I'd just like you to know that my little choir's performance of The Seed at the official Grand Opening of the school where I teach was a resounding success! The children loved the song, and learnt it quickly, thanks to all the back-up and supports that you provide.

D Taylor, Ontario, Canada

…what a great service you do having bought the three Christmas song pack. Great songs and the children love them - got the link from our resident Australian singing teacher who put me on to your website. Now using them for Christmas performances in the community and the school Christmas concert this coming Thursday. Will definitely be purchasing more!

Scott McGlone - Head of Creative Arts, Holbrook Academy, Suffolk UK

I purchased 5 songs from your website for a childrens choir called "Growing Voices". The kids absolutely loved your songs (and I do too) particularly I Am The Earth seems to be their favourite song. I believe your songs have a very high educative value and the arrangements are "easy" but very effective.

Paolo Fabris - Director of the Centre for Youth and Community Music at Charles Darwin University, Australia

The children and I absolutely LOVE you product! I am a Montessori teacher doing singing with ages 6 to 12. I particularly enjoy the part-singing in two parts as the younger ones can generally manage the soprano part and the 9-12s do the alto. The way your product is put together, with complete backing tracks, is really helpful as the children enjoy that more than just me playing the piano...
