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 to children, helping them to build confidence and fulfil their dreams. Each Music Audio Story has its own benefits and is tailored towards certain topics.
These unique musical audio stories help your children stimulate their productive senses and imagination. They are great for school use and homeschooling and make those long car journeys fly by. They are also wonderful for children with impaired vision or vision disabilities.
Music Audio Stories have received outstanding reviews, are highly recommended by parent bloggers, awarded 5 Star Ratings on several book review websites and have been aired on children's radio shows in the UK and in many countries abroad.
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.
Cartoon style voices are combined with Sound Effects to create movement in the sound. Try listening to Music Audio Stories with headphones on!
The benefits of Music Audio Stories
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, flowers, 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!
School Use and Homeschooling
Music Audio Stories are great for school use and homeschooling. They provide an entertaining tool for parents to not only test their child's listening abilities, but also stimulate their imagination and improve their visualization skills. I know that parents are always looking for new creative activities to do with their child, and due to the success of my Story Time and families at my workshops requesting a Story Time Package from me, I decided to create one!
You wanted it... you got it!
The new Storytime with Anna-Christina Package comes 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.
You can submit drawings to my Kids Corner and have the joy of seeing your child's drawing in the gallery on this website! Make sure your child's first name is written on the front of the drawing with their age and the date and then post them directly onto Facebook, Google+ or Tweet it @musicaudiostory.
