ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sam Massarsky's "MUSIC TIME" is an iParenting Media Award Winner For Outstanding Children's Products for 2007.

KID-TESTED, PARENT-APPROVED, AND TEACHER RECOMMENDED !!!


It’s been an interesting musical journey from being a song leader and camp counselor in the “60’s” playing music for young children at summer camps, to the folk and rock music scene in the coffee houses and clubs along the Jersey Shore while attending Monmouth College in West Long Branch, to the West Coast clubs and the street music scene at Fisherman’s Wharf and Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco and graduating from San Francisco State University. It seems now as if it’s come full circle to do what Sam Massarsky has always enjoyed the most. Affectionately known as "Sam the Music Man" by hundreds of children and their parents, he's the pre-school “Music Specialist” teaching classes at several Marin County pre-schools as well as a performer presenting children's music programs in the S.F. Bay area.

When he observed the need and interest for more complex, challenging, and more “sophisticated” songs in young children beyond “Twinkle Twinkle” and the usual “ABC” song, Sam knew it was time to create a program that challenged children in a manner that was fun and at the same time helped kids become more aware of their own musical capabilities. "One of the most important things we can do as teachers (and parents) is to help recognize and create interesting and challenging opportunities for our kids," Sam says, "My music sessions are not set up as just a classroom activity, but as an experience for the kids (and me) to grow and develop in. Within each music session that combines entertainment with an underlying lesson plan that actually includes music theory, harmony, rhythm and rhyme...is an opportunity for each child's creativity to emerge."

In his classes, kids learn about manners, and playing, and friendships, and respect, and dinosaurs, and the ABC's, and other "kid essentials" while at the same time gaining experience with the "how to's" of musical play and song through music that they can relate to. They even get to make up their own songs about things they want to sing about. They learn to use their bodies as musical instruments to learn percussion and rhythm, and definitely put to rest the myth that most 3 and 4-year-olds cannot snap their fingers in rhythm. For after they are in Sam’s class, indeed they can !

From the new remixed version of “THE BABY SONG” originally recorded in 1996 with infant son Alex singing along, to the “HELLO HELLO” greeting, the welcoming invitation to join in singing and clapping in “MUSIC TIME”, the rousing rocking and rolling to the sing along “ROCK & ROLL ABC’S”, the inevitable never ending “QUESTIONS”, to “QUIET TIME” where we learn to appreciate all the sounds around us, and finally the "GOODBYE SONG" to end the journey until next time, this MUSIC TIME CD will take you and your kids on a musical excursion that’s fun and thought provoking. It’s got a flavor of 60’s Rock, Country, and folk styles with original words and music that Mom and Dad can really appreciate too. Kids love to listen to the song "Questions" because it makes them laugh, but Mom's and Dad's love it for another very special reason as well.

With the added skills and talent of musician/singer, sound engineer, and good friend Jon Zobler at BIGsurSOUND Studios who put his own special touch on this project, Sam has created a great music CD that you and your kids will want to listen to, and sing along with again and again. We know you will enjoy it !

Warm, engaging, fun music for kids of all ages!
I received a copy of this CD just a couple of weeks ago and it has been my pleasure to share it with the children in my summer camp programs. Together we have all been absolutely delighted by this warm, engaging, fun music for kids of all ages. Every single camper, with ages ranging from seven to twelve, has requested this CD to be played again and again! An excellent new addition to our repertoire while on the road with our camp explorations. Too bad we can't take the real Sam Massarsky along with us!

Maybe for little kids but as an 11 year old I love this too!
This CD may be for little kids but as an 11 year old I love this too! My favorite of the songs is Questions. It really got me thinking. I also really like the Baby Song with the baby in the background. The style is comfortable and relaxing and a lot of fun too. I want to thank my camp director for sharing it with us at camp. We're all having a lot of fun singing along in the camp van. I'm going to ask my parents to get me my own copy.

Absolutely delightful and entertaining for any age factor.
The cd was totally wonderful and entertaining regardless of the listeners age. I am quite elderly and I found myself singing along with the music and tapping my arthritic toes.

great voice, catchy tunes, clever words, fun learning
Sam has a great voice, catchy tunes, clever words and makes learning fun. Even a veteran educator like me can't resist singing along. I am buying copies for each special youngster on my Christmas and Chanukah lists this year (but I won't share my own treasured copy.)
