{Seasonal Song Pack} Fall!

Fall Song Pack

Happy first day of Fall! I’m not sure how we got to this point in the year already, but here we are…so we might as well sing about it. Many of my music therapy sessions, early childhood classes, and groups revolve around themes, so we’ll be doing plenty of singing about all things FALL over the next few weeks.

Since I know many of you will, too, I created a seasonal song pack comprised of 3 songs all about Fall. The pack includes the song recordings as well as a PDF songbook with melody line, lyrics, and chords. I chose the 3 songs that I rotate the MOST throughout this season; you can sing about Fall week after week while still offering some variety.

This snackable pack is just $5, so add it to your Fall repertoire today.

Summertime Tune

I’ve been writing this blog for almost 6 years now, and blabbing on and on about how much I love summer for just as long. So August is always a little bittersweet, because that means my favorite season is almost over and fall will be here in a blink.

But this year instead of feeling sad, I’m trying to relish the time that we still have left — almost an entire month! — before September is here. Step one: post my reworked version of an OLD classic.

Originally, this song was simply titled “Summer” (just like the rest of my songs about the seasons). I posted that version way back in 2009 and have been singing it with my students ever since, but this year wanted to change it up since I was including it in my Spring Into Summer songbook.

I changed the title to “Summertime Tune” and added some new instrumentation…I hope you like it! Listening to it makes me think of sitting outside with a glass of lemonade, enjoying the heat and a good book before jumping in the pool. Here’s to a few more weeks of glorious summer.

One Season to Another

I’ve been yapping on and on about my new digital songbook collection, Spring Into Summer, yet I’ve completely neglected to share the title song here on the blog. I wrote it just off the heels of our final winter snowstorm (I lost count back in January), when spring and summer seemed like a very distant ray of sun in a frozen tundra. I shudder at the memory.

I wanted to write a song that covered both seasons, since lots of kiddos consider the end of the school year to be summer — even though it doesn’t technically begin until the end of June. In all honesty, I’m with them! My birthday is on June 5th, and I always think of that as the kickoff to my favorite season.

What song(s) do you sing as the seasons change and school comes to an end? And on that topic, can you even believe that there are mere days left until summer break? Just about all of my students have a countdown going, and they are sure to update me every time I see them. Not that they are keeping track or anything!

“Spring Into Summer” is Here!

Spring Into Summer Digital Songbook CollectionI knew I was excited about this project when I actually looked forward to staying up late transcribing my songs into sheet music and designing the layout. I haven’t gotten much sleep over the past two weeks, but the finished product is worth it.

I wanted to create a resource that reflects the sheer joy I’m feeling now that spring is here, which no doubt will carry into summer (my very favorite season!). I chose topics that are synonymous with the warm weather months: Mother’s Day, flowers, school getting out, Father’s Day, swimming, traveling, playing outside, the list goes on.

Spring Into Summer Songbook

This digital songbook includes the melody line, chords, and lyrics for 10 songs, including the never before released title track. It also comes with the mp3s and instrumental tracks for all 10 tunes, since I always encourage you (and your kiddos!) to create your own versions of Listen & Learn songs.

“Spring Into Summer”
“Thank You, Mom”
“Grow Flower Grow”
“Riding My Bike”
“Summer Break (Let’s Shake!)”
“Going on a Car Ride”
“Summertime Tune”
“Happy Father’s Day”
“In the Swimming Pool”
“S is for Summer”

Purchasing the lead sheet and mp3s for each individual song would cost you $3 a pop; multiply that by 10 songs and you’re out $30. But since I’m all about sharing the love, I’ve priced Spring Into Summer at a mere $10. Get it now and instantly increase your arsenal of warm weather songs for kids.

Join me in celebrating what is left of spring and preparing for the start of summer. There is so much to look forward to at this time of year, and music is a great way to help children understand and be ready for all the excitement to come!
