Is it a Happy Mother’s Day?

It’s the day where we celebrate our mums and females who have cared for us.  I’m so happy to see the happy photos of families with their mums and beautiful greetings on Facebook. For some today may not be so happy.  Being a mum is beautiful but it can have it’s challenges. No book, class or person really prepares you for this job!

I was one of those people who used to think “oh I’m never going to put my child on a ‘leash’! ” until I had a very active little boy.

I used to say, “oh I’m going to have a natural birth and it will be all fine” I was induced and had an emergency C section.

I used to think “breast feeding us going to be a breeze!” and I spent weeks in tears because it just wasn’t working.

Judging people! Yes, that’s what I found myself doing…we all do it….

It’s a working progress. I often catch myself in that “don’t judge mode.”  It may be because I am now a mum and also a Kindermusik educator who meet families each week.  Families with newborn babies to families with teenagers.

Last year, I bumped into an old Kindermusik parent.  She had told me the very sad news of another Kindermusik mum passing away unexpectedly.  Both mums became close and had been coming to my Kindermusik classes since their kids were 6 months old until it was time for them to go to BIG school.  This just broke my heart, she left behind 3 little girls and a loving husband.  Each week they would come to class so happy and excited.  That’s how I remember this beautiful and amazing mum.

Next time you see a mum who is having a hard time, give a smile or supportive comment.

If you are the mum struggling that day you don’t need to always be a Superwoman.  It’s ok to ask for help.

Even if you see the “all together” or “happy go lucky” mum ask them if they are ok. They may be hiding some pain behind their smile.

I have spent the day contemplating on whether or not I should share this song with you, I was scared that I was going to be judged on the quality of the song, then I thought that it may bring comfort to a mum or a child out there.

Well, that is my intention – to bring comfort.

This song is called “Tomorrow, it’ll be a better day.” It’s Christian’s favourite song…it’s my lullaby for him…MY WHITE FLAG during our battles.

This is dedicated to Rosemary and her beautiful girls and husband.

I would love to thank Van Sereno for helping me bring my thoughts to life and Byron Mark for helping me record this song.

We all have good days and bad days. Then there are those days when something isn’t quite right, you’ve got something on your mind, or things just seem too much. Whatever it may be, sharing the load with someone else can really help. Call Beyond Blue – Call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week 1300 22 4636.

Remember you are someone’s reason to smile.  It IS a happy mothers day!

This is my little gift for you! If you would like a free copy of this song just fill out your details below.

107 age appropriate songs for kids to sing

So here are 107 songs that are age appropriate for kids to sing. I have categorised them but remember they can be changed to make it your own.

Don’t limit yourself…just because the original sounds a certain way doesn’t mean you have to disregard the song.

Be creative and change it to suit YOU! Maybe you have to change the key or the feel of the song. Here are some examples of what you can do:

  •  Girls can sing boys songs and boys can sing girls songs just change some lyrics if need be
  •  Make a fast song slow
  •  Make a slow song fast
  •  Change the feel of the song e.g Pop song have an RnB feel or an old song more modern
  •  Make a solo song a group song or as a duet
  •  Mash up song songs!
page-header-press

I haven’t listed any adult songs or adult themed songs however please don’t limit yourself to singing songs even if they have adult words in them – perhaps ask a parent to help you change the lyrics of the song so that you can eliminate the inappropriate words. For example part of the Price Tag song you can change the word Video hoe to Video Girl.

These are just some ideas, if you have any other song ideas or arrangement ideas for our readers please comment below. We would love to hear from you!

Charice making One Voices’ dream a reality

I’m so excited to share the video Charice made for the One Voice students! In the video she talks about how it is an honour and a privilege to be an inspiration to young singers.

I hope it inspires people to keep dreaming!

Thank you to past and current One Voice students for their continued support and belief!

In 2010, my students made a YouTube Video to meet Charice! Many people shared our video and supported us including Lea Salonga! Because of this, the video went viral among Charice’s fans. I would have never thought that it would happen but it’s finally coming true after 4 yrs!!!

A special thanks to Cheers E Australia for making this happen!

Please share if you believe that dreams can come true.

Here is the original video One Voice made.  This was when Charice was in Glee hence the Sunshine Corazon costumes and glasses. The video has now over 27,000 hits.

Tell us what dream has come true for you?

AN INTERVIEW WITH ANN VIOLATA FROM SBS FILIPINO RADIO!

I hope you enjoy listening to it.

Ann Violata from SBS FIlipino Radio asks how can these original songs sung and written by people in the music industry be protected especially here in Australia?

The song features my original song called One Voice co-written by Singer/songwriter Van Sereno.

Please be aware that most of the interview is in Tagalog although my answers are in English.

If you have any questions about APRA or songwriting please leave a comment or email me.  I would love to connect!
