Annie Lynn, President and Chief Composer at  AnnieBirdd Music, LLC, began writing songs when she was 14 years old, while acting in Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer’s Night Dream” with the Germantown Theater Guild in Philadelphia. Asked to write “a nature song” by the show’s director, Annie wrote “Listen,” and the song and the show were subsequently filmed and shown on CBS. “I remember being this excited 14 year old kid, so psyched that the first song I had ever written was on TV,” Annie reflects now. “If someone had told me that 30 years later, I’d be recording that song with my own child, I would have laughed! Now I have whole communities of school-aged children singing my own choruses back at me, and it really is a great feeling….” 

This same great feeling carries over into many of Annie’s songs. Her children’s singles, “That’s All There Is,” "Listen - a nature song" "STOP THAT! - A Bullying Prevention Song" and "New School" have been featured and favorably reviewed on the Peabody Award-winning children’s radio program “Kids Corner with Kathy O’Connell” on Philadelphia’s WXPN, with rebroadcasts on Sirius Radio. The songs remain in rotation. 

A Collaboration between Annie and songwriter/engineer/producer Chris Arms, recently produced a multi award winning CD called  "Annie Lynn, Chris Arms and Friends...No Time for Hate and other Songs for Schools."  This CD is ideal for schools, choirs and homeschoolers especially, and contains karaoke versions of the songs for assemblies, and offers youtube video links with practice videos and lyrics. 

 Topics include: 

* bullying prevention 

* tolerance and acceptance of others 

* identity and self 

* determination and motivation 

* going to a new school 

* nature conservation, including a new music video for Earth Hour! 

Annie & Chris hold 17 International Songwriting Awards, including most recently, Finalist in the Mid- Atlantic Song Contest for Kidlit song "Zombies Don't Eat Veggies" with Megan and Jorge Lacera (Studio Lacera/Lee and Low Books, Publisher) and GRAND PRIZE in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest for "Best Children's Song" genre. 

I won 80% of a recording studio (I had the rest), plus instruments, and became a full-service recording studio, complete with two sound engineers and a crew of talented musician friends and beautiful, funny, talented children. All are paid. All receive letters of recommendation. 

Annie also volunteers, time permitting, as a music assistant in her school district, and teaches her songs. She even took one elementary school choir to the Harrisburg State Capitol to sing her songs for the Senators and Representatives on an Environmental Conservation & Bullying Prevention Platform. 

Annie's music can also be heard featured on : 

*National radio   *podcasts   *cable/Network TV    *business websites 

*Book Trailers  *TEACHER GUIDES THAT GO WITH BOOK/TEXT  *Rodeo (YUP, you read that one right!) 

Her song, “The Key To My Heart,” was licensed as music for an educational video to promote reverse-mainstreaming in Pennsylvania schools. The song instantly became the lynchpin for the entire effort, and generated a surprisingly large number of requests for copies from teary-eyed parents.
