I wish it were Friday…

Today was back to doing the Phonics songs. But…. I couldn’t get anything done!! It was back to sitting down, playing the keys, pressing the buttons but nothing came out!! What a contrast to Friday!!! Wow, it’s amazing the difference. I wonder if the cloudy weather had anything to do with it?

So back to a few old techniques for getting ideas, by looking at other people’s songs. And it’s all in the hook. Just one note moved here or there makes the magic! For example the Black Eyed Peas song, all it is is four chords, F / C / Dm / Bb – the trick is that the C chord is a C/E to give a descending bassline. It is magic isn’t it! I also had a listen to the Kids English CD, wow, there are some really good songs on there, I wish they’d release it as an album!

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. And when I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. So I'm sharing it all with you now...
