Kaleidoscope Songs is beautiful music blended with meaningful lyrics, Kaleidoscope Songs Number 2 takes us on a journey into the thoughts and feelings we all share in common. Parents and kids alike found the music to be enchanting, and very well produced. Guitars, percussion, French horns, trumpets, drums, pianos, violins and lots of children’s voices make Kaleidoscope Songs Number 2 musically rich and engaging for both children and adults. A must have for all households and each classroom. Actually, I think the CD should be available to every camp facility…kids at camp will enjoy it and camp leaders would appreciate it. - Jodie Lynn, parent-to-parent.com


A myriad of multicultural rhythms and instruments highlight a peaceful safari to the animal kingdom that educates and informs in an engaging way. - Kidsmusic.com


Kaleidoscope Songs Number One” receives the Film Advisory Board Award of Excellence – “Kaleidoscope Songs has received the Film Advisory Board, Inc. Award of Excellence recognition for its contribution to enhance family entertainment.

The Review Committee believe the best way to produce sound ethics in kids is to give them the opportunity to experience music that opens their minds to great values. Kaleidoscope Songs Number One certainly leads in this quest.

The beautiful arrangements and lyrics of songs like ‘When I am Big’, ‘The Family Song’, ‘The Who’s Who Song’ and ‘The Bed Time Song’ ignite compassion, promote awareness, and opens our thoughts that we are all as one in this vast world. The vocals of Alex Mitnick and young choir add perfect for enjoyment.

Kaleidoscope Songs Number One is a great CD that kids will enjoy. The music is very entertaining and delivers great social values. - Film Advisory Board

With 16 national awards in their hip pocket, Alex & The Kaleidoscope Band step front and center on the kids music stage with their 2012 CD, Im So Glad.

The bands fourth release, Im So Glad has already won a 2012 Parents Choice Approved Award and a Tillywig Toy Best Family Fun Award. The song Kangaroo! was an Independent Music Awards Best Song for Children winner.

Im So Glad showcases the work of longtime songwriting partners Alex Mitnick (music) and Alan Bell (lyrics), who glide with ease from rock to folk/pop, from reggae to world music. Mitnick and Bell are known for songs that engage children physically with strong rhythms and catchy melodies and mentally through witty, insightful, empowering lyrics about self-awareness, nature, and the importance of understanding ones role as part of a community.

Kathy OConnell, host of WXPNs Peabody Award winning radio show, Kids Corner, praised Alex & The Kaleidescope Band for musical depth combined with witty lyrics that talk directly to kids. Enthused the Tillywig Toy Awards, The songs are so upbeat, the pulses so rhythmic and danceable, youd be hard put to stay in a bad mood, even if you tried.

"Very enjoyable. Upbeat, catchy tunes, excellent lyrics with great messages. Each tune offers something different in terms of rhythm and pace - all very appealing to a youth audience as well as to adults. It doesn't dumb down to the audience. The lyrics alone are lovely poetry." - Coalition For Quality Children's Media.

"Kaleidoscope Songs is beautiful music blended with meaningful lyrics. Parents and kids alike found the music to be enchanting, and very well produced. Guitars, percussion, French horns, trumpets, drums, pianos, violins and lots of children's voices make Kaleidoscope Songs musically rich and engaging for both children and adults. A must have for all households and each classroom." CEO/founder of the Adding Wisdom Award and family author Jodie Lynn.
