Album Notes
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 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:

More about Charity Kahn:

JAM's founder, Charity Kahn, is a classically trained pianist, flutist, and vocalist who has played and sung every type of music from baroque to bluegrass. She has written countless songs and compositions, and released 3 CDs of original music: firstborn (her first singer-songwriter release), JAM: Music for Movement with Children and Charity and the JAMband: Peanut Butter and JAM. She has taught (The Head-Royce School in Oakland, CA) and tutored mathematics, and taught private piano and flute lessons to both children and adults. She holds a B. S. in Mathematics from Stanford University, and is the co-author of the book, Math and Music: Harmonious Connections.

Charity draws upon her experience as a musician, composer, performer, teacher, author, mathematician, rock climber, and, most of all, mother in creation of the organic and evolving experience that is JAM. Her own kids (aged 4.75 and 1.75) and all the other kids with whom she shares the JAM Music and Movement Experience are her main muses, inspiring such songs as Tree House, Wiggle, We Like Funky, Ridin' the Big Waves, My Body's an Instrument, Kids' Train, and the infamous Creeper Walk.

Mommy likes it too!!
This is a great CD. Every song is completely different. My daughter enjoys dancing to it and I love it too. Its really fun. I would recommend this for any child that likes to dance.


JAM stands for Joy And Music
This cd was my introduction to Charity Kahn's music and now I can't get enough! I own all of her releases and must say that she keeps getting better. A few favorites are "Kids Train," "Major Scale," and "Lay Down My Dear Children." My son and I love her music and love is what you'll find in every song.


Fresh, original, comforting, positive, melodic music
We just don't get tired of this CD. It's more mellow than her newer CDs with wonderful melodies and vocals. Both my kids' all-time favorite Charity songs are on this album. "Upside Down" is my 4 year old's favorite, which he loves to sing upside down, of course, and my 1 year old starts blowing raspberries, clapping, and stamping as soon as he hears the first note of "Your Body's an Instrument".


fun, mellower than her others, good but my least favorite of the 3, if you're choosing which Charity to get.

Get ready to move
Catchy and fun, these songs really do inspire movement, dance, and creativity. The music is a pleasure for adults and kids.

Completely original and yet classic. Must have.
Such a wonderful variety of songs. They move the listener physically, emotionally, and spiritually. It's tough to say wether my husband and I or our 5 & 2 yr olds love it more. No road trips without it!


Wow! What an ingenious surprise!
This venture for families is excellent! I can hardly wait to get together with grandchilden, parents and grandpa for the scarf dance!!! I love Charity's voice, style and music. Check out her CD Firstborn! Each track is 1st rate!!!
