Deb Snyder and Philip Bynoe, as PBnDeb, have created a unique CD using their personal childhood experiences, vivid imaginations and musical creativity in a fresh and entertaining approach to dealing with issues children face in "Growing Up." This CD is useful for parents, teachers and other adults in generating discussion, interaction and problem solving with children encountering such issues. Using a musical genre that is familiar and contemporary, PBnDeb's songs show support and understanding of children encountering problems such as shyness, bullying, fighting or entering a new school. In "Bully" Deb recalls several girls calling her "Chicken" as they tauntingly surrounded her, and Philip shares his boyhood dream of playing the bass in "I Have a Dream." "Growing Up" also highlights the joys found in the everyday-going for a ride, visiting the zoo, listening to stories and even exercising. The best references for Deb and Philip come from children with whom they interacted while working with Urban Improv in Boston, Massachusetts. The following are quotes (and spelling) from some of those children: "I like program because we sing new songs. The reason I'm writing this letter is because I want to thank you for helping us. I think you make things exiting and fun." "Urban Improv has helped me use my imagination. Wish we could go there everyday, but we can always use our imaginations so you could be there with us...my want to stand up and sing." "Deby, you're the best friend and you very funy and fun to play with and every time you look at me you have a smile. You're my best best best best friend." "I want you to always remember me. You are sweet like a rose." "I learned that using your imagination is not just for little kids. You're funny. I hope you don't forget me when this program ends. I know I won't forget you." PERSONAL BIO INTRODUCTION Deb and Philip first met in Boston, Massachusetts as members of Urban Improv, a talented group of actors and musicians working with children who must cope with growing up in an urban environment. Deb and Philip left Boston to pursue their individual professional careers, but reunited in Los Angeles. The discovery that both retained the passion for wanting to help children led to the creation of PBnDeb.
