Joe Scruggs’ career in educational music came as a natural progression. It began when he utilized his folk music background to create songs for his wife to use in her kindergarten classroom. Seeing how much teachers, students, and even parents enjoyed them, he decided to make his first album — and launched an award-winning career!
With the help of his wife and daughter, who are both educators, Joe has created children’s music with catchy lyrics and professional arrangements that also supports learning.
Songs like “Late Last Night” and “Goo Goo Ga Ga” allow children to explore the world of make-believe, while “The Other Shoe” and “Are We There Yet?” are familiar, real-life situations put to music.
When combined with children’s literature and popular unit topics, the songs enhance lesson plans, offering children a multi-sensory learning experience.
