    "Happy Kids and Happy Teachers"

    We know you're dealing with some of the most demanding consumers out there so we make our guarantee simple:
    If you and your kids don't completely fall in love with our music programme.. we'll completely refund your money!

    Here's What Teacher's Say:

    "Children love the songs"

    One of the challenges for generalist teachers is knowing what to do with a song and how to move forward. In this programme, teachers can see a clear progression, with learning goals and outcomes, presented in a user-friendly format.
    It offers teachers a range of choices - far more that just the song itself. There are the video songs, the unit plans, the extra learning opportunities and cross-curricular possibilities and opportunities for integration that could fit well with an inquiry approach.
    Children love the songs, and this resource is very good value for money."
    Judy Inkster- Music Specialist, Cornwall Park School


    "Up the Tempo is a thorough,
    easy to use music programme"

    Up the Tempo is a thorough, easy to use music programme. It contains simple-to-teach, whole-class activities as well as ways to extend children. There is support for teachers who are not themselves musical, yet contains ideas and terminology to really add to children's knowledge and understandings.
    This will become a regular programme in many classrooms."
    Karen Seth- Primary School Teacher and Preschool Dance Instructor


    "They are loved by all children"

    I was introduced to Love to Sing songs by some wonderful NZ teachers when I was working in London. Since then I have used them in my classrooms all over the world - they are loved by all children, but I find them particularly helpful for children learning English - they just can't resist joining in with the actions, delightful tunes and fun lyrics (TPR).
    My (and my students) special favourite is "hello" it's a great settling-in song in those first few scary days when they start 'big' school. By the end of the week they are practically charging into the classroom in the morning to put the CD player on and start a fun-filled energetic day. Parents from all nationalites come up to me humming your songs - they are a fantastic springboard to instilling a love of music in all. I especially love to see children who are initially reticent about speaking aloud - singing at the top of their voices - magical!!!
    Thank you, keep up the good work
    Best wishes,
    Sharon Heywood :)

    "And they are fun, which I think
    is very important"

    Hi Linda,

    My name is Tracie Jones and I am currently in my first year studying to become a teacher in Christchurch. At the moment I am doing music lessons with children and planning the lessons. I love the 'Love to sing' songs and think they are perfect for the age I am teaching. And they are fun, which I think is very important.
    Thank-you very much,
    Tracie Jones

    "I highly recommend the series.."

    Hi Linda,

    I actually live in Sudan and am in my fourth year now and teach preschool in the Khartoum American School. I discovered your Love to Sing Series while I was teaching in Laos. Our New Zealand music teacher used the Jack in the Box and Hey Baby, Let's Rock and Roll with our group. I was hooked.

    I Googled the songs and found your website. I use the videos as a very positive means of musical expression and a real life experience seeing other children involved in music. Children who might not be very expressive normally will begin to sing along and some will jump up in spontaneous dancing.

    I highly recommend the series as a means to provide children with an opportunity to generate inner feelings for music and free expression. I play the CDs in the outside play area to let the children generate their own spontaneous actions to the songs.

    "They are awesome"

    Hi Linda

    I am a New Zealand citizen and New Zealand Early childhood teacher. I used to listen to your CD's when I was in New Zealand. They are awesome.
    Now I am working in the USA at a Montessori school and I have already introduced a few songs from Love to Sing CD's to our kids. They really enjoy them!
    Thank you
