For many, many years I have performed children's music. In 2007, I began tracking my audience numbers in order to quantify the number of children that have attended my Cowboy Music For Kids performances. I am now over 54,000 and the numbers will just keep on growing!

Educating Kids Through Cowboy Music

​​​In addition to Marshall's Big Book, I have two other Cowboy Music For Kids programs that I offer for children's events.

​​Cowboy Music For Kids Rodeo Show

During the Rodeo Show kids learn about cowboy equipment, cowboy skills, and how rodeo got started. The cowboy code and character traits will also be found in this show. I sing some of my of my core Cowboy Music For Kids songs, along with some special rodeo songs. The show features a rodeo stage set.

​​Cowboy Music For Kids Western Expansion

The Western Expansion Show is targeted to elementary school students studying western history and the wild west. Kids learn about the cowboy code, cowboy equipment, cowboy skills, cattle drives, cow towns and changes brought by the railroad. It includes many of my core Cowboy Music For Kids songs along with songs related to western expansion.

As Captain Marshall, over the last seven years I have performed the Illinois River Watershed Partnership's Clean Water Raingers Program. I wrote ten original watershed songs and perform the program to help teach children how to protect and preserve our most precious natural resource - Water. These songs are another tool to help teach our children responsibility.

They will imagine themselves out on the open range or riding herd on a famous cattle trail; learning about cowboy tools of the trade, riding their pony, eating cowboy grub, or stretching out on their trusty bedroll. It's always a ...
