I'm A Professional Bathroom Singer ; )

Those of you that know me, know that I am never without music!  I luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuv music!  All types of music.  I have a very eclectic collection from Dean Martin to Jay-Z, Hank Williams to Chopin on my iPod.  I love to push shuffle and just feel what come on.  I come from a family of musicians~but I consider myself to be a PROFESSIONAL bathroom/car singer.  I cannot read music for the life of me, but have the strange ability to pick up an instrument and play by ear.

I saw this Linky Party today that Amanda over at Teaching Maddness is hosting, 
and had to Jump On It {Fresh Prince & Carlton}.

So, here goes.  
I play lots of music throughout the day in my classroom.  I especially love these...

ANY of the Putumayo discs fit well daily in the classroom.

I play a variety of music for the kiddos including:
LOTS of classical aka our "thinking" music
Frank Sinatra
Bob Marley
Dr. Jean
Greg and Steve
Jack Hartman
Ella Fitzgerald
Jack Johnson

And the list goes on...and on......only to....

Have a great day friends!


  1. These are wonderful selections. I gotta check out that Jazz for Kids CD as well as Putumayo World Music. I am always on the lookout for new great background tunes.

  4. You are so funny! I love that your list has Jack Hartmann right before Ella Fitzgerald! Ha! I'm sure Jack would be thrilled to know he rates right up there with the best of them! :)

    I added your blog to my new list of blogs at Kindergarten Network. Stop by sometime and check it out when you have a chance and let me know if I left out any details you would like me to add.

  6. I am so far behind on my blogging and blog reading! I had to come see what you were up to. The fact that you mentioned you listened to Jay-Z makes me like you even more. I love him. Did you end up going to Vegas? If you did, I want to hear all about it! I WILL make it there next year. I need to start a fundraising campaign.
