For over a quarter of a century, award-winning entertainer Adam Miller has captured the imagination of students across the United States with his highly entertaining, multi-cultural Singing Through History! folk music assemblies.

These acclaimed programs aid in the development of cultural and historical literacy, emphasizing the importance of history as a story well told. They conform to state History, Social Science, and Visual Arts Frameworks, addressing curriculum and subjects students are already studying in the classroom, and are designed to encourage group singing and interactivity.

  • American folksongs remind us that historical events were accomplished by ordinary people, not unlike ourselves, and help students realize that they, the young people of today, are not very different from the young people of past generations.
  • American folksongs help students understand what life was like for our American ancestors in the time before the telephone.
  • American folksongs help children locate their own place in the long stream of cultural tradition, and emphasize that America’s culture has diverse ethnic roots.

Students have a great time learning about American folklore and folk traditions while singing along.  With dozens of entertaining and educational assembly programs, Adam can perform two different assemblies at a back-to-back booking, with no audience maximum.
