Hi Gary,
I saw your wonderful session at the AMS conference last week in San Francisco. It was so wonderful! I've been sharing the songs with my students and we have been loving them and learning from them. Thanks so much for writing fun, educational songs for kids.

Gary: I could tell that music was your passion (along with "fighten far", playing centerfield, photogrqaphy) and I am glad you are still going. I always appreciated the wake up music from you and Gene (Covelo Mt. Breakdown) courtesy of the madolin and banjo. Take care

I can't wait to play this for the kids this evening! I love it - love the message! I particularly enjoyed the "Please Don't Bring An Elephant Home". Given the amount of animals at our house, that message hits home for me.

Fun CD. My favorite is "It's a Zoo Around Here (but it's a jungle out there.) I'm going to loan it to my mom for her 3rd grade class to listen to. They often get into songs with environmental messages and fun lyrics. Also, they'll like the array of musical styles. Some of the stuff they listen to tends to be a little unimaginative when it comes to instrumentation. I'm sure they'll like your CD. There’s clearly a lot of spirit in it. You must be great live.

We are enjoying the Cds. I have trouble keeping them in my office--very popular. Now that I have convinced IT to permit access to your website, I see there is a humantarian link.
Bravo--on all counts!

Gary my daughter asked me to continually play "Don't Bring The Animals Home." Prior to listening to the song she wanted a live Cheetah. After listening to the song she did not make the request again. Whew! I was happy about that. Anyway, I really enjoyed the CD! I recently produced the Children's Music Festival at the Sierra College Campus, and I am currently working on the Children's Music Festival at the CMP Shingle Springs Campus which will take place on February 29, 2008. I know you are booked for February 28th because of your CD party, but I am hoping that you will be able to participate next time.
