Use Your Tummy Official Music Video

I am filled with happiness to share my latest artistic adventure – the music video of my song Use Your Tummy

 Filmed at Madison Academy of Music with some of my best kids (ironically for a song about kids behaving badly), this song and video is a humorous reflection of the pains and rewards of being a music educator. It's my first time editing a narrative video like this, I'm sure you can spot many rookie mistakes but I hope the final product is still entertaining nonetheless. 

Special thanks to Samantha Marie Chan for helping with the filming, Yana, Anoushka, Yun Yang, Yun Yu and Aoife for your participation, and Morgan Law once again for producing the music with me. Please enjoy the video, I hope it'll bring you a laugh in the new year!
