Rivanna Music Review

Our children and grand children are really enjoying some new kids music in our vehicle. Even I have learned the words to a few, OK maybe more. What can I say the tunes are catchy. I love that the kids are learning while listening, singing, and having fun. That is what is all about. Make learning fun and kids will absorb it like a dry sponge with water. 

From what I can tell these were all new tunes for my children and in all of the years I did child care I hadn't even heard of them, but they would have been a welcome addition to my child care. I look forward to picking up a few more of  Cathy Bollinger's C.D.'s in the near future. 

On the bottom of the post you can see a list of C.D's and where to buy them by clicking on them. You can also get Healthy All Over and other CD's on Amazon.

Established in 1988, Rivanna Music creates tunes that teach. Music therapist, singer/songwriter, Cathy Bollinger infuses this multisensory effect into her songs. Cathy has written children’s music which is so much fun, kids don’t even realize they are learning. Teachers and parents like Cathy’s music as much as their little ones do! 

Cathy Bollinger has been working with children through music for more than 20 years. Beloved by her young audiences, she holds songwriting and teacher workshops, practices music therapy and performs. Bollinger received her Master of Arts in Creative Arts Therapy from Drexel University College of Medicine (formerly Hahnemann Medical School) in Pennsylvania, and can often be found in the classroom, singing with preschool and elementary audiences and helping teachers to use the songs with their curricula. 

Cathy and her business partner, Elly Tucker are committed to helping children by creating tunes that teach social skills, reading skills and other important daily living and school readiness skills. 

The winner of FOUR Parents’ Choice Awards, as well as the National Parenting Publications Award (NAPPA) for children’s music, Rivanna Music has earned ”Parenting Magazine Pick” for the past 2 years and her music has been acclaimed by the American Library Association’s Booklist, School Library Journal and Autism Spectrum Quarterly.
