We are excited to start the new year with a fun collaboration with ELF Learning, a language school, Youtube channel, and publisher of teaching materials for children, based in Japan. Together with Eric, the founder of ELF Learning, we arranged and created a new video featuring the classic nursery rhyme “Rain, Rain, Go Away”.
Sometimes, adapting an existing song can be harder than writing a whole new song yourself. You want to highlight the beauty of the song, yet put your own stamp on it. Nursery rhymes are simple, catchy, and timeless, and unless you want to turn them into something completely different (such as a modern techno version), it can be challenging to find the right balance between ‘too bland’ and ‘too grand’.
