Hit Songs From Developmental Music Classes: JEREMY PLAYS GUITAR Releases 'ROCK-UCATION" Music + Education = Rock-ucation "We can build a better world, better than a roller coaster ride." Follow up album to award-winning Use Your Words; New EP features a sample from Rock-ucation Classes, secretly teaching kids language and social skills through music. New York - One of the tasks of parents and teachers alike is to teach young children to 'use their words', to work together, to respect one another's differences, and how to feel good about themselves. But this task is not an easy one. Kids often struggle with these concepts, and can have difficulty finding the words to express themselves when upset. It can be particularly hard to use language to identify how they feel, and come up with those words in the moment. By taking these lessons and creatively putting them to catchy music, the repetition of singing along translates into natural and organic learning. "Rock-ucation" a six song EP, is a unique collaboration between early childhood specialist, Lizzie Bicknell and preschool music specialist, Jeremy Zmuda (aka- Jeremy Plays Guitar). The highly anticipated EP features original songs for kids from six months to six years. Rock-ucation follows Jeremy Plays Guitar's "Use Your Words," winner of Parent's Choice, Nappa Honors and Kids Music awards as well high marks from parents, teachers and critics alike.

A NATION OF MOMS - "If you are a parent, teacher or therapist, you NEED this CD in your toolbox...or, CD player. " The music was so successful in giving kids language and skills to navigate common social situations that co-creators, Jeremy Zmuda and Lizzie Bicknell, created classes around the music - 'Rock-ucation Classes'. Now offered in multiple locations (and pre-schools)in New York City and Miami, the 'developmental ' classes are quickly catching on for parents who want to include a more educational or skills-based component to the typical mommy- and-me music classes. The new EP, Rock-ucation highlights some of the class favorites. The EP, the classes, and the curriculums are all products that created by Rock-ucation, Inc, whose mission is to develop music-based educational products that can be used in a multitude of environments, closing the gap between special needs and typically developing kids, and most importantly, make learning enjoyable and fun! Further illustrating this idea, the EP comes with a free, downloadable booklet, a colorful storybook highlighting the lyrics to the song "I Like You' and including an interactive worksheet for kids. The booklet reinforces the concept of how friends can like different things, and yet still like each other. It playfully models a back-and-forth social conversation, of friends discussing their differences. The EP 'Rock-ucation' is a a great addition to any kid's music collection, with positive messages for kids set to musical styles from punk rock to folk.
