ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A wonderful collection of fun songs for kids (and adults) about artists and art. Created solely by elementary art teacher/musican Greg Percy, this CD uses humorous lyrics and multiple musical styles from "pop to polka to punk" to spark listener interest and to delve into the ever-engaging world of art. You'll hear the Picasso Polka ("One eye looks straight ahead, the other to the right...") and Van Gogh (No Stereo) ("Van Gogh, he couldn't hear in stereo..."). The driving beat of Michelangelo Mad, along with The Red and Yellow Blues, Roy G. Biv, and The Secondary Samba will make you want to get up and dance. These songs, along with the country twang of I Draw the Line, provide an entertaining learning resource for you and your kids. Greg's music again won an award in the MSG's nationwide songwriting contest for the second year in a row. His music was also recently featured on WFUV New York as a part of their tribute to Van Gogh's 150th birthday.

ARTNEWS magazine editor Carly Berwick recently ran a story about Greg's music and explained it was a "veritable goldmine"....

SCHOLASTIC INSTRUCTOR (Jan 2005) ran an article about Greg using music in his classroom to enhance his art curriculum.

DJ Uncle Chris of WTUL has featured Greg's music numerous times on his morning show.

Host Pete Fornatale of WFUV's "Mixed Bag" radio show said "You should check it out for yourself....especially if you're involved in teaching art..."

Greg is an accomplished musician who began writing songs for his classroom as a way to teach his kindergarteners about the primary colors. If you ask a Schenk Elementary student what the primary colors are, it is likely the response will be sung instead of spoken. It's a hoot!

Songs in the key of Art vol. 1 & 4
I recieved these two CDs last week, and just started using them with my art students. I teach both music and art (intermediate level gr. 3-5). My students have never had art before...this is my first year at this scholl, and I am certified in both areas.

I am SO PLEASED with Mr. Percy's efforts. It is a great way to introduce my students to art fundimentals, and a perfect connection with my first semester with them teaching general music. I am currently using the "Red and Yellow Blues" and "Cleanup Anthem". The Blues taught has already reinforced the three colors, and we have moved on to our projects in only one week! The "Cleanup Anthem" will be our signal each day to begin cleanup. When it finishes, they need to be done and start their Art Journal entries as closure. It is so nice to discover another person so connected to both artistic areas. I am going to order vol. 2 & 3 as well. Thank you, Greg!

Wow! My kids love it! I love it! I teach art K-5 to 900+ kids and we only have 45 min. classes. The songs help to introduce and reinforce our art concepts in a fun way during class and while lining to leave class. Fabulous for those squirmy Kindergarteners...
Thanks so much!

Awesome CD! A must have for teachers and parents!
After listening to it only a few times, my 3 year old daughter knew her primary colors and how to make secondary colors. What a great and fun teaching tool!

Kathy Simons

Lively and up beat with a sense of humor
Music in the Key of Art is fun, simple, and humorous. Students look forward to hearing it during clean-up. Students must work to finish clean up before the music stops.

Chuck Mercien

A Masterpiece!!!
What a wonderful idea! Music that's great fot kids, yet clever enough so adults can "get it" too!

Linda Evans

The best art music out there! The kids love the songs K-6
I have all four of the CD's. The kids ask me to play them every class! I am planning to use them in an art concert with art work and songs before my retirement in June. Very catchy tunes and easy for the kids to learn and understand.

Songs In The Key of Art Vol.1
These songs really stick in your head. My students at Perry Elementary are singing these songs in the shower, on the bus, and especially in art class. We love it! What a great addition to my class.

Melissa Stokes

I loved how all forms of music genre were represented!
This CD represented all genres of music. So not only were you able to use it to enhance an art lesson, you could also integrated different styles of music.

Diana

Finally!!
This is a wonderful CD to have around the art classroom. I teach elementary art and I have been looking for a fun way to teach my students about color. Plus the song's about the artists will be a hit with my art history students.

Christy

WOOHOO
