VIDEO: Chilliwack music teacher pens children’s song about COVID-19

Debra Krol hopes to spread a fun message about handwashing and staying safe during the pandemic

A Chillliwack music teacher is reaching out, virtually, with a fun message about hand cleanliness.

Debra Krol, owner of Tiny Tinkles Music Studio, has written and recorded a song called Can’t Catch Me. She’s loaded it to Youtube, along with a link to the book it was inspired by, called How to Defeat the Icky, Filthy, Creepy, Slimy CORONA MONSTER!.

Krol is a B.C. registered music teacher and specializes in classes for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. Like many other business owners, she’s had to pivot herself in the face of COVID-19. She closed her studio space in the Chilliwack Mall and began teaching online to keep herself and her little students safe.

She’s also written an album of baby music, and is working on music curriculum for teachers, along with several other musical projects.

Krol has also worked in local schools with children in the past, and has 25 years experience teaching music.

She posted the video on her studio’s Facebook page this weekend and is encouraging people to share it with their children.

“Let’s fight this monster, please share with your littles,” she says. “I hope you will feel encouraged to share and that the story and song will help you to feel like together, we can beat this monster who has affected each of our lives. With strength, and courage and hand washing we can help to keep our little ones safe.”
