Music Minute: Jump with Jill

Boom! is a heart pumping, genre-hopping concept album created by Registered Dietitian and musician, Jill Jayne, MS, RD.  With electronic dance music, funk, rapcore, and pop rock, this 7-song EP covers exercise, hand washing, fiber, trying new foods, and mindful eating. Jill’s approach is to use singable anthems to make learning about healthy habits memorable. The music is available on iTunesAmazon, streaming services like Spotify (Artist: Jump with Jill), and the Jump with Jill Store.

I had a chance to review a copy of the CD. It has engaging rhythms that were fun to use with kids in my middle elementary music class. You can get a taste of the music style in the video below.

I like the focus on health that the songs have, and they are energetic enough to be able to use as kid-friendly background music as well, helping kids learn the lyrics and the healthy messages they contain.
