The songs in Character Collections I and II are songs that have been written in collaboration with educators and students. The songs specifically address the pillars of Character Education. They contain messages that Educators wanted to see delivered to the students in their schools. Most of the songs were written in Artist in Residence programs in New York State. Songs for kids don’t have to be cheesy sounding! Kids react well to good, authentic, quality music. I had a teacher ask me if we could write songs for their monthly Character Ed assembly programs. That’s how it started. These songs were all written in the Capital Region of New York State. The schools involved with these particular songs were Blue Creek Elementary (North Colonie), Jackson Heights Elementary (Glens Falls), Charleton Heights Elementary (Ballston Lake), Kensington Road Elementary (Glens Falls), Forest Park Elementary (South Colonie), and Roessleville Elementary (South Colonie). A huge thank you goes out to these schools I have worked with to write these songs! I encourage you to use these songs in your classrooms and for assemblies at your school. There are many movements and sign language that has been developed to go with these songs. You can contact me through my website to get more info.
