is Dream English?
The goal of Dream English is simple: make educational music that
is not only filled with important phrases and grammar, but is also
enjoyable to listen to. My hope is that people will listen to the
music not only because it is educational, but also because they
truly enjoy the music!
Can I listen to your songs if I am a native English speaker?
Yes! This website is visited everyday by people in over 50 countries,
many of those countries have English as their first language. I
have received many emails from English speaking parents whose children
enjoy the songs as well!
Why do you have most of your songs and chants available
for free download?
I started this site out to sell my music. However, I put up a few
free downloads and had a great response from people. After putting
up my version of Jingle Bells, I got thank you notes from people
in over 30 countries! This encouraged me to put a few more downloads,
then I received more and more thank you notes. Many people said
they aren’t able to buy a CD for a number of reasons, and
my music is very helpful to them, their students and children. This
encouraged me to put even more free downloads.
If your songs are available for free download, why do you
also sell them?
The songs for sale are a bit higher quality mp3’s and don’t
have the web add as heard on the free downloads. The sales of these
CD’s and download packs help me to pay for this website, so
I can continue to bring you great music! If you use these songs
often with your students, I encourage you to buy
a CD or download pack. It will not only help me, but the thousands
of people who benefit from me being able to give away the songs
do I download a free song?
is really easy! go to the Free Download
page, pick a song title you want to check out and go to that web
page. Once you are there, it will have a link to download the song,
simply click on it and the song will download. If you are a pc user,
you will need to right click on your mouse to download and save.
In order to burn it to a cd for class or home use, you have to bring
the song into an mp3 player. If you don't have one, I recommend
Tunes because it is a free download.
How do you write your songs?
Each Dream English song can take up to a few months to write and
record. I start with an idea, then I record a demo version or play
it on my guitar in my classes with the kids. I do this until I get
the song just right for learning, and then I record it for everyone
How did Dream English begin?
I started Dream English in 2007. As an American musician from New
York City I had trouble finding quality children’s music in
Japan that could help my one-year old learn to speak English!
I had already begun writing children’s music, so I decided to take this one step further and make the
songs educational. This and my conversations with other English
teacher friends who were having trouble finding good songs to use
in their classrooms (have you ever tried to get a three year old
to sing all the lyrics to London Bridge?) led me to start Dream
What does the future hold for Dream English:
is to be able to perform concerts of my music to children around
the world. I look forward to seeing all of your smiling faces and
singing along with you!
