Sandman Records' newest children's CD, Turn Up the Music!, has earned its 8th children's music award in just over a year. Sandman Records' President, Lanny Sherwin, announced that the CD was recently honored with a Learning Magazine Teacher's Choice Award for the Family.
Turn Up the Music! is geared toward 4-9 year olds and has also picked up awards from some of the most respected parents and teachers organizations:
Creative Child Magazine
Children's Music Web
Natl. Assn. of Parenting Publications
"Turn Up the Music! is just a fun CD with a variety of songs that seem to appeal to children and parents alike, says Sherwin, who wrote, produced and sings on the CD. The lyrics are a combination of silly and serious. Some of the songs address acceptance and tolerance, doing our best, respect for nature and animals…but it's not preachy," he adds. "I try never to write down to kids. They are much more sophisticated about music than people realize. I just try to write for the whole family -- kids, parents, and grandparents." Turn Up the Music! also combines a myriad of musical styles including Doo-Wop, Pop, Motown, Rock, and Caribbean.
Sandman Records, whose motto is "Don't Drive Parents Crazy!", has been creating award-winning children's music since 2001. It's Dream With Me Tonight lullaby series has earned a combined 15 awards. A portion of Sandman Record's proceeds benefits the Spina Bifida Association of America and numerous children's charities. All the CDs are available at Borders Books, Amazon.com, CDBaby.com, and http://www.SandmanRecords.net.
