I’ve had quite a few people who’ve seen the dramatic movie trailer music I’ve recently produced (and the DC Stargirl scoring I did last week) and saying
“I didn’t know you composed & produced music too!”
The thing is, this is what makes Genki English different.
These aren’t your average “kiddy songs” you find for free on Youtube.
The same techniques that I use in writing movie trailer music, where we have to “sell” the movie to the audience, are exactly the same techniques I use when writing the Genki English songs in order to “sell” English to the students in a completely over the top and cool way.
It’s the same techniques used in advertising music where companies use music to get you addicted to a product, I use the same ideas when I write and produce the Genki English music to get the kids addicted to English and the new English phrases stuck in their heads.
Shoes, Fortnite & Tom Cruise?
Genki English makes you cool 🙂
- A few years ago a famous shoe company ( Camper shoes) used one of the Genki language learning songs in their TV ads as they wanted to use the Genki energy to sell shoes.
- The online game Fortnite used the backing music from the Genki Disco Warm Up in their disco updates a few years ago.
- Plus of course Tom Cruise’s co-star in the Last Samurai, Koyuki, was also using the Genki English “How are you?” song in her TV Show.
Genki English isn’t your average “kiddy songs” music. I write and produce the Genki songs with all the same skills and techniques I use for all the other music productions I do.
If you haven’t already, give it a try in your classes and add some of that movie level energy, I think you’ll be surprised at the results! 🙂
P.S. Yes, I will be back to writing more Genki English songs very soon. The movie trailer music projects have just kept me a little busy this year!
