Here’s a lovely article on my live show “Crossing the Mid-line”. The photos aren’t very clear, so I’ll add them in underneath. 🙂 Many thanks to Caitlan Johnston for the photos!
Check out this fantastic collection of songs for kids, put together by the amazing Sagan! There’s a wide variety of covid related songs that are from all around the world. And sure enough, the list includes Sing Along With Tony! YAYYYY!!!!!!!
Here’s my take on a classic nursery rhyme! This is a great song to help develope memory skills in children and a simple song to learn English vocab for animals! Check out my crazy lock-down hair!!
It’s taken a while, but finally my new album is out, released today. It’s a simple collection of my favourite classic nursery rhymes. Obviously, I’ve given them a special little Sing Along With Tony twist!
Check out Incy Wincy Spider and Friends, she is joined by Quainty Dainty Ladybird, Grumpy Plumpy Bumblebee and Dirty Gerty Cockroach. All of these characters have quirky Tony character voices to bring them to life. It sure was a lot of fun to make! And if you need a work out, see if you can keep up with The Grand Old Duke Of York, it gets faster and faster and faster!!
If you like laid back reggae beats have a listen to Mary Had A Little Lamb. I think it’s my favourite track at the moment. The vocals are smooth, the instruments are gentle, the arrangement is clean, it’s a very easy song to listen too. AND it includes all 3 verses, which is a bit rare these days.
If you’re teaching English to very young children you should check out Ran Rain Go Away. I used this with an end of year school production in France. There’s a nice little instrumental break between the simple and repeated lyrics. This was where we had the children do a little dance! The first verse is children dancing, the second verse is children dressed as ‘Mummy and Daddy’ dancing to a Hip Hop beat and the final verse is children dressed as ‘Grandma and Grandpa’ having a boogie to some 1930’s jazz. It was a great success, very cute.
If music really is your thing, you could try teaching Row Row Row Your Boat. It finishes by singing in a round, so two groups sing together, but start at different times. The resulting harmonies are lovely. But it can be difficult for youngsters to grasp.
Anyway, there should be something for everyone on the album. 🙂
Here’s a link to Spotify, PLEASE CHECK IT OUT!!!!

You can listen to the song already on YouTube if you can’t wait! A bientôt!
