The Weight of Words

The Weight of Words

Here’s a punchy kid’s song about the responsibility we all have for our use of language. It’s particularly pertinent during this burgeoning era of social media and communications. I predict that this subject will become a greatly invested in element of social and personal education […]

Curiosity Killed the Cat (with guest)

Curiosity Killed the Cat (with guest)

This one’s a firm favorite, though the kids need a bit of help learning the lists at the end. It’s worth it when they do and certainly stimulates conversation about history and the people who made it.

Campfire

Campfire

For around the campfire or perhaps for when you’re just wishing you were around the campfire.

A Delicious Day

A Delicious Day

Here’s a clapping song you can make your own. Kids choose the foods they can’t stand and dad always gets the top worst to turn into desert at the end (I made a mistake here and said ‘snack’ but it’s definitely meant to be desert). […]

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?

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

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.
