Summer Classes Are Here!

My preschool and baby music classes begin this week. I’m looking forward to seeing all their little faces and hear their sweet voices. I have lots of new songs and some great games that I’m looking forward to sharing!

ALSO- I’m finally getting it together and recording my children’s CD this summer. Yay! AND I have a camp for kids where we’ll record some of the tracks, and then perform the songs at the Farmers Market in Hudson. It’s going to be a great learning experience- for everyone!

Picture Books for Spring

This spring I am trying out some new books with my preschool music classes. My goal is to write at least two songs that complement these books. So that should be another post within a month!

Do you know any of these books? What are some of your favorites? Image

The Little Lamb was one of my favorites as a little girl, and I don’t think I’ve read it since I was about 5!

This next book just looked absolutely beautiful- lush in design and colors.

Munch Munch Munch¬†just looked very cute, and funny, with three little naughty bunnies. Lots of rhyming I can use to create rhythms and speech pieces, is what I’m thinking. Plus, “John the Rabbit” would be a perfect tie-in song.

Eric Carle’s books are always so beautiful, and little ones love them!Image

I knot that this one is great for music, as it’s all about the sounds one hears outside when walking.

I’d love to hear your recommendations! Do you use any in a class? With your children?

June 17th Show- so fun!
