Everything makes a sound, and when you’re little it’s a pretty cool thing. It starts with the early coos and quickly moves to pot banging and more. We even applaud our infants’ burps. Sound is big with the little ones. One very astute dad has tuned into this and created a healthy outlet to funnel your children’s zest for noise away from screaming contests.
After extensive collaboration with Blue Man Group, singer/songwriter/musician Michael Napolitano created Preschool of Rock as a new form of children’s music class. The success of Preschool of Rock speaks for itself. December 4th marks the release of the third Preschool of Rock album, “Everything Makes A Sound” which allows all of us who don’t live in New York of New Jersey to enjoy the experience.
This album is musically tight, clean, and fun. The songs cover a good portion of a preschooler’s world with songs that emphasize family, imagination and activity. I loved hearing Red doo-wop in the backseat, I loved the warmth in the Family Song, I loved the imagination and tribal beats in Safari Song, and I loved the silliness of Cupcake Song. But instead of picking a favourite song I think what I loved the best was Michael, truly a kid himself; he really gets the preschool vibe and conveys it in a fun and controlled manner in his music. It’s a great recipe for engaging youngsters without sending them off into crazyland.
