Have you ever wanted to write and publish Children's Songs? It's fun, the musical equivalent of writing children's books. Whether you're a musician or a lyricist or a performer tonight's meeting will help you get going in this fun musical genre.

Why Children's music? Which age groups?
What makes good Children's Music? Form, rhyme, musical vocabulary.
Writing a song to a specific theme and make it fun - brushing your teeth, cleaning the kitchen, etc...a
Where is the market? Radio, TV, internet, Music Libraries, local broadcasters.
Ron also has a number of CDs available in a number of genres. You can check out his website at http://www.ronfranklinmusic.com/
