CHILDREN, PARENTS, AND EDUCATORS ALIKE ARE RAVING ABOUT OUR CD!
THE MOSAIC PROJECT is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization. All proceeds from CD sales go directly towards our programs. We work towards a peaceful future by uniting children of diverse backgrounds, addressing issues of difference, and building self-esteem and community in our unique human-relations outdoor school.
The Mosaic Project Presents: Children Songs for Peace and a Better World highlights our unique musical curriculum including original songs about diversity, empathy, conflict resolution, and peace. Our positive messages are communicated in a poignant, respectful, fun way.
Our well-loved songs have been played on the popular San Francisco Bay Area radio stations KFOG, KPFA, and KPOO. While our music targets a 4th and 5th-grade audience, we have found it is hip and catchy enough to appeal to people of all ages, including teenagers and toddlers. Crossing many music genres with contagious melodies, and featuring songs in several languages, this album truly offers something for everyone. Not only is our music "cool," it is an extremely effective way of teaching about important issues:
"The use of music is VERY effective. Your songs are WONDERFUL parts of the curriculum and will have lasting effect." - Lesley Bell, Teacher
" I liked learning the 'I' statements and learning about how other people might feel in certain situations, but my favorite part was learning and singing new songs every night at campfire." - Kalah, Mosaic Student
"I LOVE the songs! Fun and educational with great meaning! It was wonderful to see everyone dancing and singing together." -Kim Martin, Teacher
" We all join in singing together to make peace among ourselves." - Katie, Mosaic Student
"I still to this day have the songs in my head, over and over teaching me these important lessons."
- Lydia, Mosaic Student
