Need a little fun for your preschoolers to rock out to? Pop in the new Preschool of Rock CD, Everything Makes a Sound. The album is jam-packed with fun rhythms and songs taken from the inspirations of life and sound.
Everything Makes a Sound features singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Michael Napolitano who, as a second-generation drummer, lives and breathes rhythm. Michael, founder of the popular New Jersey-based Preschool of Rock music classes, is well aware that rhythm, an intrinsic aspect of childhood from patty cake to jumping rope, provides the motor for individual development and a framework for social connections with other kids.
"A former music specialist at The Blue Man Group's Creativity Center (now the Blue School) in New York, Michael Napolitano is founder of Preschool of Rock, a curriculum-based music program designed to adhere to National Association for the Education of Young Children standards." -- 2012 Parents' Choice Awards "Fun Stuff" review of Preschool of Rock's Dance Party
A tremendous influence on Michael Napolitano's music was his association with Blue Man Group. He spent eight years in the organization's creative production department, working closely with its founders in the areas of music, sound, and research & development. Michael's experiences with Blue Man Group during this period of dramatic growth and creativity -- making records, traveling the world, collaborating with world-renowned artists -- had a major impact on his Preschool of Rock recordings and on the props and instruments he uses in Preschool of Rock music classes.
When I told my son, who is preschool-age, that there was a Preschool of Rock album, he instantly got excited. "A CD for me!" He was under the impression that his older and younger sister could not listen to the album since they were not in preschool. I helped him realized that even though the band has a fun name that he can relate to, EVERYONE can relate to the music that is found on the album which means it must be shared. The songs are fun, funny, energetic, and funky. My daughter specifically wanted me to mention that her favorite song is the Cupcake Song. Not only is about yummy cupcakes, but my kids really enjoy running around and stopping just like the song's chorus tells. I have to say it is pretty funny to watch!!
Everything Makes a Sound will be available at CDbaby.com and iTunes December 4th
