family shows, schools, etc... The show is both educational
and a lot of fun! Moms, dads, kids, teenagers, grandparents,
dogs and cats...there's something for everyone at a
"Zucchini" concert (did we leave anyone out?)
The Zucchini Brothers play at hundreds of elementary
schools throughout the Country....and for good reason:
They are certified teachers themselves; They've written
music to go along with the K-6th grade curriculum; And
most importantly a day with The Zucchini Brothers is
a good time for all-full of fun, humor and lots of participation!
The focus is on health, self-esteem, and the environment.
Brothers believe that if you take care of yourself (health),
and feel good
about yourself (self-esteem), you'll take better care
of the world around
you (your environment).
Assemblies are designed for specific elementary school
age groups: one for
the K-2nd grades, and another program with different
music for 3rd-5th/6th
grades. The assembly is typically 45-50 minutes with
an emphasis on audience
participation-lots of fun, singing and learning!
Programs can also be tailored to fit a specific topic
or theme your school
is concentrating on (i.e. the PARP program, respect,

During a classroom session lasting approximately an hour,
students explore the craft of songwriting by writing and
recording a song that is uniquely their own, based on a theme
or curriculum-related topic.
Coached by Jack and Steve Zucchini (with guitar
and keyboard), students work cooperatively to create a musical
composition by brainstorming ideas, writing lyrics, and
composing a melody. The outcome is a new song and personal
experience with the creative process! The piece is then rehearsed
by the class and recorded to a tape which the school gets to keep!
