Growing with Music

"Hilary's music reflects a strong understanding of how young children grow and develop, and of their interests. She uses music in wonderfully creative and exciting ways that ensure that as children enjoy themselves, they also learn. The simplicity of Hilary's music is in its charm… Hilary has produced an original wonderland that invites participation, is relevant, memorable and fun".
Kay Margetts, Lecturer in Child Development and Special Needs at Melbourne University, Victoria, Australia

"Hilary knows a great deal about what Children like to hear! My
2 year old clapped and bounced. The 6 year old was able to
easily pick up the tunes and was keen to participate in the "fill-
in-the-gap" segments with his own version. The 8 year old loved
the lot and sang the lot and remembered words and songs for
the rest of the day".
Liz Porter, Occupational Therapist

"Our experience with your recordings has shown that the more
often we listen, the more we can ALL join in and enjoy. You
have provided us all with hours of pleasure. Thank you".
Dr Jane Bywater, mother of two primary school age children

"CDs have been sensational - the kids love it… they just lap it
Music teacher of 4-8 year olds

"I taught in remote Aboriginal Communities and used your
music to teach English. It was wonderful - the children loved it!"
Pre-school Teacher

"On Mother's Day the mums and children were sitting in a circle
looking at each other while the children sang - it was just magic!
Your song did that!"

Preschool Director

"I love your music and the children love it. It is very simple and
teacher-friendly, but I can extend it when I feel more confident.
It is lovely to have a recording I can slot in and know it will be
appropriate. You obviously understand this age group really well..."
