Alina Celeste Music on YouTube
How have we missed the magic of Alina Celeste’s YouTube Channel?
Skilled musician, experienced early childhood music educator, and master of facial expressions, Celeste is quirky, offbeat and totally in tune. Her clever interpretations, keen understanding of a child’s sense of music and humor, add delicious layer after layer to nursery rhymes and songs. In Celeste’s hands, “Jack Be Nimble” has become an anthem to persistence, “Little Bunny Foo Foo” a lesson in good behavior; her “Itsy Bitsy Spider” is a standout. And there’s lots, lots more.
Alina Celeste knows the importance of simplicity and consistency when appealing to young children. Her set’s white background, her wardrobe and her props work together to instill familiarity in her YouTube Channel. Additions or changes (a video, a duet, animation) are done well, and in context.
Laugh, sing, clap; repeat. For viewers of all ages.
