ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Spanish music of Étienne is designed to motivate and reach students with a current beat. His music has won TWO parents choice awards and on the Canadian Independent Music Awards was voted the 2004 favorite children’s artist.

All of the music is designed to eliminate lacks in specific grammatical and thematic structures at the grades K-10 school level - and is particularly effective with the harder to motivate intermediate level students- promoting student comprehension and manipulation abilities.

Described as Hooked On Phonics® meets Schoolhouse RockTM, check out the songs that allow students to grasp and never forget important structures including verbs, verb tenses, conjunctions, prepositions, prefixes, suffixes, adjectives, question words, the alphabet, vowels, phonetics and much more. Étienne has the music that has students "rockin' and hip hoppin'" in homes and classrooms across the world. No objectionable lyrics, but upbeat and catchy tunes.
