Monty Harper is an award-winning children's songwriter and recording artist. Joyful respect for libraries, books, language and literacy permeates his work. Harper never "writes down" to kids; his songs are imaginative, humorous, upbeat and intelligent, inspiring kids (and adults!) to move, clap, laugh and sing along.
Harper is available throughout the year for library reading programs and elementary school programs. During the summer season, Harper presents library programs based on the designated statewide theme. His programming for elementary schools includes:
Science from the Science Frontier (1st-5th grades)
Music and Movement (Pre K-2nd grades)
Oklahoma History (Pre K-5th grades)
Reading Celebrations (Pre K-5th grades)
Just for Fun
Harper's Say it in a Song program for the Oklahoma Arts Council's Performing Arts Corps includes an assembly performance and two workshops focusing on teaching students the basics of songwriting. The program is available to Oklahoma elementary schools.
In addition to leading kids in the creation of their own original songs through his workshops and residencies, Harper performs at family concerts and festivals year round throughout Oklahoma.
