Dear Parents:

The Hollow Tree's basic philosophy is Respect the Child. Children are smarter and more resourceful than many folks give them credit for. We respect this, and never talk down or dumb down our presentation because it's aimed at the family.

When you attend our shows, we encourage you to pay attention to the music and avoid talking with other parents. By paying attention you model this behavior for your children and encourage them to focus on the show.

We encourage everyone to make their own music at home. You can have your own hootenanny with just your voices and some clapping or dancing.

Check out our Links page for some great resources and other music that your family will enjoy.
