-LA PARENT Magazine (December, 2005)


-"Irreverence and cool is stamped all over "I Am Your New Music Teacher."

-Kathy O'Connell, host of the Peabody award winning "Kids Corner" radio program. Metrokids.com


-"The entire album has a gentle, albeit sly, sense of humor."

-Stefan at Zooglobble.blogspot.com


-"It's great to listen to songs that have been tested with and approved by kids (approximately 200 a week), and it's pretty obvious why he's so popular."

-Coolmompicks.com

-"Infused with wit, you might find yourself listening to this CD long after the kids have gone to bed..."

Some weeks it's like the Beatles landing at JFK; a three year old spots Parker coming up the walk, guitar in hand, and starts to squeal, gasp, and squirm. The noise level rises as all of the kids rush to take their seats for music-time and soon a spontaneous chant starts to boom, "Par-KER, Par-KER, Par-KER!!! Twenty to thirty little hearts and souls cheering for music-time to begin.....it is something to behold!

Parker Bent is the preschool music teacher for the City of Beverly Hills, CA. He brings his music to over 200 children weekly; laughing, singing, and sliding a little teaching in under the radar. He also brings his music to other preschools, children's festivals, private classes, and parties.

Parker's music has been played on NPR's "We Like Kids!" as well as the Peabody Award winning "Kid's Corner" radio program. He and his work were featured in the December 2005 issue of LA PARENT Magazine, reviewed on Zooglobble.blogspot.com, coolmompicks.com, and lovelydavis.blogspot.com.

"I Am Your New Music Teacher" is a collection of songs written through Parker's work in pre-school music class. The songs are fun, funny, and smart. Their musical and lyrical sophistication is rare in music geared for kids. (Parents admit to sliding it back into the CD player AFTER they've dropped their kids off at school! There are even 5th and 6th graders that are die-hard fans!)

"26 Letters" introduces toddlers to spelling with a foot-stomping back-beat and a heart-warming outro. "I Am Your New Music Teacher" pokes fun at the sometimes inexplicably controlling world of adults. "Count On" just plain rocks!

Parker considers "I Am Your New Music Teacher" his proudest musical achievement to date and is thrilled to share it with the world. Please drop him a line letting him know what you think! mail@parkerbent.com. There you may also inquire about booking for birthday parties, classes, or other performance events.

-----

Parker has worked full-time as a pre-school teacher in Massachusetts (his home state) as well as in Beverly Hills, California. He currently works with typical children as well as many with autism, speech and language delay, and other developmental problems. His 15 years working with children have helped him hone his natural sense of children's needs, interests, and funny-bones. His warmth and sense of fun translate instantly in his stage-presence. Children and adults alike recognize him as safe, trustworthy, and hilarious. One head teacher has called him, "...the jewel of our program."

Kerrin Walker M.Ed

This CD is a fabulous educational tool.
Music excites children and gets them primed for learning, this CD exceeds all expectations I had as an education specialist. Parker's humor is contagious and his music truly generates such a positive emotional response in learners that it should be used at home, in the car and definitely in the educational setting. The only thing better than the CD is actually having Parker perform in person.

Great fun for everyone!
Awesome!

Will get you (or your kids) in a great mood, no matter how you feel! Lots of good humour in the lyrics and the singer's voice is unbeatable. Whatever music style you are into, and whatever age your kids (or you) are, you'll love this!

More!
Just received the cd after I saw it described on a mom-centered website and all I can say is, "Make more!" This might be the only children's music I really enjoy: it's fun, educational, and just plain cool. Keep it coming!

this CD is fantasstic. Beautiful, well done, fun listening!
Even as an adult, this CD is a real treat. Rarely do we see children's performers with something more to offer than "Barney", and this one's got that something.
Funny, inventive, creative, Parker Bent will make you and your kids tap your toes and sing along.
Great fun. I highly recommend it.

Parker was a huge asset in my classroom!
Parker taught music in my classroom for speech and language delayed children for 2 years. The children loved his music and were inspired to learn all the words. I would recommend Parker's music for all preschool aged children!

Great CD to wake up to!
Parker was my son's pre-school teacher and we had the pleasure of not only knowing his music, but Parker himself. Now that we live in Texas, we put this CD on for Chase while he begins to wake up in the morning for school. By the time "Count On" is over, Chase is up and ready for the day. We really miss Parker, but we are so glad to have his wonderful, funny songs with us! Buy the CD! You and your kids will LOVE it!
