Nature Nurture

Nature Nurture

This is the first song I wrote for adults and it’s crying out for a Eurovision treatment. You going to take it there?

GLWT

GLWT

This is a song I wrote for kids leaning music in high school. It’s got everything they need to work on in small ensemble or big band, but also gives them the chance to be a bit cheeky and tell their parents and teachers just […]

Respect the Differences

Respect the Differences

A social education song about giving each other space to be who we are so that we can be stronger together.  It’s a good facilitator of discussion with an up-beat feel and the kids love singing and dancing to it. We certainly wouldn’t want to […]

You and Me Makes We

You and Me Makes We

Yes, well, not wee, but ‘we’! Alright, I didn’t quite think past naming this song for Dutch kids and forgot that English kids would read this title differently 😉 However, it’s still a good one for social education and if you can get them past […]

The Freedom to be Me

The Freedom to be Me

This song was written for a class of Dutch children in their last year of primary school, just before the American elections of 2016. I’d handed them a small list of questions about how they were feeling at that particular stage in their lives, thinking […]

The Wrong Crowd (Mia’s Song).

The Wrong Crowd (Mia’s Song).

Remember when you started school and wondered some days where you’d landed and how you were going to survive it? This is a pop-song about just that and it gives kids the chance to sing about this new life of theirs.  

The Mirror

The Mirror

How does a mum help her daughter through this strangely gendered world of ours, when we all struggle to navigate the fog? Logic dictates that things aren’t right…and sometimes that’s all we have to go on. Oh…and courage, respect, tolerance and love.  

A Song Today

A Song Today

This is such a great song to sing and would sound lovely with lots of kid’s voices. I can guarantee there wouldn’t be a dry eye in the house at the parent’s concert! Some days we just don’t understand the world and some days we […]

Three Little Monkeys

Three Little Monkeys

Not a song written by me, unfortunately. It’s a classic goodie that goes down well every time!  

ABC Song

ABC Song

So…kids in Holland are taught the standard ABC song we all grew up singing, but in Dutch of course. We needed one in English. So I made it! Enjoy.
