If you offer children fun and love, they’ll respond.

In my 23 years of working with children and music, in nursery schools, elementary schools, day camps and library programs, and then performing in theaters and concert halls, I discovered music’s power to reach and teach children.

My work follows the essence of good children’s music as envisioned by my dear friend, teacher of communications, producer, and advisor Jean Harrison. My songs promote self-expression, relationship-building skills, listening skills, awareness of values, and insight into possibilities and options.

Ron Harrison, Jean’s husband, a film composer in his own right, served as arranger for three of my albums. Also, their son, David Harrison, served as arranger for one of the albums. Ron and David’s expertise made my music rock!

I’ve recorded 5 children’s albums and was nominated for two Juno (Canadian Music) awards for Best Children’s Album (Listen to Me 1981, Jim and Rosalie At the Music Factory 1982).

I’ve released two compilation albums of my music, Journey to My World and Imagination Station, for streaming and digital download.

Early Childhood Education (E.C.E.)

For 10 years I instructed Early Childhood programs in nursery schools and day camps. I ran programs at a Library system in North York, giving classes
on music and the arts for ages 3-5.

I taught a 16 week program to E.C.E. undergraduates at Sheridan College (a community college that graduates E.C.E. teachers) on Sparking Creativity in children through music and the arts.

While recording albums and giving concerts across Canada, I presented to Faculties of Education in various Universities around the country.

I also published a music and activity book for children.
