Raven's Journey is a musical that combines music, art, and history to teach students about the life of Sam Houston.  The format is a "living timeline" where students step out in character as Sam Houston to explain different periods of his life, with choral and dance performances taking place in between.  The music comes from the Scott-Foresman CDs which are used in Texas, and all of the music is easily found in the public domain if live accompaniment is desired.  The downloads are free and there are no fees for performance in a public or private school.

Comments About Raven's Journey:

I was fortunate enough to have made the first showing of your musical, Raven’s Journey. I can not relate to you how much my wife and I enjoyed it. Your musical certainly promoted Texas History and was extremely successful.

Your students did an outstanding job. I am sure that remembering Sam Houston and the story of Texas will always be special to each one of these fourth graders. I appreciate your willingness to integrate history in such a special way.

Raven's Journey is excellent and does a wonderful job in crossing curriculum in the fields of history, art and music. It is also a fun way for students to learn and thus makes the information easier to retain. This is the best program I have ever seen.
