Thanks for Whatever

Was super duper excited to come across your song Whatever. I always like to start off my "Anti-Bullying" unit with a song and follow-up activities, but admittedly, I need to jazz up this part!! This is wonderful and I am looking forward to using it with my kids soon! Thanks so much!

Love for Enough

My students love your Enough song song so much! I teach middle school choir in a high poverty city close to Detroit. I don't have any money or music budget to purchase music and so it is really hard to find songs that students like. I teach one class with severely cognitively impaired students- I was going to make it a general music class ( a few don't speak very well) but when I played them your song they loved it and said they wanted to sing. One boy is very shy and today when they were taking turns coming up to sing another song in front of others - this boy said "ok I will come up but only if I can sing "Enough"! It just a beautiful song with a message that has led to some great discussions.

Bless the Mess

Your song Messy is a hidden treasure! Love the “bless the mess.” Perfect for stressful times. Not just for kids.

What Matters

I teach in a very rough neighborhood where the kids are some of the most vulnerable (and thus extremely defensive) students I have ever had. My school has the students "graduate" in 6th grade and move onto a school with 7th-12th graders in one building. This does NOT help that self-preservation mechanism they have-- to help yourself at any cost (even if it will hurt others). I have been asked to teach the 6th graders a song for their "graduation", and I have been searching for months. Every "usual" song I found made me feel like it was just another thing they had to learn that wouldn't help them. Then I found your song Fearless, and right there in the middle of Barnes & Noble I started weeping because it says everything I want them to remember. Thank you so much. You are helping students you will never meet, but I am thanking you for-- what I believe will be-- the lasting impression this song will leave on their lives.

Vital Music

What an excellent way to bring musical intelligence into mainstream learning. So vital and yet far too rare for many teens especially! Thanks!

Heart and Soul

My elementary GLEE CLUB sang this song and absolutely adored the music. I have to admit I got a little teary-eyed hearing them sing this! The piano part is also really fitting and beautiful to play. My kids sang it with such heart and soul! Thanks!!!

Spring Concert hit

Yours was our 5th graders' favorite piece on our spring concert. The audience loved the piece too!

Something Unique

Fearless is such a great song! So glad I came across you ! It's nice to find songs that are appealing to those upper elem kids. It's a "pop" song that is new to most listeners. Something unique. Thank you.

Original and Inspiring for MS

As a middle school teacher, I really appreciate your music and lesson plans. The depth contained in your material well prepares students for the social studies lessons we present to them later on. What you are up to is so wonderful and needed! It’s also truly original and inspiring. There’s nothing else like it.

Freeze Game / Sign Language Fun

My students are asking for your songs during their quiet work time, they want to learn all the words. Oh, and for the Freeze Game too. We’re also learning one of your songs in Sign Language as well as using them for our end of the year slide show. Your songs and lesson plans seem to hit everything we’ve been talking about all year. Thank you for your wonderful contributions to building a caring classroom and wonderful young citizens!

Mindful choice

My students had many many songs to choose from for their graduation. Your Gift song was everyone's choice - they never tire of it! I believe it makes them feel wise!

Gift is an amazing song! Our graduating 4th graders will be singing this piece for their end of the year performance, and I know it will be a crowd pleaser! As a music educator, I really appreciation the musicality of this piece for young voices

Word fest

My students are in love with your song Fearless. It has so many words, and they insist on learning and memorizing every last one! It's made a difference.

Special concert

Got Your Back is our All-time favorite song. We had some students lose their mom and the support from the community was "Got your back". We sang this song for a special concert at the end of the year. So emotional and fitting! Thanks!

Do you Wonder lesson and song: Great lyrics for inspiring creativity. I don't know exactly what it is - but somehow your flow inspires kids to copy and write themselves. Neat trick!

Depth and IQ

Your music has not just enhanced the lives of the students in my class, but has changed their lives as well. We are absolutely in love with it. It has depth, intelligence, and great hooks that cross generations and draw entire families in. It belongs not only in schools, but everywhere.
