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 

The Freedom to be Me

The Freedom to be Me

This song was written for a class of Dutch kids in their last year of primary school. It was just before the American elections of 2016. I’d handed them a small questionnaire about their feelings at that particular time in life, intending to give them

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.

A Song Today

A Song Today

Three Little Monkeys

Three Little Monkeys

Not a song written by me, unfortunately. It’s a classic goodie that goes down well every time!   Here are some very clever monkeys!    

ABC Song

ABC Song

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

Three Little Speckled Frogs

Three Little Speckled Frogs

Another English language classic! I first learnt this with my own children and we’ve been happily exclaiming ‘yum yum’ ever since. Enjoy!   Sooooo many speckles. We almost can’t see the frog (oh…maybe that’s the idea..!) Photo by Kuma Kum, Germany   And just because
