Welcome to Music Audio Stories!
My name is Anna-Christina! I am the author, narrator and creator of Music Audio Stories! My music based audiobooks are fun and educational for Early Learning, preschool and children aged 3+. Not only do they encourage children to take part in the story through drawing, song, and dance, they inspire them to act out the scenes and be part of the magical journey. Children love to hear the stories over and over again, as they discover new things each time they listen. This is something I have tried and tested myself during my own Story Time at nurseries, schools and libraries all over London.
Music Audio Stories have been created to entertain, teach and instil positive messages in children, helping them to build confidence to fulfil their dreams.
My unique musical audio stories help your children stimulate their productive senses and imagination. They compliment Key Stage 1 and areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage which makes them a brilliant tool for teachers and homeschoolers, and they make those long car journeys fly by! They are also wonderful for children with impaired vision or vision disabilities.
What makes my audiobooks different
One of the things that makes my stories special from other audiobooks you may have heard, is the strong themed, original classical music behind the narration. Unlike other children's audiobooks, the music continues throughout and is an essential part of the stories.
If you listen carefully, you will notice that the music is phrased with the narration and character voices, making the stories almost seem like songwriting rather than your standard audiobook.
Each story has its own benefits and is tailored towards certain topics and themes. They promote environmental awareness, mindful living, kindness towards animals and each other and following your dreams.
Cartoon style voices are combined with Sound Effects to create movement in the sound. Try listening to Music Audio Stories with headphones on!
Apart from enjoying the stories together with your child, you will find many benefits. The audiobooks enhance mental well-being, build confidence and develop imagination. They teach your child the importance of friendship, cooperation, tolerance and team effort with everyone no matter how different they are. They inspire movement, problem-solving, build social skills and promote concentration.
Your child will learn about animals and insects, colours, numbers, nature, and magic! There are specific stories about the Solar System and littering. There's even a story that features the sounds of New York City and an Ice Hockey game!
Each story has excellent lessons which are taught in such a fun and simple way, children don’t even realise they are learning a lesson!
Preschool and Homeschooling
Music Audio Stories are great for preschool use and homeschooling. They provide an entertaining tool to not only stimulate children's listening abilities but also improve their visualization skills. Due to the success of my Story Time at London Libraries, families at my Workshops requested a package from me, and so I decided to create two Storytime Packages!
Both packages come with a CD of my popular audiobook 'Billy Joins the Circus' and a beautifully illustrated booklet with fun pages and instructions on how to use the package.
My Preschool and Nursery Package is perfect for stimulating listening and observation skills while enjoying group storytelling and fun activities! Encourage your class to listen, sing, dance and draw with this activity package which can be used over and over again!
The Storytime with Anna-Christina Package has been created for parents to use on rainy afternoons, during the holidays or simply on the weekend when you want to encourage your child to be creative, and will provide endless hours of fun and entertainment.
You can submit drawings to my Kids Corner and have the joy of seeing your class or child's drawing in my art gallery! Include first name, age and the date and post the artwork directly to Facebook or Tweet it @musicaudiostory.
