Join our listserv
We have had quite an email community of children's performers and interested people on our free listserv. Monty Harper has agreed to continue managing it for the time being. We talk about performing issues, CD duplication, marketing, philosophical problems, and who has the most laundry to do. We can even help steer parents and teachers to appropriate recordings, and find that song that's going through your head.
