Ed and I have taught music in the New York City school system for many years. Working with the children inspired many original songs, and culminated in an original Children's Music CD. "It Goes This Way" can be found online , www.cdbaby.com/carolnicodemi , and in more than 100 public libraries throughout the United States.
The Children's Music Network has featured our song "Two Kids In the City" in their Tuneful Tuesdays Blog. We love to perform for children, and have done so in many public libraries in NYC. We worked with children from every culture, and stressed diversity and love for all. Adults have much to learn from children sometimes.:)
Our daughter Elyse Orecchio, shares the vocals with me on this CD, Ed plays guitar, piano and flute, and his former high-school student, Federico Zegarra, is on percussion. Our son-in-law, Joseph Orecchio, lucky for us, is our photographer as well.
My friend ,co-teacher, talented artist and children's story writer, Carol Hamill, did the lyrics for "Monet's Garden" and "Vincent Van Gogh".
There are at least a dozen new original children's songs scheduled for our upcoming Children's Cd, after our Folk-Jazz CD is completed. One thing at a time:) We might even get the grandkids in on that one! We'll keep you posted:)
