Create Vision - Novelist, Guitar Guy, Funster

Creativity and Spontaneity have served as my launch point on a journey to dissolve my inner blocks to joy and light. Children, music, and writing have all played a part.

I have worked with Robert as the head Children’s Librarian for 20+ years, known as Robert the Guitar Guy, Robert is one of the best children’s musicians I’ve worked with. There are many reasons that make Robert especially appealing to younger children (2-6 years old), but I will highlight his high musical performing abilities being an excellent guitarist, a strong sense of humour in his short skits/puppetries, a warm and personable approach connecting with his audience (he will always go through the troubles to learn everyone’s name) and his improvisational skills in throwing any songs tailored to the demands from the audience.

Robert was a lifeline for the children and caretakers during the worst days of the pandemic when he performed outdoors on our village green.  This was something to look forward to.  A time of connection during times of isolation and fear.  What I really appreciate about Robert is that he takes the time to get to know children by their names and their natures.  He knows how to talk to each child and has a keen sense of their needs and interests.  He even has some students who regularly bring in their guitars so that they can play alongside Robert the Guitar Guy.”

We are happy that Robert is a part of the excellent children’s programming that we offer at the library and we look forward to working with Robert in the future.

Robert ‘the Guitar Guy’ Markowitz has been performing for our toddlers and preschoolers for the past eight years. He has done everything from small classes to giant New Year’s Eve parties and even wonderful zooms! Patrons have all talked about how well he engages the kids and have asked for him back every time we have to take a break. What I love about Robert’s performances are that they are interactive, he works to remember the names of the children which helps to get even the shyest child comfortable enough to participate. He adapts each class to match how the audience is feeling and can quickly change the set list if he finds the kids are really responding to certain songs. I have tons of fun at his programs and will always be dancing along with the children!
