Gayle Schmitt
"Everything is a Song"

A 1999 Parents'Choice Silver Award Winner

For Ages 4 to 6
Music/movement educator Gayle Schmitt performs inviting playalong,
simple songs about a helicoptor, a fire engine, falling leaves, giving each
its own individual style with carefully chosen instruments, from a musical
saw and steel drums, to brass, wind and string instruments, and even just
hands clapping. The neat finale is a musical "Soup" of all the instruments.
(Lynne Heffley, Parents’ Choice ).

A short note on the illustrator of the Images on Gayle Schmitt's Everything is a Song:
Mike Logsdon has been drawing since he was a child, and he just never stopped. He has "grown up" only in the most narrow sense of the word, maintaining his childlike excitement  about life. A working professional for twenty years, Mike is always interested in helping people out with a project. Recently married, he lives with his wife Alice in New York City.
    Mike can be reached at
