Synopsis: This book gives children an opportunity to color musical cartoon characters and to learn how to draw musical elements including the grand staff, clefs, musical alphabet, musical notes, bar line and time signature.
About the Author: Mike Singer was born and raised in Miami, Florida. He began playing guitar at the age of nine and eventually studied jazz guitar and music education. As a single parent and private guitar instructor, he understood the value of early musical training for young minds. So he improvised a bedtime story that was designed to indoctrinate his son's young mind with the elements of music.
Since the Grand Staff is the ten lines that music is written on, he began to improvise:
In the world of music there lives a
wise old musician known as Grand Staff.
He has ten lines on his body.
And a space in the middle divides them in half.
Mike thought about how children learn the regular alphabet, which goes from A to Z, and how the musical alphabet goes from A to G. He realized they made a perfect rhyme, as did many other similes he began to compose. So night after night he would tell his son the poetic storylines. And night after night his son would make repeated requests to hear them "Daddy, tell me about Grand Staff!" he would say. "Daddy, tell me about Middle C!" That's when he realized he must have the musical components illustrated into cartoon characters, which he knew would result in a novel and unique way of introducing the elements of music to children.
In all, Mike has written several poetic scripts for five children's picture books, composed numerous songs, created a musical board game and put together a talented team of business entrepreneurs and artists to produce what is now the most innovative, colorful and fun way of teaching music to children: Grand Staff and His Musical Friends!
