Timbalooloo, Oran Etkin’s popular new method of teaching, is an approach that fundamentally reimagines the way music is taught to and conceived by children. His award-winning CD, Wake Up, Clarinet! , and his live performances for families literally bring instruments to life as characters in a story. Etkin’s groundbreaking work in music education is also informed by his own creative endeavors in world music. "He is a musician with his ears wide open, absorbing influences from West Africa, the Far East and Europe,” says The Irish Times . “He creates world music in the true sense, not a lazy hybrid but a personal sound born out of deep respect for diverse musical traditions." The WBGO Kids Jazz Concert Series brings world-renowned jazz musicians to concert halls and venues throughout New Jersey’s Essex County. These hour-long concerts give young listeners the chance to discover the enjoyment of jazz, improvisation and musical collaboration.
