Music Together teacher Christy Burich writes, “I LOVE Halloween and I always look forward to dressing up for classes either as Snow White, Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, Minnie Mouse and even some not so easily recognizable characters like the Egg Shaker of Happiness! Over the years, I’ve enjoyed making a party out of our Halloween classes by sharing stories, songs and jokes and each year someone always asks, “Why don’t you make a Halloween CD?!” So, after 11 years, I finally listened and took the leap of faith! I created the Halloween Hoopla CD in October 2011.” Do the Hookey Spookey with Christy! http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/misschristyandtheweehear2
