Hi everyone! Thanks for taking the time to check out my Kickstarter campaign. I've been working so hard to finish all the details on this new book and designing the customized xylophone which will replicate the exact colors in the Color Me Mozart book. I am really excited that it's finally ready to go, and now I need your help to bring the book and the custom xylophone to life!
Color Me Mozart is a music learning system for kids that I've been developing over the past five years. My goal was to create a way for kids to learn music without it being boring or tedious, using recognizable concepts. I chose shapes and colors as these are the first things that children learn in school and at home.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Adrian Edward is a music therapist, teacher and classically trained pianist (you didn‘t even know he played piano, did ya?). He lives in Brooklyn, NY, where he works as a music therapist at the Guild for Exceptional Children and is a guitar teacher at the prestigious Collegiate School in New York City. Adrian created Color Me Mozart while teaching thousands of children the joy of music.

WHERE THIS PROJECT CAME FROM
In my years working as a music therapist and a piano and guitar teacher, I realized that there was a void of fun and easy material to teach kids music. It was either too boring or way too simplistic. On the other hand, there were games like Guitar Hero, that while fun, didn't really teach you actual music. (It was a blast to feel like a rock star though!)
I wanted to create a simple, music learning system for both a general education and special needs setting, including children with autism and other disabilities. I knew there had to be a way for kids to easily learn music the way they naturally learn the language they speak at home.
It was then that I tried this idea with my students and was blown away by the incredible results.
$5,000 Total Funding
We did it! We reached our goal! That means that this book and the customized Color Me Mozart xylophone WILL be made! Thanks to everyone who helped us get to this $5,000 goal!
$10,000 Total Funding
If we reach $10,000 total funding, everyone who is receiving a Color Me Mozart book, will also receive a Color Me Mozart sticker sheet with all the characters on each sheet. Who doesn’t love stickers?!!
Risks and challenges
Since most of the design is completed for the xylophone and book, there are very little risks, other than me getting abducted by aliens. In which case, I have left very competent people in charge who will do their best to replicate my signature!
I have put a lot of time, and hard work into this project and after working for so long to get the first book out, I know what it takes to see projects to completion. I am determined to see this through. Thanks again for your support!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
