Songs for Kids

Robert writes and performs songs for children - sometimes with collaborators.

In the 90's Robert wrote and performed songs for very young children as a member of "The Teds" with Allen Booth and Djanet Sears.

In the 80's Robert wrote and performed child-friendly topical songs as a member of "The Boinks" with Eric Rosser and "human video" Ross MacDonald.
