As an adult, I’ve studied voice, acting, theatre, applied music therapy, child development, and much more at prestigious training schools throughout the Hollywood/Southern California area. Most notably, my vocal coach is the renowned David Coury, whose clients include famous “Top 40” recording artists whose names you would instantly recognize. In fact, Mr. Coury has been awarded special honors from many California officials for his work in music, voice, and speech therapy.
He is also the genius who personally produced my “music therapy” CD, Let’s All Sing With Miss Brown.
The music on the CD was written especially for therapeutic purposes by Mr. Coury’s gifted colleague, William Malpede.
I've happily worked alongside school children from all walks of life, all ages, and all skill levels. I'm a featured actor and singer with
A Wish Your Heart Makes – the famous theatrical entertainment company based in Central California that boasts thousands of happy clients.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“This CD is a great collection of familiar children’s songs with a contemporary sound. The words are easily understood and the booklet with all the songs represented makes it easy to follow along. The selections include marching songs (great for spontaneous parades in the living room complete with pet schnauzer and her chew toy) as well as songs with a less lively tempo.
Both of my grandchildren (ages 5 and 7) listen to the CD over and over again. When asked to choose their favorite two songs they couldn’t do it. They could name every song without looking at the titles but they loved all the songs. I highly recommend this CD to anyone who works or interacts with children.
Parents will love it because it will provide many hours of wholesome listening. Grandparents will love it because of the familiarity of the selections. This CD is a must for teachers who are interested in introducing traditional songs to children.”

Ashley Brown’s CD is a collection of classic children’s folk songs that prompt and encourages singing and movement. Many of the songs are favorites not only with children but also with the developmentally disabled population of all ages. I shared some of the songs during my music therapy sessions at the Porterville Sheltered Workshop and at a group home. These adult participants loved this CD and had so much fun! They responded immediately by singing, moving, and dancing to ‘If You’re Happy and You Know It’ and ‘He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands.’ These classic folk songs have been part of my repertoire for years and I was very impressed with the singing and modern, upbeat arrangements. I like how the songs were arranged in several styles such as blues/jazz, marching, and gospel. Cool instrumentation using the fiddle, accordion, minor chords, and sound effects throughout. Lots of subtle learning going on! I highly recommend this CD for not only children but for anyone who works or interacts with the developmentally disabled.”
Wow! Miss Brown really hits it out of the park with this CD! As a former preschool teacher for a bilingual (French-English) preschool, I can tell you that this would truly be an asset in any classroom! It really peaks their interest in other languages, too!
My children (ages 4-10) listen to this CD over and over, singing along and acting out Miss Brown and the other characters! We knew the songs by heart within the first few days. It is so much fun in the car with the kids. I recommend this to all my fellow mommies and teachers.”
I am a friend of EJ Stapelton. I own 3 child care centers. EJ sent me a copy of the Miss Brown CD and I wanted you to know the children LOVE it! It is our number one requested CD during our music and movement time!”
Miss Brown’s music and her voice is glorious! The songs she sings will delight and bring joy to not only children’s hearts, but to their parents and grandparents. Baby boomers will remember all their own favorite childhood songs – good memories! ‘He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands’ and ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ will especially touch your hearts. As an educator for 36 years, I especially appreciate the wonderful, wise and loving life lessons that Miss Brown teaches children through her music. This music elevates ALL our hearts as we recall our own past childhood musical memories and share these happy moments with our own children and grandchildren. Pass on the grand tradition of great American music! What an outstanding gift to give to our children and for generations to come!”

My students love listening to ‘Let’s All Sing With Miss Brown!’ A student, specifically a child with Autism, can be upset upon arrival to school, the CD comes on, and the child is instantly calm and engaged in listening to the music. Miss Brown has done a fantastic job in creating a CD that is entertaining, enjoyable, and FUN! Any-time learning can be made fun, progress is sure to follow as evidenced in my students with limited verbal skills in my classroom. Finger plays inspired by the songs, as well as the engaging rhythms for physical movement have provided many learning opportunities. I mentioned the student’s love of the music, but the adults in the classroom are thrilled with hearing music that they remember fondly from their childhood. ‘Let’s All Sing’ is a true musical delight!”
Let’s All Sing with Miss Brown’s children's nursery rhymes CD makes you want to get up and dance!! This exciting children’s CD gives my favorite childhood classics nursery rhymes a bit of a fun new twist. So, get out your dancing shoes and CD player. My girls and I had a fun time singing with each of the different styles of music. The music allows us the opportunity to enjoy swing, pop, rap, classical and more. So go ahead and dance away! I am sure you will have as much fun as we did.”
