10 Ways to get and keep kids attention

10 Ways to get and keep kids attention is one of my most popular presentations at educational conferences and professional development trainings.

Acorn Song

Have you seen the most viewed Will Hale Tadpole Parade YouTube video?

I play the Acorn Song at the end of almost every one of my concerts. It’s a fantastic way to get kids chilled out after plenty of intense air guitar jamming. This is a fairly wobbly version. It usually goes even smoother. I would like to record a new version teachers and parents can use. This one seems to be pretty popular anyway.

Heartful Harmony

The HEARTFUL HARMONY SYSTEM is my latest project.

After years of preparation I am happy to begin sharing this simple transformative process I have used and developed over decades of personal experience.

Will Hale One Light

One Light, Many Reflections

I wasn’t trying to be a writer. It surprised me when I looked through the stack of handwritten notebooks stored in plastic tubs under my bed and realized, I have written over three thousand pages. It started as writing one page songwriting idea snap shots. I don’t write books, I write pages or at my best, distilled wisdom condensed into a single quote.

With over forty handwritten notebooks starting in 1990, great progress has been made in typing all my original volumes from 2007 – 2022 and stepping into the process of selecting highlights for my first compilation titled “One Light, Many Reflections”

I started sharing my writing on the SoulSpring blog in 2019 until the site closed and all the post were deleted. I will eventually repost samples and highlights.

I write from observation, not imagination. I write one page at a time, with only one to five words per line. The structure can look like poetry but has more to do with the physical limitations of a handwritten page and my desire to emphasize multiple meanings. My Page poems are a combination of songwriting sketch pad and journal.

Please send me a message if you would like to be part of the review team to read, preview, organize and suggest highlights to be included in my first published compilation
One Light, Many Reflections. Thanks! Will Hale

Family Groove

For many years I produced, FAMILY GROOVE a weekly kids music program at KFAI Community Radio

We consistently pushed the boundaries of traditional purple dinosaur “Children’s Music” geared for 1-3 year olds, by providing music that can open the doors of awareness to the unlimited possibilities of music, to blaze a trail for a smooth transition to music kids will never have to outgrow.

You can listen to a full Family Groove program archived here.

I made a Spotify playlist to share some of our favorite Family Groove music. Get your groove on!

I Love Water

I Love Water – Relaxing River – We Stand for Harmony – We Stand for Life

This is one of the best trickling river recordings I have ever heard. It was recorded by professional studio engineers with microphones that cost more than my car! This is the river sounds you can hear at the end of my version of Brokedown Palace on my Grateful Kids album.

A short high quality I Love Water – stereo audio wave recording is available Here.

I am deeply passionate about preserving and protecting our fresh water and encouraging lifestyles more in Harmony with Nature. Please read more…

Legacy – Floyd Wallace

Legacy – Original Piano Compositions by Floyd Wallace (1934-2015)

“Many people die with their music still in them.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes

Thankfully, before his passing February 28, 2015, my friend Floyd Wallace left us the gift of his musical legacy: Compositions crafted though his lifetime and held closely with only a few friends and family. In his final days Floyd personally selected the compositions to be included in this compilation. Through his creativity and generosity, the treasure of Floyd’s music is now available to the whole world. Enjoy!

You can listen to the whole Legacy album by clicking here or visit Spotify and search Floyd Wallace.
