Magical Monday #25: Disney Music You Adore and the Man Behind Those Beloved Scores

Today is composer Alan Menken's 64th Birthday.  What could be a more fitting way to celebrate this occasion than with some beloved Disney music?

  Alan Menken composed the songs you find yourself singing from animated Disney films like The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Pocahontas, Tangled, and so many more!  How different our favorite Disney films would be if it weren't for the talent he has brought to shaping their soundtracks.  
In this interview Menken shares about his experiences, and the process he uses to compose his hits.


Happy Birthday, Mr. Menken!  Thank you for the magic you have brought to the Disney films we adore!

  1. I LOVE Disney music!!! When I started learning to play the piano last year, one of the first books I bought was a big note piano Disney book:) This was fun hearing from the person behind the songs I play. Thanks for sharing! You always have such interesting posts.

  2. Ahhh You're so sweet and know all these things! Happy Birthday to him!
