Brilliant & Distinctive Music
Outstanding collection of French music for children. At home or at school, my children LOVE to sing along. We even use it as our bedtime background music. I especially like the feature where the entire set of songs is replayed sans words so that my children may sing along to the music instead. We are eagerly anticipating Volume 4...

Kids and parents start singing right away!
When listening to Muriel's songs, kids and parents start singing the lyrics and the melodies right away, as if those were belonging to them. Muriel's songs fit exactly to kids' music comprehension and understanding. The lyrics are connected with their dreams and imagination. Simple but pertinent. The melodies seem to be accessible even if they are sophisticate.

What a relaxing way to start the day!
We listen to the CD many mornings during breakfast and it sets the tone for the day! When we sit down at the table, the kids plead for the “Escargots” song. It makes us think of a spring wind bringing fresh scents and birdsong through the windows. Muriel's voice seems to be floating on clouds. What a relaxing way to start the day!

Her compositions are catchy
My three and a half year old daughter had been studying French with Muriel for over a year. Muriel is a marvelous teacher. I've never before encountered a pre-school class that is as thoroughly figured out and consistently taught as her French class. It's a focused period for the children and the structure allows time for group songs and to each taketurns (talking about colors, numbers, and special topics) with Muriel's guidance. There's no english spoken (truly the way language should be taught at all levels) but nothing about this is disconcerting for the kids. Muriel's teaching is through song and movement. Her compositions are catchy and she includes many classic French children's songs too. The repetitive format means that children can join her class and quickly feel at ease with what's going on. When Muriel brings out the different props (hand puppets, a parachute, or even feathers) before each song, the students know their cue and are ready to participate. Well beyond being a fun activity, Muriel's teaching has promoted an enormous interest in language and the relationships of words. My daughter has retained an enormous amount and I often hear her at play singing one of Muriel's songs.

Children sing this song with gusto!
I have been acquainted with Muriel Vergnaud for several years. She has taught French Classes at our center since January 1997 for children ages two through five. Her class is taught through songs, music, movement and art. It has been a pleasure to watch how the class has grown in popularity over the years. Muriel puts a lot of preparation into each class and her dedication is evident in the happy faces that arrive for her class each week. Muriel is popular with both children and parents. Her class starts and ends with a parade of children singing a song about little train; the children march around and sing this song with gusto. Their voices can be heard throughout our center! Muriel’s enthusiasm and love of teaching French is so profound that parents who signed their children up for French when Muriel started here several years ago, are returning to enroll younger siblings of the students who worked with Muriel at our center in the past. Muriel’s approach to teaching French is loving and comprehensive. She has done an excellent job helping young minds absorb the French language. I recommend her work and I am pleased that she has shared her talent with the families at my center. If you have further questions, I will be happy to discuss Muriel’s work with you.I have been acquainted with Muriel Vergnaud for several years.

For him it was like an elixir...
My 3 children are now seven, four and one. My seven years old daughter, was in Muriel’s class when she was three years old and my second one was just born. We spent only about 8 months in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, NYC, but the children know the songs from Muriel’s tape by heart and still enjoy listening to them. She has a very beautiful and soothing voice and sing so clearly that it is easy for them to learn. For a very long time, my second child had to listen to Muriel’s tape every night before he went bed he found her voice so soothing. For him it was like an elixir. Now, he seems to have a flair for the language and very good pronunciation.

Unusual, simple and memorable songs...
It is exactly because of opportunities like this that we live in Brooklyn... I have been taking my 23-month-old daughter to a music and movement class in French in Boerum Hill. After two classes, I was blown away by the quality!

The teacher, Muriel, with her enchanting singing voice, expressive gestures, puppets, balloons, bubbles, parachute and rattles, connects with children's natural love of movement and music. The songs are her original works, unusual, simple and memorable; layer after layer gently teaching counting, colors, vocabulary, etc...in French. I feel that I ought to describe this class in very poetic terms ...it is awe-inspiring and perfectly orchestrated, not a moment is wasted, perfectly geared to captivate toddlers and preschoolers... not to mention all the adults in the room, who all have child-like smiles on their faces. After class, it feels like we've participated in a Cirque du Soleil performance!

For French-speaking toddlers, it would be an equally wonderful and enriching music and movement pre-school class.

The kids just love the CD
The kids just love the CD. They want to hear it all the time, they sing along with it and it's infectious. I think it's great for grownups too. So we don't play it as if to support the teaching, we rather play it because we like it!
