Grow Your Own Music
Amy Conley is in demand as a performer and teacher of music for families. The director of Music Together of Milford & Greater Manchester (NH) since 1997 and a preschool music specialist since 1984, she has spent most of her adult life singing with and for children. Amy's recordings feature gentle vocals that appeal to children and adults, song choices that reflect her commitment to the inner lives of children and beautiful arrangements on guitar, banjo, hammered dulcimer, fiddle, concertina, piano and percussion. Sound effects add interest and suprise. Grow Your Own Music reflects ten years of Amy's work with preschool children. She has included her students' favorite songs along with her original ones. The first half of the CD contains action songs, fingerplays and dances. The second half is suitable for rest time. Many preschool teachers have found this recording to provide a perfect balance of 'doing' and 'listening' songs for the classroom or home.
