The Guitar Lullaby
Stories and Songs for Children
“The Guitar Lullaby” is a music project inspired in the special bound between parents and their children. It is a collection of songs, written for voice and classical guitar, that reflects emotions such as love and happiness, being perfect for a moment of family unity. “The Guitar Lullaby” is an opportunity for music education as well. The children are naturally introduced to basics of music characteristics like pulse, melody and dynamics. The sound of classical guitar, singing, and laughs will fill the air in this wonderful moment shared by children and adults.
