Vincent Nunes “Move, Move, Move” is a CD of fun songs!

Looking for music that will make your little ones want to dance and move?

Vincent Nunes just released his 10th recording of original music for children, entitled, “Move, Move, Move”. I had the opportunity to check the CD out for myself and highly recommend it for young children because it is fun! I also like that young children will have fun moving to these songs!

Run Time: 35 mins

More about Vincent Nunes:

Award-Winning, Curriculum-Based Music for Children His Portuguese father was a professional musician, and his mother was a master elementary school teacher. So it is natural that Vincent Nunes composes and performs original, highly entertaining, interactive music for children. His nationally distributed CDs (listed below) have won numerous awards for children’s music, including a number of ASCAP awards for songwriting. He has performed across the country, and has been featured on national children’s radio. Vincent, who holds a post-graduate degree from Syracuse University, has offered keynotes, featured presentations and workshops regional affiliates of the National Association for the Education of Young Children since 1989. In his performances he is known for engaging the audience with ASL-inspired hand movements. He is dedicated to giving back, having raised thousands of dollars through his music for schools in under-served communities. His newest CD is Move, Move, Move, which is scheduled for release in the summer of 2018. It is terrifically entertaining and continues to reflect Vincent’s commitment to early learners, and their physical wellbeing. “Songs for children should be crafted with intelligence and infused with fun. I call them smart songs for active children,” says Vincent. For Move, Move, Move, Vincent reached out to Dr. Diane Craft, PhD, from SUNY Cortland, an early childhood physical activity expert, to insure that suggested movements are developmentally and age appropriate. .“Among the most rewarding things I do is professional development programs, especially Keynotes and Workshops. I love meeting folks dedicated to nurturing and educating early learners. We understand each other. Our future is in the hands of our children. I can’t think of a more important job.”
