Unfortunately, bullying, self esteem issues and the need for mutual care and understanding, don’t only occur in the school classroom. Summer community sports teams, summer camp, neighborhood playgrounds…wherever kids gather… bullying and exclusion can happen. Some children easily adapt to new situations and some children need extra help. Children come in all different packages, sizes, and skills, as do all people. Understanding about differences brings acceptance. The Best Foot Forward Music Series is dedicated to using uplifting, fun music to create an appreciation for the adventure of being human. We believe our positive, educational, entertaining music can bring human harmony and understanding.
As we approach the end of the school year, or if you are already thinking of your children in a new classroom and with a new teacher come fall, perhaps you would consider gifting your teacher, principle, school counselor, or administrator with the Best Foot Forward Music Series for use in your child’s classroom or school. Also think about gifting the summer sports coach, your child’s camp counselor, or summer birthday parties, with music that can help and heal.
We are excited to announce the July 31st release of Someone Else’s Shoes, the 3rd CD in the Best Foot Forward Music Series. All the songs on Someone Else’s Shoes highlight empathy as a key ingredient for living in harmony with others. The album features 15 tracks that showcase contributions by a sampling of some of today’s most gifted kids’ musicians, including two-time GRAMMY® winners Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer, four-time Emmy® winning composer/performer Jamie Broza, and Parents’ Choice® and NAPPA winner Swingset Mamas.
All three albums in the series are described more fully and available on our Music & Store page. We also have a short Youtube video that provides a flavor for our newest member of the BFF series.
