2015 has proven itself to be the year of inspiration for me so far. I started it off with a brand-new podcast, then launched my first-ever songwriting challenge (still one day left to join!), and most recently, I’ve been hard at work on a new songbook collection — the follow-up to 2013’s Tapping, Shaking Music Making!
That songbook collection was a big hit and is still one of my bestsellers, so I’ve always had plans to write a “part 2”. I figured there was no better time than at almost 9 months pregnant, just weeks shy of my due date…right? ;)
Ring, Sing, Strum & Drum! will contain 12 completely brand-new instrument songs for children, including the full and instrumental tracks as well as sheet music for each. The full collection will be released on May 5, BUT you can preorder your copy now and receive 3 of the songs immediately.
In addition to the songs that are already available, I will be adding tunes written specifically for these instruments:
- rhythm sticks
- jingle bells
- lollipop drums
- hand bells
I used my own music therapy instrument cabinet as inspiration, keeping in mind the instruments I use most often in my sessions, groups and classes. I’ve already put some of the songs to use with my own students, and I’m happy to report that they have been extremely well-received and effective.
I sell single-song album downloads (which include the full track + instrumental + lead sheet) for $3 a pop, but this 12-song collection is priced at just $12. I hope you’ll consider adding it to your repertoire, and I appreciate your support in advance!
Let me know if you have any questions, comments or feedback on the songbook collection so far. And thank you to those of you who have already placed your order…I can’t wait to share the rest of it with you in just a couple of weeks.
