Our Mission

Naturally you can Sing Productions is dedicated to supporting parents and educators in bringing music and song to their young charges. We are fully committed to helping children unlock their individual sounds, to learn to blend their voices with others and feel the nurturing effects of song and music on their small frames, minds, hearts and souls. We believe that if children start singing whilst young, they will sing forever.

About Us

Naturally you can Sing Productions is owned by Sven and Christina Schünemann. We remain dedicated to nurturing this business by continuing to keep the songbooks current and available and are working to expand the  collection  with more song books and items that support music  development for children. 

Christina attended Waldorf schools from pre-K through 12th grade and comes from a family of dedicated Waldorf educators. She is an accomplished musician, having started violin at age 7 and now plays viola at an advanced level.

Sven plays the most important role of all: that of the music enthusiast and audience member. He supports Christina, Aurora (budding cellist,  pianist and vocalist) and Allegra (pianist and vocalist) in their various undertakings, cheers loudly and brings flowers - always. 

Mary Thienes Schünemann  - Creator of these wonderful songbooks and CDs was a committed  musician, teacher, mother and homemaker.

Mary's musical mission lead her to found Naturally you can Sing Productions, designed for people who have a  desire to connect or re-connect to the joy of singing and bring this  joy into the lives of their children and young charges. Mary passed away  in 2007 after a long battle with cancer. She was 47.

Testimonials

"What a delicious way to bond with your child and increase brain power all at the same time!" 

- Jane M. Healy, Ph.D., Educational Psychologist and author of "Failure to Connect: How Computers Affect our Children's Minds."

"Mary's championship of the power in the singing voice will live on. Singing together affirms my belief that unless we all begin to sing together, from within each of our faiths, and from the life-affirming depths of who we really are, we will not be on this planet in one hunded years." 

- Pete Seeger, Folk Singer and Peace Activist

"The importance of children hearing the voices of their loved ones in song and verse cannot be overstated. There is just so much fun in these books, you will want to learn all of the songs." 

 - Marianne Alsop, Lifeways North America board member, California Coast Lifeways Teacher Training
