Music

Press


"Samson's CD has a musical depth unlike the vast majority of childrens music
today, making it something that parents can also enjoy"
- Susan Fox,
Founder of Park Slope Parents

"Jon's Kids music is what every musician should aspire to - original, catchy, clever and beautifully delivered."
- Jennifer Richardson, DUMBO Parents Organization

“My daughter Bibi LOVES your CD!! We
play it at least 4 times a day. It is her favorite way to spend an hour
(even trumps the TV sometimes which is a first!) - she jumps around to
all the songs and knows most of the words now - we have a lot of fun
with it together and I actually like it too!”- Claire Berliner,
Berliner Design

"If the image we hold of children is rich, creative, and
emotionally connected, then all instruction we do with them is a
collaboration as we co-discover and co-create. Jon brings this process
to his teaching and his songs in a powerful way that makes children and
adults alike want to get up and dance with music in their hands, feet,
heads and hearts." - Brad Choyt, Head of Blue Man Group's Blue School

“The album is a masterpiece"- Kristin Becker, Brooklyn Children's Museum Block Party Fundraiser Committee and President of Brooklyn Women’s Exchange

"If music is the language of the soul, then Jon Samson is fluent
in how to truly connect with children--and all of us--at an unseen
level. He goes beyond the joyful art of music-making to something deeper. He has found a way to create relationship through melody, lyrics, movement and story, weaving beauty and magic and love throughout, so that the process (and result) is healing, connecting and inspiring. This is his gift."
