VIDEO: Standard 9 Student Luke Mammel Performs for Kids at St. Andrew’s Preschool

Luke Mammel—a student in the Standard 9 Transition Concentration at Y.A.L.E.’s Cherry Hill Campus—loves music and loves to perform. He dreams of one day becoming a professional musician and children’s entertainer, so the staff set out to find him an audience.

One morning this January at St. Andrew’s preschool in Cherry Hill, an enthusiastic crowd of young children and their teachers welcomed Luke and his guitar. He sang and played for the children for about 30 minutes each at two performances, covering favorites such as “Puff the Magic Dragon” and “There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly.”
