"From the start, it was easy to see that you love music and kids! Your songs are uplifting, informative, and fun! Your energy is refreshing, and I left the workshop with a number of creative ideas of how to reach my students. Thank you!"

--Rodney Wallace, Music Teacher, Little Rock Schools, AK

"Hi Marla, I attended your fabulously fun workshop at the Molloy Conference last Saturday and purchased the 3 CD's. I love the music and have been looking at your web site to coordinate activities with the songs. I plan to use "If You Know How to Count......" and I will be dancing to the music. Maybe we will even do a 'Conga Line'!"

--Barbara Pollock, ESL Teacher, Port Washington, NY
