Give Yourself a High Five CD Prize Pack Giveaway


Give Yourself a High Five: Winner of a 2012 Parents’ Choice Gold Award:

Drawing on their work with children in local Head Start classrooms, professional Nashville musicians collaborated on “Give Yourself a High Five,” a unique album inspired by the curiosity and imagination of youngsters.

Released in 2011 by the education program of the Tennessee Performing Arts Center, and recently named a winner of the Parents’ Choice Gold Award, the CD features 29 tracks of small-sized songs, percussion dance breaks, and poems for pre-school play and learning.
 

The artists’ varied influences and styles—folk, rhythm and blues, gospel, rap, country, jazz and more—create a rare sound and feel for an uncommon collection which is high on adult appeal and introduces children to a variety of American and international music traditions. At the same time, “Give Yourself a High Five” gently teaches practical lessons about number-counting, teeth-brushing, hand-raising, and more, while encouraging creativity, confidence, curiosity, critical thinking and other traits essential to future success and happiness.
 

The tracks range from one to three minutes long, with easy-to-learn lyrics and endless potential for quiet times, creative movement, and organized interaction with others. Dance breaks encourage movement with sounds of classical violin and Latin American percussion. “A Walk in the Rain Forest,” filled with the sound of falling water and singing birds, gives children a soundscape in which to spur imagination. Familiar nursery rhymes and fairy tales are reinvented to the beats of blues, jazz, rap and rock. “The New Itsy Bitsy Spider,” for example, is pure soul. “Raise Your Hand” is performed like an old-time Western Swing song. “Walk Daniel” is a short, traditional spiritual packed with action and inspiration.
 

Clever color codes categorize the tracks as participatory, story songs, dance breaks, lesson songs, or imagination journeys.

“The children and teachers have fallen in love with this CD. ‘Give Yourself a High Five’ is one of the most cherished CDs I have,” said one Head Start educator, with other positive reviews ranging from “The CD has so many styles of music that every child will have a favorite one” to “We loved all the different genres of music and different adventures each song took us on!“

Shop: You can purchase Give Yourself a High Five on iTunes  (SRP $9.99) or CD Baby (SRP $15.00).

Win: One lucky winner will receive a Give Yourself a High Five Prize Pack which includes the copy of the CD and Give Yourself a High Five activities.
