Children's Music

Fisher Price Music for Children

We have been applying research-based understandings of early childhood music development and learning to create an applied “music curriculum” for pre-school children. In 2001 we began working with Somerset Entertainment to produce children’s for Fisher Price. These recordings are produced in Toronto studios with Toronto musicians. Our input varies from one album to the next, but from the start, our involvement has been developing content concepts, assuring a mix of education with entertainment, selecting music materials, writing song material, creating child-development research-based music guidelines for composers and arrangers, coaching singers, participating in recording and mixing sessions, writing all liner notes with suggestions for parents, recording personal material, and endorsing the recordings with a personal photo in the liner notes. These recordings all have world-wide distribution.
Albums are in 2 main Series:
  • Music for Babies (ages 0 - 3)
  • Little People albums (ages 3 - 5)
