“Hi, I’m Scott Welcomme, the face behind the children’s songs and fun characters of Welcomme Wonderland!  I hope you have had a chance to have a listen to some of the catchy songs and meet some of my original characters. I live in sunny (sometimes!) Dorset with my beautiful family and love sharing my passion for songwriting with them.

Beware of that naughty Penguin, Clive. He may seem innocent but he’s not!

The songwriting journey- creating fun songs for children

My songwriting journey started many years ago from the age of about 14. I was blessed with a musical upbringing from a young age surrounded by my siblings . This ‘Von Trapp’ lifestyle helped to encourage and inspire my musical journey. To hear more about my ‘life story’ click here.

For the last 7 years I have enjoyed writing fun songs for children and creating enjoyable, original characters to go with them. I have particularly enjoyed seeing many hundreds of people (young and older!) enjoying singing my songs and adding actions and dance moves to them. I feel very humbled by the many thousands of people around the world who have listened to my tracks via youtube and left very positive comments.

How Popular are these fun songs for children?

Sorry, I didn’t mean to make you start singing it, but since you are now altogether now…. “Snap snap snap snap snap went the alligator! Behind the shower curtain in the bathroom!”

If you haven’t got a clue what I mean then you must hear it! Go to the ‘Buy the songs‘ page to have a little listen….. There are many others that are very popular with kids and adults alike!

 

What do I do when I’m not writing fun songs for children?

When I am not thinking about writing songs (or at an Harris the little grey hippo- Lead character from another one of Scott Welcomme's fun songs for childreninstrument playing or singing) I teach as a music specialist at a Junior school in Dorset for children aged 7-11 . They always give me honest feedback about my songs which helps me improve them and gather new ideas for the future.

In addition to main classroom teaching, I teach as a peripatetic for piano and voice (With a 100% pass rate!)

Over the last 18 months, my role has expanded at school as I took on additional responsibilities, joining the Senior Leadership team, as Assistant Headteacher. This demanding role has developed my wider skills in every sense! 

I used to teach music to the bigger kids too, at a secondary school in Barnet, London. This is where my fun songs for children were first created. I started to gain inspiration from my Niece’s outside of school though storytelling and pure imagination.

I would then ‘try out the material’ with the older children at school. Suprisingly- they loved it! I knew then that there would be no escape from my songs getting stuck in heads of all ages!

 

familyThe last 4 years have been a rollercosater in my life full of lots of lovely memories as my wife Tanya and I were blessed with a beautiful baby girl, Sofia, age 4. In March this year, our family expanded once again, welcoming our second daughter, Anastasia  :)

Having the girls around has inspired me even more to share my songs with more and more people and watching them grinning, dancing and clapping to them reminds me that all the hard work is all worthwhile!

Enjoy listening, singing, dancing to and sharing my fun songs for children with others and hopefully my love of music can continue to become even more infectious around the world!  :-D
