Parents of toddlers most likely know at least one song from Daniel Tiger’s NeighborhoodThe quick little ditties are written to worm their way into children’s heads in an effort to teach about everything from hand-washing to taking care of a rabbit.

Collectively known as VooDoo Highway Music, Graeme Cornies, James Chapple, and Brian Pickett sat down in their home studios to tell us about how they have both adapted Fred Rogers’ original, “snappy new” melodies and created their own motifs, all in service of the youth of today.
