Ms. Buckley presented the first Story Songs concert in January 2009 and again in March 2011 featuring workshop participants to rave reviews. Mark Lowry's review celebrates, "The results, we must say, were heavenly." And Perry Stewart said, "The ideal plan would be to extend the run of Story Songs, or better yet, take this sublimely entertaining show on the road."
Ms. Buckley shares her expertise for telling stories in song and guides her students through a teaching philosophy that facilitates audience connection through songs and monologues. Her emotional connection to songs and audiences is world renowned, and that very connection is at the heart of what Ms. Buckley imparts to her students. Having been a teacher for over 40 years, Ms. Buckley teaches regularly in Fort Worth as well as workshops in Los Angeles, New York, and around the country.
