Whether it’s a country’s national anthem, a college sports team’s fight song, or a corporation’s advertising jingle, songs can inspire us and motivate us to action. The same is true for teaching and learning.
To this day I can still recall those Schoolhouse Rock! television segments explaining how a bill becomes a law (“I’m Just a Bill”) and how to use a conjunction properly (“Conjunction Junction”). Songs can help teachers teach and learners learn.
Since that day in 1993 when I played my first educational song for my class of third graders (“The Rain Forest Song”) I knew something special was happening. Of course they had fun singing along (I put the lyrics up on the screen in my classroom), but they also were practicing their reading skills, and even more importantly, they understood and remembered the key vocabulary and concepts in the song. That, in a nutshell, is where Singin’ Songs Music began.
So now there are three “Singin’ Songs of Science” cds and several collections of songs on environmental education topics. Have a look around the website. Listen to some songs and read the lyrics. And if you have a question or a special request, just send me an email or call.
Thanks for visiting and enjoy the music!
