He is a member of the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada. (SOCAN)
Seri composed the Rockin' Phonics A-Z songs during a teaching assignment in an international school in Bangkok after noticing that students that students were responding to music styles beyond the traditional nursery rhyme melodies used in other phonics programs. He tapped into music styles such as rock, pop, dance, theatre, reggae, funk, gospel etc and composed, recorded and professionally arranged 26 original A-Z songs that generated a lot of enthusiasm and improved phonics pronunciations from his students.
