Musical Edu-tainment (Educational Entertainment) for preschoolers and their Parents! "Part Wiggles, part Paul Simon... "

GARY KAZOO: A KAZOO FOR YOU is a children's music project meant to introduce preschoolers to the concepts of rhyming, dancing, rhythm, melody and all sorts of excitement associated with music and movement.  A whimsical, colorful character, Gary Kazoo sings, dances and kazoos his way through songs about a wide range of kid-friendly topics.
Edu-tainment (Educational Entertainment) for the preschool set....and their parents!_______

WHAT I WANT TO DO

  • Foster creativity in preschoolers through music
  • Introduce young children to music fundamentals: rhythm, melody, rhyme, harmony
  • Produce fun, educational music about subject matter appropriate for children under 6 years old

WHAT THE MONEY IS FOR

A 5-song demo CD is already complete. Funding will be used to produce and record a professional, full-length, 12-15 song CD

HOW I PLAN TO DO IT

With a BFA in Film and Television Production, 10 years experience running an independent graphic design studio and over 20 years as a professional musician, I will personally undertake many of the creative, technical, and administrative tasks required to complete this project, such as:

  • Audio pre-production
  • Layout, design of CD artwork
  • Creation of print materials
  • Set design
  • Video production

By performing these tasks myself, all funds raised can be allocated to a few key areas: professional audio production, and CD mastering.
Any funds raised over the goal will go into CD duplication, the production of videos in support of CD, including equipment, video pre- and post-production, set design, duplication, and web design.

I thank you for showing interest in the Gary Kazoo project and your potential support!  

Kazooing Always-
Gary Kazoo

PS - If you can't help out with the funding monetarily, please feel free to forward this link to anyone you may know who may be interested; that is also worth the world to me.....and if you let me know you got me a backer, i'll send you a kazoo.....and maybe a song or two    : )
