Why Back the #MoreSRBB Project?

Elizabeth hoping to make #MoreSRBB!
Elizabeth hoping to make #MoreSRBB!

The WHO

Hi! I’m Elizabeth, founder and creator of School of Rock-a-bye Babies (SRBB)!

The SRBB Story began just over 8 years ago when, following the birth of my first son, I decided to create a unique music education program for children.

Over the years I have created a LOT of original, high quality, and fun educational music, games, and stories ABOUT MUSIC, THROUGH MUSIC, for children and the adults who learn & listen alongside them.  I have grown, nurtured, and developed a broader SRBB pedagogy and curriculum through teaching - hugely popular! - boutique music classes and events in London, UK.  During this time I have taught nearly 6000 children, developed an incredible support base and recorded my first album of SRBB music, School of Rock-a-bye Babies, 'Volume 1'

The WHAT

I have a TON of SRBB content already created, but not recorded or otherwise produced.

I am proud of what I have created on the SRBB journey so far, children (and adults!) really love it, and I believe there are no other music education programs for children from birth to seven years out there.

I am deeply passionate about the music education program I have created through SRBB - it is now time to share it around the world - it’s now or never! (If I don’t do it now I may fizzle out from creative frustration!)

The WHY

I NEED YOU!

I am reaching out to our ever-growing fan club for financial support to MAKE MORE SRBB REAL! 

I have got the content, I have got the fan base, I have the method for distribution; the only thing I need now is THE MONEY!  So...I am putting out all the goodwill and abundance vibes I can muster to RAISE AT LEAST £10,000K (£300k would mean I could do it all in this next year!) to PRODUCE & DISTRIBUTE more content globally.

Here is a list of all the SRBB content already created that needs to be recorded (audio and visual):

  • 70+ original songs to professionally record 
  • 70+ music videos to professionally film 
  • 80 classes to professionally film for five different age groups 
  • 3+ Children's Music Theory Books to print 
  • 10 original hand puppet/stuff animal characters to produce
  • Infinite merchandising spin-offs to manufacture ('All Is Well (With My Cowbell)' hoodies, anyone?!)

Here is the approximate BREAKDOWN of the costs for producing and distributing this content is:

  • £7-10k - one full albums (35-40 mins in length) 
  • £35-50k - five full albums 
  • £60k - five more full records & 3 professional music videos 
  • £80k - five more full records, 6 professional music videos, Children’s, & 3 Music Theory Books printed 
  • £100k+ - all of the above a LOT more!

The HOW

1) LAUNCH MY KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN!

If you are reading this then this step is complete!  Whoop!  TeamSRBB and I THANK YOU, hugely, for your backing! 

2) RECORD MORE MUSIC

I have been in the recording studio these past two months (and will be back in again in November) recording material for at least one full album (probably two!) in time for Christmas!  I am working with some real pros - hugely talented musicians and producers - and the sound is going to be phenomenal!  This real music, played with live instruments, and peppered with humour; music for children that everyone will want to listen to.  With more money I can record the entirety of my existing catalogue of material.

3) BUILD A SUBSCRIPTION DISTRIBUTION PLATFORM THROUGH SRBB WEBSITE

Once I have more material produced to distribute, I will make it more easily accessible to consume through a new online subscription service operated directly through the SRBB website. 

This service will function like a lot of other subscription services you are probably used to (think Spotify, Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc.).  Anyone will be able to access a small amount of material for FREE (anytime, anywhere) with varying subscriptions options available for small monthly fees allowing the user to stream and/or download all the SRBB audio and video content available that month.  This will be the highest quality children’s music and videos accessible through a curated, advertising free site, with more content relating to interactive books, games, apps, and merchandise being added to the service as and when it is created.

The CLOSE...

I am giddy just thinking about it all that is to come! 

I have an unstoppable team working with me (shout-out to Veronica, Lauren and all former Team SRBB players!), so there is no reason SRBB's next steps won't fly!

A home for my material that is online and accessible to all is what I have always dreamed for SRBB...

a) it will get everything out of my head (which is busy at the best of time already), and 

b) it will allow me to free up my ‘in person’ time to do even more pro bono teaching and events for the charitable causes that I am passionate about and bring more creative education through music to children who don’t have access to any.  A WIN FOR ALL!!!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT, in the past, present, and future!

THE WORLD well and truly NEEDS #MoreSRBB!

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge to the production and distribution of more School of Rock-a-bye Babies material is TIME!

There is a LOT of material to get made, but only ONE OF ME and only two other, part-time, members of my team...without proper funding there is never quite enough time...

The more funds raised will help me and TeamSRBB ensure that all recording, printing, and website augmentation for the subscription service will be done in the most timely and efficient manner. THE CONTENT IS CREATED, WE JUST NEED THE MONEY TO DO IT!
