Peter Alsop is an American children's musician whose songs try to help kids deal with life. The range of subjects includes fear of sleep, dealing with loss, dealing with invasion of privacy, being called "gay" for showing emotion, gender differences, individual tastes, dealing with disabilities, and respect for others.

Alsop's lyrics sometimes deal with subjects related to sexuality: "It's Only a Wee-Wee, So What's the Big Deal?", "It's My Penis", "Hopelessly Heterosexual" and "Don't Stick Your Hand Down My Pants Just 'Cause We're in Love". These songs appear on disc two of a double CD collection entitled Sex and Sexuality.



The album Wha'd Ya Wanna Do? won the top award from NAIRD that year, while Wake Up! won the NAIRD Indie Best Children's Award.

Joint efforts

Alsop teamed up with Bill Harley to record the album Peter Alsop and Bill Harley In the Hospital, which deals with concerns children may have while sick. These include "Will people forget me while I'm in the hospital?" and "Why don't the doctors take the time to explain what they're planning to do to me?" The album includes a song to help children deal with grief and loss, and a story about a four-legged octopus who has to deal with teasing over her disability.

Alsop has also teamed up with John Ritter for the DVD Wake Up!, which deals with safety concerns such as abduction and abuse.

Personal life

Alsop was born and raised in Connecticut. He studied at Trinity College and went on to Columbia Teacher's College. For a time, he worked with emotionally disturbed teens in Maine, and with other children in the Bronx.

Alsop currently lives in Topanga, California with his wife Ellen Geer (daughter of Will Geer). They have two daughters, Megan and Willow.
