Splish Splash Over the Ocean
Quotes about Identical Harmony's new release DVD 'Splish Splash Over the Ocean' 'The Splish Splash DVD is a family favorite. We love the songs about the ocean and the amazing footage of northwest marine life in action!' Lisa Merrell, Parent 'Lisa and Linda are again melodious, musical, vibrant, and absolutely child-friendly. This program is not just basic TV 'entertainment' with the big 'E'. Surely, it is entertaining, enticing, inviting, but it is also clearly conceptual for the sake of the 'child-self' and world that envelops children's early years, Their growth and development as little musicians, musical thinkers, and thinkers through/via musical experiences are easily enhanced through the quality of the program as you have fashioned it. You are both so right for this work. Congratulations! I am not surprised that you have received an award for this production!' Dr. Patricia S. Campbell, Department Chair, Music Education, University of Washington 'My son, Collin, was so excited. Sunday he watched the DVD 4 times. He insisted on watching it while he played with his toys. We also watched the parent section. We absolutely love the DVD.' Stephanie Young, Parent '..your voices are beautiful and you both have great spirit and joy when you sing. You are both warm and friendly in the program and appealing. The musical numbers all have good rhythms and delightful melodies.' Dr. Dorothy G. Singer Co-director of the Yale Family Television Research Center 'LOVE THE VIDEO! THE GIRLS WERE GLUED TO THE T.V. GREAT JOB!' Tina Franulovich Martin, Music Specialist and Parent 'Amazing, wonderfully entertaining!' Dr. Patricia Kim, Education Director of the Seattle Symphony 'It's a huge hit at our house, surprisingly so because 21-month-old Athena has never sat still for any other video concert (Sesame Street and Pooh have both been panned). I've been grateful that my kid was uninterested in TV, because of the negative effects of sedentary watching. But 'Splish Splash' -- or as Athena calls it, 'Bubbles,' for the opening montage -- is different. Athena does not passively watch. She: --Pushes the DVD buttons to start the show --Calls out what she sees: 'bubbles! Otters! Drum! Swings!' --Stands and dances --Watches carefully how the big kids are moving and signing --Sings (mostly just the tune, but she is starting some words of 'Let Your Music Shine!') I don't know if it's that she remembers with joy attending your concerts, or that your unerring knack of communicating with very young kids appeals to her, but wow -- this is a real treat.'
