J Edna Mae is a passionate believer in the power of music and the joy it can bring to children's lives. Her vast teaching experience both in the UK and overseas, combined with her Doctoral research into music and education, from the University of Bath, can be heard in each one of these captivating songs. One magical component that J Edna Mae discovered in children's music, was the joy that children feel when they hear other children sing! So she has always invited young performers to join her in singing the songs she writes for children.
'Bounce!' and 'Glitter is Litter!' have both been wonderful family affairs as J Edna Mae is joined by her incredibly amazing children, Josh & Luke, and also by the awesome Ava Zeta Jones (one of J Edna Mae's talented students), who was only 5 years old when she sang 'Glitter is Litter!' They all sing and rap fantastically through pop, reggae, ballads and EDM!
So sing, dance, clap, laugh, rap & whistle your way round these awesome songs and enjoy!
