Book 3 of the Ruhi Institute is now being used by Bahá'ís around the world for training teachers of children's classes. Each of the 15 lesson plans in the book includes a song. These songs for children's classes are presented below with very simple instrumentation, in the hopes that teachers of children's classes will be able to learn and use the songs. There is also a "karaoke" version of each song for people to sing along. UPDATE: I've finally taken the time to make things easier for you; the first link below will give you the zip file with all the songs in it.
I think live performances have always been my favorite aspect of working in music, because the emotional commuication with the audience can be so clear and intense. This is especially true of small, intimate house concerts like the one that was recorded for Live @ Erica's.
This was my first CD, the best songs from my late teens and early twenties. I think this album is mostly about figuring out what it means to be a human being. I used to lay awake at night wondering why we couldn't just be perfect to begin with (Sometimes, Lord Take This Soul). Eventually I came to believe it is the struggle that makes perfection worthwhile (The Earth and the Eagle).
