Respect the Rhythm in You

Jim Cosgrove


In this interactive character education program, Jim "Mr. Stinky Feet" Cosgrove helps students identify personal rhythm through music, and he leads a discussion about respecting personal rhythm, the rhythm of others, and rhythm of the earth. Audience volunteers help demonstrate rhythm concepts and participate by playing along in one of two impromptu "jam" sessions. Students identify three specific ways they can exemplify respect in their communities.
