Principal, Prairie School - Waunakee, Wisconsin

“Skip has a deep concern for older adults. He includes the seniors in his programs with songs, stories and humor they enjoy. His musical ability touches everyone. During one of his performances, a client who had not participated in a single activity in 4 months got up and danced and smiled. We include Skip in our programming at least once a month. We can’t recommend him highly enough. Please don’t hesitate to call me if you’d like to know more about Skip’s performances.”
