Many people have come to our school, but very few have measured up to such high standards. For 120 fifth- and sixth-grade students to sit still on the floor and be completely involved in your program for over an hour is a real tribute to you and your ability.

I just wish more children could see your presentation. You have a very rare gift and I certainly hope others will be able to benefit from it in the future.

Children seem to naturally respond to his charismatic manner and upbeat sense of humor. -Community Spirit Magazine  



I can't find words good enough to describe what you do with and for children. You are to me mostly a poet who creates a rippling effect with words. Your songs have a poignancy and depth I don't find in most children's songs. Your songs appeal to a wide range of ages, enticing the very little ones, while satisfying the oldest in our school as well. 

You are an incredible performer, but also a real teacher, one who knows when to be silly, when to be serious. How to control a group, sustain a relationship, organize an event, use time effectively. And you know how to use language to touch people in the most glorious way!

School/Songwriting Residencies

A Bob Reid residency is a great opportunity for your students to experience Bob's unique mixture of fun and thoughfulness. A typical residency begins with assemblies to introduce Bob to the students and give them a taste of what is to come. This is followed by classroom workshops consisting of songwriting, stories, singing along, and singing rounds that will engage and delight students. Often the residency culminates with a community concert to allow families in the greater community to participate and for the students to sing songs they have written with Bob. Over the years, Bob has heard from many grown-up students how his music, presence and example have made a positive difference in their lives. 

Residencies are tailored to each schools' needs. Typically, they are a week long, consisting of 5 classroom workshops per day. To arrange a residency, get more information, or school references, click here or the  "Contact Bob" link at the bottom of each page.

  • Like songwriting residencies, recording residencies begin with age-appropriate assemblies to introduce Bob and his work to the students and teachers.

  • Songwriting takes place in two one-hour sessions for each class.

  • Finally, Bob mixes and masters the recording and provides the master CD to the school. There are a number of possibilities for the final product. Each school can decide how to use the finished CD. It can be made available to students and their families for free or at production cost, make a copy for each classroom, for sale as a fundraiser.
