Explaining art through song

March 31, 2009

“I am an early childhood consultant, educator and author. During my time in and
out of the classroom, I will testify that there is definitely only ONE Thomas Moore.

“Thomas’ music is positive and encourages children to feel good about who they are. With a bit of imagination, Thomas’ songs can be incorporated into reading, mathematics, science, and art.

“Our children began their days with Dr. Moore’s ‘Good Morning’ song and for a closing circle song, we might be dancing the Humpty Dumpty Dumpty. His song, ‘At the Easel,’ helped me explain the importance of open-ended art to parents.

“We moved together to Thomas’ movement CD, and his song, ‘I Like Me,’ was used during our Pre-K graduation.

“But, I am one of the lucky ones. I have met and witnessed Thomas first-hand. We have become friends.

“As a friend, Thomas gives 100%, just like he does with his music. For me, Thomas has brought a special magic into my life, as he did into my classroom. Listen to his music. You’ll be glad you did!”
