Thank you, for your interest in Lightning’s Lessons, Vol. I, featuring, Blues All-Stars.
Teaching your little ones and the curious on multiple levels is what Lightning’s Lessons ("LL") is all about.
Our mission is 2-fold:
1. To assist in teaching young children and curious minds basic learning concepts.
2. To inspire and ignite an early love for Roots/Blues music in a fun and memorable way.
Lightning's Lessons brings you a dynamic multi-platform learning experience! Vol. 1 targets PreK to 1st grade and consists of eleven original up-tempo/engaging songs accompanied by colorful illustrations in our lyrical sing-along book*.
Music lovers, and readers of all ages will thoroughly enjoy this multi-platform experience! Read along (participate), and sing-along with our all-stars while flipping through the pages and listening to our soundtrack. Vol. 1 outlines basic learning concepts which are perfect for reading aloud and along with your children or in the classroom. This combination can assist in spelling, literacy, and memorization, as it was thoughtfully constructed to produce a positive learning environment and encourage participation. So enjoyable, your children will forget they are learning!
Along with our all-stars, our bunny rabbit host 'Lightning' (and cast of friends) will take your children on a learning journey focusing on: the days of the week and months of the year, directions (North, South, East, and West), counting, shapes, manners, eating healthy, the seasons, ABC's, a blues story, and more!
Not only will children have fun, but adults will, too! Parents, we proudly introduce world-class musicians who will inspire you to sing along with your children. So, join the fun…Snap your fingers, clap your hands, and do the shape dance!
