“I have mostly used the “Welcome to Music” song, and it is now a staple of my classroom. It’s a great way to start our classroom routine. I especially loved the notes on every song; they are well worth the price of the book alone! We’ve used one or two other songs in the book, but I’m very excited to have the resource to keep coming back to every year. I would highly recommend it for any elementary music teacher!” – Angie
“The songs in your book are a lot of fun for my students to sing and were a wonderful way to start the school year.” – Christine
“Tonight I finally got around to buying your book. To be honest I wasn’t sure what it would be like….
Now I’m really pleased I did as the ideas are new and fresh.” – Wendy
