OK…I want to be taken seriously as a singer songwriter…
So, why would I ever write music for kids?
Hmm…let me see…
Here are just a few quick reasons:
- They’re really cute
- It’s fun to watch their faces light up
- A kid is an imaginative gift from God
- Nothing like music to bring out their cool dance moves
- They just LOVE music
I could go on an on about how I can write things that don’t make sense at all in the adult world…but kids get it. Or how a kid doesn’t typically care if someone’s watching when they dance. Or how a kid is just as happy with a song about a dinosaur as a song about a political party…because it’s simply about the music. Music for kids is just that simple.
Kids remind us (or certainly should) how important and precious life is. I say we keep as many around as possible.
