My background, as the arranger and producer of this album for children, has come from classical training with degrees in music from New England Conservatory, Juilliard, and Boston U. My career has taken various paths in music. While I've performed with classical concert ensembles, I have also composed world famous jingles such as Folgers 'The Best Part of Wakin Up' and pop songs for recording artists and films. I have an overwhelming love and respect for all music of the world, and I know the value of being exposed to as much of it as possible. I hope this little CD serves to introduce young children to the classical style.
