The songs have been written and arranged by musician and teacher Jane Carr. She uses professionally trained singers from Europe's leading pop and rock school and a variety of professional musicians in the recordings. The real orchestral instruments include harps, pianos, strings, woodwind, brass and percussion supported by guitars and synthesised sound. Considerable care has been taken to ensure that the music is of a very high standard. Children are drawn into the songs through an array of spectacular sound effects, from rushing wind to a rooster and a rocket. Sound Education draws on enormous experience of introducing toddlers and young children to the magical world of early learning through songs and music. The importance of music in a child's formative early years is well understood by the world famous Yehudi Menuhin School of Music in Surrey. Headmaster Nicolas Chisholm said; 'Music is at the very core of human communication. Children respond to music even inside the womb and it plays an extremely important role in their early development. At the Yehudi Menuhin School we pursue excellence in music and the high quality of Sound Education's CD will give young children the very best introduction to the wonderful world of rhythm and melody'
