ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
\"Songs For Koolkidz\" is a winner of a Parents\' Choice Approved Award! Great for grades K-6!

Musicskool Records is a new independent label dedicated to making age-appropriate and parent-friendly children\'s music and videos. In 2001, we launched our label with the release of SONGS FOR KOOLKIDZ™. At this time, our products are available through our \"Songs for Koolkidz\" website, at CDBaby, at our live shows and at local stores in NYC. However, we are currently looking forward to reaching a larger and more diverse audience through worldwide distribution.

KOOLKIDZ™ originated as a vocal performance group made up of 6 multi-ethnic boys and girls ages 10–12 taking piano, guitar and voice lessons at Fort Greene Music Scene in Brooklyn, NY. While working on their first album, SONGS FOR KOOLKIDZ™ the students learned the art of recording and performance. Their CD and Music Videos are filled with inspirational messages and positive lyrics. The KOOLKIDZ™ concept has found it\'s way into schools and local communities bringing children together through song and dance. We would like to see more KOOLKIDZ™ across the country! Contact us on how to start a KOOLKIDZ group in your community.

The original KOOLKIDZ™ performed together for five years. They have performed at Peace Day 2000 in Boston, Mass; at the Million Mom March in Washington, DC on Mother\'s Day, 2000, and in Brooklyn. NY on Mother\'s day 2001; the World March of Women 2000 at the United Nations Plaza; at the \"Week Against Violence\" sponsored by Million Mom March and the YWCA; at a fundraising event for A.I.D.S. research at the Ethical Culture Society; at the conference for \"Uniting for Racial Justice\" at Hunter College, NYC and at the Jacob Javits Center for Kwanzaa Fest 2001.

The KOOLKIDZ™ were a must-see, performing live at local Brooklyn events such as: \"7th Heaven\" street festival in Park Slope; Fulton Art Fair, and the International African Arts Festival in Bed Stuy; and of course on their own home turf in Fort Greene Park at all the family events. A great show for both children and adults! You can also catch the KOOLKIDZ™ on BCAT cable shows such as \"Brooklyn Review\" and \"Access Kids Power\", as well as Channel Thirteen\'s \"ZOOM\".

The SONGS FOR KOOLKIDZ™ album has received radio airplay on WWRL and WBAI in NYC, including a live show featuring the KOOLKIDZ™ performing live on the air. The KOOLKIDZ™ have proudly performed in three music videos of songs featured on the album, being aired weekly on BCAT. These wonderful music videos are available on DVD.

Lonnie Hampton, Band Director, Park Slope Elementary School, Bro

Great CD! Every teacher and student should have one!
The Koolkidz CD is an educational tool that students and teachers should have in their possession. Students are made aware of topics such as tolerance with anti-drug and anti-violence themes. The songs introduce as well as instruct the students on how to be self-motivators. The lyrics are beautifully crafted and the music is uplifting, not only for inner-city kids, but for kids around the world.

Miss "M", Music Teacher, Palm Beach County, Fla.

The Koolkidz CD has different songs for different ages, very useful in schools!
As a music teacher I have been using the Koolkidz CD and music videos in the classroom for the last few years, I choose different songs for different ages, a very useful tool! Everytime I play the CD, and they hear the first song, "Positive", the kids immediately start singing and dancing! When I don't have a lesson plan, I can always count on the Koolkidz CD and videos to interest and excite the children! They love the lyrics, they love the beats, and they love the songs because they are all performed by children! I also want to say that the "Be Somebody" music video is the best children's music video I have ever seen ... and that's the truth! No classroom should be without the Koolkidz! Thank you so much!

Charlotte Lovely, South Grade Elementary School, Lake worth, FLA

Excellent, educational, fun!
"As an elementary school teacher, I think your KOOLKIDZ album is an excellent learning tool for the classroom. I use it as part of my curriculum. Each song has a positive message and is an inspiration to the children. Each song can be used as a lesson plan. I have the students write out the lyrics and discuss their meaning. I highly recommend "Songs for KOOLKIDZ" for grades K through 6.
It would be wonderful if these messages could reach more children ..."

I wholeheartedly endorse "Songs For Koolkidz"!
"As a teacher in the Public School System for thirty years, and now as a daycare and pre-school provider for five years, I have always used music to enrich literature, math, and language arts. I have been using " Songs for KOOLKIDZ" as part of my pre-school learning program. The songs are fresh and playful and each have their own positive message that leave the children wanting more and more. I wholeheartedly endorse "Songs for KOOLKIDZ".

We love you KOOLKIDZ and we want more!
"Thank You for sending us your KOOLKIDZ music videos! My 4 yr.old daughter Nia, watches it every chance she gets! She listens to your CD constantly! Thanks for letting us visit your music school so we could watch you rehearse before your show. Nia knows all your songs by heart and sings and dances like she's a KOOLKID! Nia has eagerly embraced the positive messages and brings it into her daily life. She recenly walked up to two older children who were arguing at the playground and said, "Stop fighting, be a KOOLKID!" We hope to see the KOOLKIDZ on TV again so more people can hear what you have to say. We love you KOOLKIDZ and we want more!"

Karen Nicol, Mother, Stamford, Conn.

This is a children's album that I can actually enjoy with my kids!
"I bought the KOOLKIDZ CD last year and it's been in my car CD player ever since! My 5 yr. old daughter demands we play it on the way to and from school everyday! She knows every word and sings them from the back seat of the car...I never get to play my own music anymore! Your CD has made an impact on our lives and makes long car trips with my kids more tolerable for me. The beats are fun and the lyrics are uplifting, a great combination! We also heard you on the radio and saw you on TV, what a nice surprise! Thanks so much KOOLKIDZ!"

Kathy Dick, Music Teacher, Brooklyn, NY

I love the positive messages!
I am a music teacher at PS 13 in East New York and I just wanted to say that you are doing a wonderful thing
for the kids and the community. Keep up the great work! I am ordering a CD and look forward to using it in my classes. I love the positive messages!
I have been searching for materials like this for a long time. I wonder if other music teachers around NYC know about you. I'll try to spread the news. Are the kids performing any time soon? I would love for my kids
to see them. Do you do assemblies? Thanks for all your doing!
Sincerely, Kathy Dick

Kamala Redd, NYC Teacher for 15 years

A powerhouse CD for the pint-sized set!!
When I taught pre-schoolers, the children couldn't get enough of this CD. It provided an excellent teaching tool, tackling a range of topics from friendship to death. If it rained, "Blue Skies" quickly replaced, "Rain, Rain, Go Away." The music is so well arranged that it rivals the current radio jams without the negative lyrics. The upbeat and danceable stylings give kids a real lift.

My kids love the cd they learned all of the words to the whole cd.
If I hear that cd played one more time I probably would scream. But to be honest I found myself singing right along with them. If only they could play more positive music on the radio just like the KoolKidz cd the world in general would be a happier place. The cd is so positive and it promotes a ray of colors and I love it for my kids. Yes, I would recommend the cd to other family. Jivana and staff should keep up the good work.

Thanks-Spring and Summer's mom

Ariane Diaz, Mother, Brooklyn, NY

This is a great CD to have at home or to share with other families
Both of my children really love the CD and enjoy listening to it everyday! My 8-year old son’s favorite song is “Colors Of the World”. He says it reminds him of all the children of the world, especially his friends. My 6-year old daughter’s favorite song is “Positive” because she is a very positive thinker and wants all her friends to be as positive as she is. This is a great CD to have at home or to share with other families who also want their kids to feel like they have a safe and positive environment. Teaching positive things to kids is so important for tomorrow. Thanks Koolkidz!
