Music choices to suit Parent & Child

Share Post:

Keeping your kids stimulated with a good tune on the way to school, a play date, an extramural or a family road trip makes it more fun for everyone and research suggests that it is also crucial for child development.


With contemporary pop song content becoming more and more risqué, a variety of age appropriate tracks for little ones are either hard to come by or may not enthuse the driver all that much.

So here are a 5 songs from a variety of genres you might not have come across or considered, to be enjoyed by mommies, daddies, au pairs, nannies and young children alike:

REGGAE: Give Bob Marley’s son, Ziggy Marley a spin with this family anthem.

ROCK: Did you know that the legendary Johnny Cash made music for kids. And it’s good. This one is about dinosaurs. How cool?

ELECTRO: Another song about dinosaurs – this time a Ninja dinosaur! – is from the quirky group: Four Tet. An alternative electronic beat for both kids and adult palettes. Weird and wonderful!

HIP HOP: Flo Rida is all the rage in the UK and this track will give the whole family and friends a “Good Feeling.”

POP: This song by the songstress Jewel, will make you want to organize a playdate for mom and child. (Check out “Sammy the Spider” as well!)

And our own contribution to listenable tunes for kids and parents.

Happy listening, and good luck!

Struggling Artist to Franchisor – Arts CAN BE commercially successful

Statistically: Arts graduates do not make money from their craft Many of us fall in love with the idea of stardom, that big role, the West End, Broadway, Hollywood, Oscars. In reality, the percentage of young artists (I use performing arts as a reference above but the same is true for writers, fine artists and all the rest) who truly “make it”, according to this Guardian article, is less than 2%! In other words, the odds of achieving the top of your game in ‘the arts’ is 98% likely NOT to happen for fully qualified artists. Yikes! Fully qualified lawyers,

Metamorphosis into Buzz Franchising

Adapt or Die Buzz was founded in 2012. We still deliver on the same promise and we still use the same tools; drama, dance and singing for kidz to build confidence, boost social skills, be creative and get buzzing. But wow, has this business shape-shifted, changed, adapted, almost died (thanks COVID) and now, thriving! And that is the essence of business, isn’t it? To adapt or die. It is Darwinian. It is cruel because there is only room for the strong, the persistent, the adaptable… to survive. It IS cut-throat and so it should be.  Illusions about franchising If you told me
