KIDS/FAMILY: General Children''s Music, WORLD: World Traditions
Sally''s Music Circle is a weekly music class in Pennsylvania for very young children, infants to age 5, and their parents. An important part of our music classes of singing, dancing and instrument play is our CD of songs and activities that families use for music play at home and in the car. Sally''s Music Circle has produced six different CDs for use in our classes and "Mary Wore Her Red Dress" is the second of our CDs that is available to the general public.
Parents and grandparents report that our CDs are their children''s #1 choice for all car rides. Parents tell us they enjoy listening to our CDs even when their kids are not in the car. They also report that even their youngest pre-verbal, car seat occupants have figured out a way to ask for their Sally''s Music Circle CD in the car.
Each CD has a variety of songs and activities in different styles, rhythms and tonalities from around the World. There are seven different professional singers and nineteen nationally known instrumentalists in this richly diverse collection of songs selected and arranged to encourage singing and music play in very young children. You''ll love it when you see your child sing, coo, move, shake, clap and bop to our songs.
What makes this CD special?
It''s great that CD Baby will let you listen to our songs! Listen and you will hear the difference but also . . .
(1) This is probably one of the few CDs where your very young child can sing along with all the songs. Why? Because young children have a small singing range. They can only physically sing from about middle C to the A above middle C, so all our songs are in that range.
(2) Are only 10 notes boring? NO. In selecting songs, we picked from "tried and true" songs that have withstood the test of time. We''ve included songs families have loved for generations such as "Get On Board" and a "Greek Dance" tune. But we have also carefully selected a few choice newly composed songs like "Hootchy Kootchy Dance" and our "Parenting Jig". You get all the fun, variety and musical diversity you enjoy and young children thrive on in one CD!
(3) Children love variety so our CDs give them lots to decipher musically with different tonalities, meters and musical styles. We''ve included songs in Major and minor tonalities plus some more unusual scales. Most of the music that children hear has rhythms that "move in two''s" so we''ve also included music that moves in three''s, five''s and seven''s. A young child''s musical mind soaks up all these differences easily and it provides a rich foundation for future music learning.
(4) Our CD includes World class musicians playing real instruments. (There are not a lot of synthesized sounds on our recordings). Musicians like Andy Stein, violinist on Prairie Home Companion, Grammy-nominated Irish musician, Seamus Egan, nationally sought after bass/guitar player, Jeff Lee Johnson and master percussionist, "Doc" Leonard Gibbs. Our array of engaging, multi-talented vocalists includes Chet Brown, Claudine Bastien, Tom Gala, Denise Montana Pickard, Tom Pickard, Yvette Myles and Sally Weaver.
What''s with the title?
Mary Wore Her Red Dress is the second song on the CD (after the Hello Song) and one of our favorites. Families love to sing this song using their own names and articles of clothing. This song is especially popular with fashion conscious four year olds.
Who is Sally?
There is a Sally. Our founder and director, Sally C. Weaver, received her Ph.D. in Music Education from Temple University and has taught music classes to young children and their families since 1983. Sally created the classes, produced the CDs and did a bit of singing and French horn playing on the CDs.
