Maestro Zubin Mehta signing newyorkbrass classikids book Zubin Mehta recently endorsed and collaborated on a really cool interactive classical music children’s book, which is in the final stages of production and QA and will be available in stores across the globe starting in July.

About a year ago we have been approached to help arrange music for an interactive classical music children’s book, by Amit Sopher of Classikids.com, who produces interactive books for children. Amit developed a very interesting electronic platform that plays 10 minutes of high quality mp3 on a surprisingly good speaker.

To kick off the project, I contacted the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra’s personnel manager – Mr. Stewart Taylor. Mr. Taylor is my teacher, mentor, and close friend, and was played principal trombone for many years.  He suggested talking to another friend – Mr. Yaacov Mishori.

Mishori has written other books and today teaches at the Buchmann-Mehta High School and presents a weekly radio program.
