Juliette has been writing children's songs since she was a child herself. Re-inspired by her two daughters' childhood, and the toddlers in her programs, many songs on Kitty Vacation were brought to life. Kitty Vacation is a fun CD with songs about what kitties do on their vacations, the animals who drink sweet water from the Egyptian Nile, and an easy rapping song about her family's loving dog, Doogie. Juliette performs family concerts and offers parent and child workshops all over California and is now expanding across the United States. Read What People Say About Juliette and her Music? Carrie Levin, Homeschool mom to Joshua (11) and Yuri (8), CA 'My preschoolers loved your tunes. I will always remember how they wanted to hear your lively music and whimsical songs again, again and again. I will treasure the days of singing 'Around and Around', 'I Wanna Chihuahua', 'Going to the Zoo', and 'Great Big Earth' just to name a few from the 'Around and Around' CD. I love the essence of your lyrics and music - where it speaks of mother earth, the whole child and the animals on this planet. Juliette's music nurtures a gentleness, awareness and sensitivity to the young and growing spirit of the child's world.
