"i got an itch and i can't scratch it..." words that speak to my heart (and unfortunately, other areas, too...) so, you ask? what's up with the kids music review, billy. tired of the songshooter stuff? ACTUALLY, not. ok, so i have a nephew that's 5 and he's on youtube all the time and he's watching this post of artsmart with miss patti. he's playing "i got an itch" over and over and over again. yes, i was ready to hurt him, but two days later i can't get the song out of my head, and then what happens? i get a submission through songshooter.com from who? yup. miss patti and the feeling groovy band. so, we listen and it turns out they're really great. we have an intern still playing the "pick up my toy blues". totally catchy/bluesy/groovy stuff. my personal favorite is their rendition of kids classic, "down by the bay". if you have little critters, check out miss patti and artsmart. your kids will love it. peace to the shooters! billy thin
“Pleasantville, NY-Miss Patti get kids moving and grooving with her unique blend of upbeat, kid-friendly rock and roll.”
"My son listened to your cd in the car on the way to school. He flipped. Took it into school and they listened to it all morning."
“I purchased your album on iTunes over the weekend. We love it. Nico cries when I turn it off. I have to replay it again and again. I asked Anthony whose music he likes better, you or Laurie Berkner and he said "Miss Patti" right away. Thank you for bringing joy to my family!!!”
“KATONAH, N.Y. — Patti Hupp, is known to her students as Miss Patti. With the help of her producer husband Kevin Hupp, Miss Patti is putting together a series of webisodes with some of her students called “Miss Patti's ArtSmart,” which includes learning about art and music history while also giving kids the chance to make a mimic of a masterpiece. “It’s based on the program I’ve been teaching for six years. I teach preschoolers how to re-create works of art,” Hupp said. “Half art, and half music. It’s art history with music terminology.” "We want to put it on a national level and expose it to everybody,” Hupp said. Loren Anderson, executive director of the Katonah Art Center, is giving her the space needed to film the webisodes. Anderson, though, was more than happy to give up her space for the cause. “She’s one of our teachers, and she’s wonderful. I love the way she combines music and art. She takes music and exposes them to a variety of musicians”
