How children learn a language has become one of the most heavily researched topics in the education arena. Helping parents and primary teachers lay a strong foundation for learning means teaching children to listen, speak, see, read, and write forty-four sounds of the English language separately, in words and in sentences. Connie Anderson, aka Grandmalou, adds one more element. Sing! "Music is language learning" is her mission; "Musical Language" is her method. At Grandmaloutunes, she delivers original content in three sections; PreK, K2 and a special section, Musical Poems. Not Your Grandma's Phonics musical poems help lay a strong foundation for learning the English language. In addition to original artwork and character names that help children identify and recognize a letter-sound, the poems feature an original listening strategy using a musical instrument. The images, music elements, the musical strategy, and the audio-verbal phonics format open all of children's pathways to learning the English language!


Two sections of the website offer twelve original and traditional songs with images. Some of the songs have downloadable pdf's of the lyrics in rhebus format. There are also some short movies, one of which models the concept called Musical Language. This document is also available as a lesson plan for teachers to understand the shared elements of music and speech and why music is a powerful tool to affect young children's early learning skills. The third section is the Musical Poems that are organized and delivered in five groups throughout the school year. The purpose of these poems is to help parents and teachers lay the strong foundation for learning the English language.


In addition to publishing the set of musical poems in 2008, Connie Anderson has worked on a few other projects that are defined by the same guiding principles of the shared elements of music and speech. She wrote and published Not Your Grandma's Phonics Musical Story in 2013. It is still available at the Apple Book Store in iBooks Author format. Including her current website, she created and helped design two other educational websites; Connies Classroom and Our Space 4 Kids. Recently, she wrote and published two songs for her grandchildren about their new pets, Sodapop and Juna. Now her work is focused on managing the Grandmaloutunes website; managing the subscription service in order to deliver her products as educational teaching tools for parents and teachers.

In March of 2020, I submitted a RFP to the SBIR to receive a Phase I award. I had organized a team of four experts to help me: a tech consultant, a research coordinator, a developer, and a business manager. We did not receive a Phase I award.

In June and July of 2020, as a retired teacher, I volunteered to evaluate the framework for the NAEP 2025 test. I submitted a nine-page evaluation in time for the July 23deadline.

Mission Statement:

Music is language learning.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

Some 2015 research at Northwestern University and the University of Maryland has proved the powerful effects of music and music strategies as young children are developing and learning a language; I have applied the research in my professional work for young children.
