Welcome to Episode 18 in my 2024 Monday Music Matters “Song-A-Week”series of stories in memory and in honour of my daughter, Kait

This week’s feature is a special take on the “ABC Song” that just about every child learns in their early years.

But this one is a bit different. I wrote this version to help young budding musicians learn musical terms – allegro (quickly), pianissimo (quietly),  staccato (short/detached).  

I also wrote 2 versions of the song – one for Canadian little learners “zed” and one for American little learners “zee” (next post)

The song is sung by my longtime studio partner, Greg Geeves’ son, Luke Geeves who was 12 at the time.

Music teachers take note!  This is a fun way for your student to learn musical terms. Feel free to share.

You can read the first 17 stories & hear all the songs on my Stories page:

Enjoy the beautiful artwork created by Jessica Bell and her 2 sons: Aiden, 11 and Isaac, 8 for the song & story.

The first story, “Malaika”, gives you a bit of a background of why I embarked on this 52 week journey.
