Whether you’re a parent, grandparent or favourite uncle, capture your child’s personal story in a bespoke song created by West End composer and Pippa’s Poppets founder Pippa Cleary. In collaboration with acclaimed Musical Director Mark Collins, your song will be recorded, orchestrated, mixed and mastered like a release-quality song you’d hear on the radio. Consult with Pippa on lyrics and, if you have the means to record at home, even feature as a vocalist yourself. Whether it’s a funky dance number, catchy pop song or belting Disney ballad in the style of ‘Let It Go!’, we’ll be sure to deliver the perfect song your family will cherish forever. It may not be possible to all come together for a big birthday party, but you can still make your family's day with this extremely special and personal present.
Dedicated to your child
How It Works
Chat to Pippa about what style you would like – Disney, pop, musical theatre? Would you like a fun, up-tempo song everyone can dance to? A heartfelt, beautiful ballad your little one can belt out in the style of ‘Let it Go’? Tell Pippa all about your child and family, share stories, anecdotes and personal messages so you can agree what the lyrics will be together.
Pippa will create a first draft acoustic version on the piano to check you are happy, making any changes necessary until the lyrics are perfect.
Recording & Arranging
Pippa will work with Mark to create the perfect orchestrations and arrangement for your song, as well as recording vocals from her home studio. Or, if you fancy yourself as something of a singer and have the means to record at home, you can feature on the song yourself!
Your song will be mixed and mastered to a professional West End standard.
Your song will be emailed to you as an mp3 or wav file. You will also be given the backing track version of the song as well.
Piano only version £125
Fully orchestrated / produced and mixed £200
Fully orchestrated songs will be produced in collaboration with Musical Director Mark Collins.
