I’ve been away from this blog for far too long! Time to get back to share more of the wonderful world of music available to parents, teachers, and children for learning that’s memorable and fun. I will be sharing samples from the songs available on my CD “It’s a Nice Day for Ducks” in addition to other favorite learning songs. Be on the lookout for more information on how important music is to learning and sample lessons for use with the songs. Let’s get started…
Classroom transition times can be the most trying times of the school day. Does it ever seem to take forever for your students to finish one task and move quickly and quietly to another? For a simple and effective way to encourage on task behaviors, try playing I Will Listen as a feel good reminder and a motivating cue! Ready to listen?

Click on the link below for an enlightening article on information we should inherently know. Parents, teachers, and community – join in and speak up for children. The arts – in particular music, play a critical role in high student achievement. The problem that presents itself in education is many non-musical people set the curriculum guidelines that all educators must follow. I once had a kindergarten teacher tell me she did not see the value of music to kindergarten students. My heart sank! How much time are your children or students allowed to take part in the arts at school? Head’s up! Thirty minutes a week is not enough.
