I composed my first songbook at age three (it was called The Buffalo Bill Songbook —don’t ask me why—and my sister, Naomi Rosenblatt, illustrated it. Little has changed: my book of musical games for children, Games That Sing, was published by Heritage Music Press/Lorenz in 2011 and my sister illustrated that one too.
In 2014 my sister and I founded Heliotot, the children’s imprint of Heliotrope Books. Our first series of books, How Do You Do Music ™, won a Family Choice Award in 2015. How Do You Do Music ™ acquaints young readers with elements of music theory, conveyed through stories.
Our second series of books is designed for very young children with short attention spans and is called Restless Rooms.
Over the years I have also written articles about music education, and other subjects for print and online publications. In 2005 I was nominated for Parenting Publications of America (PPA) Award for Excellence for my article in Big Apple Parent. (Scan for a PDF)
