Ages: 1 - 5 yrs.
Producer: Community Music
DVD Price: $14.99

Family and folk music stalwarts Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer introduce preschoolers and toddlers to the inviting charms of percussive music-making. Featuring varied rhythmic patterns for viewers to try, and providing tunes on mandolin and guitar, Fink and Marxer progress to drums and shakers, washboard, spoons and a dancing wooden "limber jack" puppet, before a tap-dancing finale performed by a talented teen. The simple format-a black background, no bells and whistles-is comfortable and engaging as these two musical pros speak directly to the very young children that are their target audience.
