The truth is that honestly, I don't really know where they come from.
Every day in my life as I am running from one end of my house to the next, picking up toys, doing laundry, pushing around the vacuum, clipping helmets, unwrapping bandaids, checking emails, making snacks, driving my kids to and from school, there are a lot of things swimming around in my head!
Because my business is music, I make a conscious effort to catch songs as they swim by me. If I were a painter, I would keep my eyes open for visual ideas that I found interesting.
My children are constantly in motion, constantly singing, drumming, chanting. A lot of the ideas that materialize into songs used for classes comes from them! I hear them as I am going about my day and encourage them to make music by joining in on what they are singing. Some of this turns into songs...For example the driving song Vroom Vroom Beep Beep that I used for this semester's classes is 100% a creation of Pache's! Up to the Red light, Green light parts.
How do I do it? I guess I keep my ears open, keep a recording device handy and get poised, get ready to catch something in Motion!
Bye for now.
