“Calm Down Boogie is brilliant. Betsy Rose’s music is a rare combination: fun, catchy and profound. The perfect way to teach children the values of kindness, presence and finding your center. Highly recommended!
-James Baraz, Author of Awakening Joy
“The music that Betsy Rose offers at my Mindfulness in Education conferences is an inspiration. Offering simple, yet profoundly deep lyrics and tunes, she gives children the lessons on awareness, emotional intelligence, and compassion that many teachers strive in vain to impart.”
-Daniel Rechtschaffen, Omega Institute, Mindful Children
When I first heard Betsy sing, I was frankly bowled over by the her combination of lovely voice, super melody and lyrics, and sheer good-humored good-heartedness. Years later, having also had the privilege of teaching with her, I continue to feel that she is unique and precious contribution to families, anyone who loves music, and – yep, pun intended – world harmony.
-Rick Hanson, Ph.D., author of Buddha’s Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom
“Over the years in various settings I have really appreciated Betsy’s ability to offer high quality teaching in a light hearted way. Her songs can drop people out of their heads and back into their bodies and hearts.”
-Amy Saltzman, M.D., A Still Quiet Place
If you want someone to bring heart, depth, laughter and tears of inspiration to your program, contact Betsy Rose as your keynote speaker or workshop leader. I highly recommend Betsy.
-Margie Carter, Early Childhood Instructor, Author and Consultant
Your visit to our elementary school was such a highlight for me, our students and staff. The information about the brain freeze under stress really told it in a way all children could relate to. And, your knowledge of the different developmental ages was evident …It make me feel peaceful just knowing that you are sharing the messages of peace, happiness and love to our children.
-Greta McCue, Guidance Counselor, Mashpee Elementary School, MA
Betsy is one of those people whose presence makes each meeting with her memorable. Her sense of humor and of pathos, her gift of self-revelation, and her clear commitment to personal, familial, social, environmental, and spiritual action all honor the meeting place of sacred and profane.
-Anne Maiden Brown, Ph.D., The Tibetan Art of Parenting
Not only entertaining and informative, but truly helpful, real tools for parents to use to nurture peace. We all agree with another participant who wrote, “Betsy Rose is AWESOME!!

Betsy Rose is gifted as a presenter, singer and love-centered personality. She made the whole conference for my friend and me.”
-Early Childhood Education Conference Participant
My 3.5 year old daughter and I absolutely love your music! You have provided us with countless hours of singing, both in the car and at home. She is now totally fascinated by the concept of equanimity and she often asks me to give her examples of difficult situation that pertain to her life at home and at preschool, and then she tells me what response would show equanimity!
A 4th grade class along with a kindergarten class taught your songs to the whole school for our monthly Responsive Classroom assembly. Now all the classrooms are using your CD. They are using “My Mind Is A Clear Blue Sky” for their quiet time reflection in journal writing and/or after recess.

“I can’t tell you how much I have gotten from Betsy Rose’s song “I Am Breathing”. What wonderful idea to have a song with breathing built right into it.
Wonderful workshop!! I didn’t want to leave!!
