Kathryn Radloff is an Arts (Hons) Psych graduate. A singer/songwriter in her own right, she has a background in the Creative & Performing Arts, Social Work and Psychology.
As educators in the field, Nuala and Kathryn firmly believe that children not only LOVE to sing, they also LEARN what they sing!
After scouting libraries and local educational supply stores, they found very little in the way of material which was not only ORIGINAL, but at the same time, supported Values and Curriculum learning.
This discovery, together with their firm belief in the power of music to unlock children's learning potential, became the catalyst for the formation of their company, KEYSTONE CREATIONS ~ Educational Songs.
Together, they now write and publish innovative Teaching Resources which target Primary School Curriculum through Values-Based Original Songs.
As co-directors of KEYSTONE CREATIONS ~ Educational Songs, they are able to combine their passion for singing and teaching.
The lyrics are laden with learning content and values, hence their slogan: ‘A Lesson In Every Lyric’ ™
Their mission is to continue to provide busy teachers and parents with quality, educational resources.
More importantly, children will learn important Values, Curriculum Content, School Themes and Concepts, while extending Literacy, all through the powerful and enjoyable medium of music!
