Songwriting and other musical pursuits allow me to connect, feel, know something, experience a truth, express, and love. I first began writing songs in my 20s, to celebrate life, create beauty, and heal heartaches! Simply, songwriting, singing and making music are the most direct link to bliss that I know of. N’est-ce pas?
This music is for families, schools, daycares, kids clubs, in the car, anywhere, everywhere!! My collaborator Rocky Gallo and I’s goal with our children’s music CD Be My Mirror (2016) is to entice dynamic movement and plant seeds of emotional wellbeing and bonding for families. The Be My Mirror CD is dedicated to my beloved niece Magnolia, who inspired many songs, specifically Bigger Love, named by her.
Good for daily dancing and singing, these songs are designed to help kids flow through transitions like waking up, going to bed, and getting’ moving! There are a couple of tunes, such as I Love Animals to support moving the ‘Developmental Movement Patterns’ that all kids benefit from engaging!
(See www.themovingchild.com for more info on these movement patterns laid down in the first year of life and their importance in our physical, brain and emotional development!)
You are welcome to see the song intentions of each of the tracks.
