The CD, JAM: Music for Movement with Children, was born out of Charity Kahn's JAM Sessions -- music and movement classes for little people and their big people. All songs have accompanying movements...one need only read the track list to get a feel for the kind of creative play these songs will inspire in your kids. Themes range from animals to trains to body-as-instrument to counting to yoga to the infamous Creeper Walk. Your kids will love to listen and move to these tunes at home and in the car...again and again!
Charity's beautiful voice and ingenious harmonies permeate the recording, as do the originality and insightfulness of her songwriting. Instruments include piano, bass, guitar, mandolin, flute and percussion. Appropriate ages: 0-infinty.More about Charity Kahn's JAM Sessions:
