Music for Aardvarks is the brainchild of the classically trained ex-punk rocker David Weinstone. His songs, originally written for the Music for Aardvarks classes he founded, reflect and celebrate the lives of children growing up in urban environments, while addressing themes universal to children everywhere. Time Out New York Kids said, “it’s no exaggeration to say that Weinstone has changed the musical geography of New York.” The Music for Aardvarks Band’s latest album, All I Want!, was released in March 2011. David Weinstone’s first book for children, Music Class Today!, was released in September 2015 and his second book, All My Friends Are Fast Asleep, will be released in fall 2017.
