I am so so so so so excited about this week’s video!!!

Before we get to that, though, I just wanted to let you know that our Miss Nina Online Play School Demo started yesterday, but it’s not too late to join us! (It’s FREE!) You can catch up on the art projects from yesterday, and join us for a Facebook Live Story Time today (Tuesday) @ 10 am.


OK – and now…..This week’s video. I had the great fortune to have Lucy Kalantari (www.LucyKalantari.com) of Lucy Kalantari & The Jazz Cats – AND her 4 year old song, Darius, join me in making a video for you all!  Lucy is an award winning musician who’s music I LOVE!

On September 16th, 2016, she released her second jazz age rendezvous for families, Big Things, and it was awarded a Parents’ Choice Silver Honor Award. The opening track, “Fantastic” received the Independent Music Award for Children’s Music Song, after also receiving an album nomination for Children’s Album and a Holiday Song nomination for “It’s Halloween”. “Balloon” won The International Songwriting Competition in the children’s category.  I first heard and saw her perform a couple of years ago at KindieComm and immediately fell in love with everything about her – her spirit, her style, her performance. I think you will too!

So, I invited her to come over to YouTube Space NY to recored a video with me. And we got the extra special bonus of having her song, Darius, record with us and play Cello! We recorded Lucy’s super fun arrangement of Old MacDonald Had A Farm: Jazz MacDonald: 

If you’ve been looking for a new twist on this old favorite, look no further!

And be sure and check out Lucy at her website and on her Facebook Page.

We hope you enjoy the video! We’d love to hear what you think of it in the comments below, or over on my Facebook Page.

Thanks of watching! And be sure to share the fun with your friends!
