Timmy is a perfectly normal school boy. But inside, he hears music in his head – all the time! How does this affect Timmy’s emotions, feelings and reactions in an everyday morning? Find out with musicians Rachel Johnston, Trent Arkleysmith and Gareth Bjaaland (Timmy) with a mandolin, musical saw, drums, banjo, cello and acrobatics. Students will discover how music can influence their own actions, thoughts and emotions through this energetic and unusual pairing of music making and circus.
