Oran Etkin, a renowned musician and composer, has developed a new method to teach the fundamentals of music in an intuitive, fun and meaningful way to children starting in the earliest formative years of their lives. He has developed games to explore musical concepts like high and low or chords and melody. He has told stories to help children relate personally to great artists including histrocial and cultural context. He has made sure that the instruments come alive, have a personality and literally speak to the children as in track 4, All I Really Want to Do Is Dance, for great music has its own unique personality and speaks to us in the most direct way possible.
Thoughout this CD, you will hear all of these elements - Clara Net waking up and speaking to us in Wake Up, Clarinet! and All I Really Want to Do Is Dance, songs about High Low, walking through the snow, a story about King Henry XIV of France leading into Eh La Bas, and even a new soulful way to sing a classic nursery rhyme in Little Lamb Jam. Most importantly, however, you're hear it in a fun and non-pedantic way to teach the most important lesson of all - that music at its best is full of life, spontaneous and direct from the heart!
