OUR MUSIC VIDEOS
FRIEND IN ME
"FRIEND IN ME" is a song I wrote to help children cope with bullying and loneliness. It is also a song to help them feel more self-reliant. My Dad always taught me to have a friend within myself and it has always held me in good stead. Like all "Sammy & The Sparks" songs, "FRIEND IN ME" is written as an affirmation. The song is designed to encourage children to:
- Be more self-reliant.
- Enjoy their own company.
- Cope with bullying.
i love me
"I LOVE ME" is a song I wrote to help children sustain and grow their confidence. Like all "Sammy & The Sparks" songs, "I LOVE ME" is written as an affirmation. The song is designed to encourage children to:
- Think about and appreciate their own, unique beauty.
- Teaches them the difference between confidence and arrogance.
- Encourages them to see the beauty within other people, without seeing an absence of beauty within themselves.
BRINGS ME JOY
"BRINGS ME JOY" is a song I have written to help children listen to their intuition whilst still listening and respecting the opinions of others. It is a song to help them say no to things that feel wrong to them, helping them be true to themselves. Like all "Sammy & The Sparks" songs, "BRINGS ME JOY" is written as an affirmation. The song is designed to encourage children to:
- Say no.
- Be connected and rooted in their own sense of self.
- Do what they LOVE!
I have written "BAD BUBBLES" to help children cope with bad thoughts and negative feelings.
It is a beautiful lullaby for your children that acts as a sort of musical meditation. It teaches children that they are not their thoughts and that they are simply experiencing those thoughts. It encourages them to simply be the spectator of their thoughts as if they were watching bubbles float by. By doing this, when they are feeling overwhelmed, they are able to sit comfortably knowing those thoughts will soon pass... like bubbles!
the worry monster
"THE WORRY MONSTER" is a song about anxiety. When we talk about anxiety here at Sammy & The Sparks, we refer to it as The Worry Monster. The Worry Monster, despite being so scary and smelly, is actually there to look out for us. He pops up asking us questions like "are you sure you can do that?" "what if it goes wrong?"... he makes us worry because he cares! His cruel and mean questions are actually said out of kindness. We encourage children to reply to their Worry Monster with a... "Thank you for caring Mr Worry Monster, but this is something I have to do, want to do and CAN do!"
