April Soundzania Newsletter

Spring has totally sprung! Taxes are done! and we almost missed the April newsletter 🙂

A couple of news items. First, we had an official CD review by Dan Cohen. Many thanks to Dan for taking the time to listen to Soundzania Elementary School and giving a fair opinion on the CD. Here is a link to the review.
Second, we are going to the Ashland Farmers Market again this year! We’re very excited about that because it is simply a fun time. They have a regular farmer’s market every week, but this one on June 30th is special. Its a kid’s market and kids come out and set up tables to sell their wares. Its great to see them proudly displaying their crafts/produce/creations, etc. We have a fun time playing some music on what I hope to be a gorgeous day in Ashland. Check out the Ashland Farmer’s Market on Facebook.

And now for a shameless plug – we still have lots of Soundzania CDs hanging around. Enough to make a small village, or set the record for CD dominos. So, please if you know someone who has some young kids, might enjoy the music, or just likes good toe-tapping fun songs… please send them our way! On the website, they can check out some sample songs from each of the albums.

Soundzania March Newsletter

Hey – we missed February. oops.
Oh well, Happy St Patricks Day!

Its been quiet in Soundzania lately – that is until last night. We had a “Lets Make Music” night at our church and I (with the help of a couple of other Soundzania alumni, Jeff Pierce and Scott Powers!) led a group a kids in learning some simple instruments. We talked a little about the three simple instruments we brought:
Comb + Wax Paper = kazoo
Cardboard Tube + Stick = drum
Box + Rubber Bands = guitar

We taught each group a pattern on the instruments and then brought them together to play the parts as a little orchestra. The kids were awesome! At the end, after everyone had warmed up, we had everyone do a little jamming and solos all around. Excellent.

Coming up – Soundzania has a few potential shows. We are hoping to help out the local La Leche League in their picnic. We were also asked back to the Ashland Farmer’s Market (which I really hope we can match our schedules on). And last, we’ve got a birthday party coming up in June.

I hope everyone’s doing alright out there. Drop us a line. Like us on Facebook, buy a CD for a friend 🙂

Until next time….

July Soundzania Newsletter

Wow – its pretty hot in Soundzania! But, hey, its summer, I think its supposed to be hot. Time to jump in a pool or through a sprinkler.

In June, Soundzania visited the Ashland Farmers Market. That was a great time! We have some video tape from the show. We edited together a few of the songs and have it here for you –

Where did that funny balloon hat come from?? At one point, we walked on through the farmers market playing “Soundzania”. While we did that, we walked past a vendor from the market that made balloon shapes. He came running up and placed the hat on my head as we were marching by. Awesome hat – Thanks !!

June newsletter from Soundzania

Summertime, and the living is easy….

These past few days have been the most beautiful weather in Soundzania ! I hope you’re enjoying some where you are. With the summer comes farmer’s markets – and they are all around. You should head on down to one and pick up some fresh goodies!

Soundzania has been invited to come play some music for a very special farmer’s market on June 25th in Ashland, VA – The Ashland Farmer’s Market.
The Ashland Farmer's Market

Now, this market is special as it is, but they are doing something extra special on June 25th. They are having a kids day where the kids are the farmers bringing their wares to market. It should be a great time!

So, if you’re local – come on out and enjoy the market. If you’re not – sit back, relax and start enjoying the summer months!

April Soundzania Newsletter

I just ate a bunch of jellybeans, and so have the kids. I also spent the day outside in balmy spring weather. A very nice spring in Soundzania.
Soundzania is always happy to help out a charity that is devoted to kids and families. We’ll donate CDs or schedule a performance if you have one that you’re involved in. Recently, a friend of Soundzania mentioned a charity their family is involved in – the Samaritan House in Ohio. They provide emergency shelter for homeless women with children. Since Soundzania is kind of a long way away from Ohio, I offered to ship some Soundzania On Safari CDs out to the shelter.

Hopefully, the Soundzania discs can bring a little music into the lives of some families in need.

If you work with a charity that helps families and children and would like to bring Soundzania to them, please let me know.

I hope your spring is going great!

Until next time….

March Soundzania Newsletter

Spring is coming – I’m certain – we’ve just had a flood of rain last week and today the kids and I were hiking with only light jackets on!

Spring also seems to be the time that pre-schools want people to come play music. So, just about a week ago, I packed up all my instruments (friends) and brought them over to Good Shepherd Preschool (where my children attended). I’ve included a video clip below for your entertainment or bewilderment – whichever fits. My personal highlight happened as I was showing the kids the CDs I had made and one of them shouted – “I have that CD!” Yes, her mom had recently picked up a copy.

Anyway, I am just about over losing the extra hour of sleep from the spring forward – I hope you all are doing well.

Until next time – sounds good and good sounds

February Soundzania Newsletter

About half the country has had snow in the last week or so – amazing !! Everyone dug out and got their power back on? I hope so.

Here in Soundzania, we’re going to start some more recording sessions in February. The long awaited third album (thereby completing the master trilogy of children’s anthem bop) is making headway.

Once we have any new mixes or rough cuts of the songs, we’ll be sure to share them here on the blog to let you comment and criticize.

Stay warm everyone and if you need to get one of our CDs or a shirt, we’ll share the love a little for February and give you a nice 28% discount (28 days you know). To get the coupon code, you need to subscribe to the newsletter here.

Until next time…. sounds good – and good sounds
