This CD includes songs that I sing almost everyday with young children as I have the privilege to sing in many different preschools and children's centers. I believe that young children like songs that invite them to move around, play instruments, sing along, or clap their hands. It is good that children learn to appreciate many different styles of music, but this album also includes the songs that they love to hear. As a music instructor for young children at Mountain Top Music Center in Conway, New Hampshire, I have made it my life's love, passion, and work to create music that children love. From the smiles that I see on their faces when I perform, I think that I have accomplished that. With young children we want to teach rhythm and pitch. I say everyday that I waste my time teaching if they aren't having any fun. This album includes traditional and original songs and arrangements. I have had children, not just adults, evaluate the songs. I am convinced that your babies, toddlers, preschoolers, some older children and even adults will enjoy these songs.
