About "EduTunes With Miss Jenny"
Hi, and thanks for visiting "Edutunes With Miss Jenny!" I ("Miss Jenny") began writing songs for my students 24 years ago after attending a professional development seminar. The speaker explained that children learn more, retain more, and love learning through songs. I was so inspired that I began writing songs about everything I wanted to teach. When California introduced its draft for the state standards 23 years ago, I wrote a song to teach each standard to my children.
At that time, teachers at my school really wanted tools to teach these new standards. I conducted a pilot study with 80 teachers (and over 1500 children) in San Diego, CA. Other teachers used the songs in their classrooms and gave me suggestions for making the music truly user-friendly and effective with children.

Edutunes would not be possible without all the wonderful people who have helped along the way. Thanks to my husband, Robert Kramer, who supports me in every way; to my former principal, Suzanne De La Vergne, who encouraged me to get started; to all the pilot teachers who have helped to make songs truly effective in the classroom; to Lisa Lipton, one pilot teacher who has been instrumental in assisting with consulting, songwriting, and product development from the beginning; to Dawn Dershem and Mia Molinaro, two more pilot teachers who have offered tremendous support and guidance; to Bob Fixman, my father, who has given me tremendous support throughout this journey; to my musicians, Randy Renner, David Beldock, and Pierre Grill, for your amazing work; to Bradley Clopton for your graphics; to Jason de Alba for your wonderful designs; to Newton Lim for helping me to write when I injured myself; and to the parents, teachers, and kids who make this business possible every single time they place an order.
