Cool 4 Kids is a brand new solo project from experienced Adelaide musician Tony Genovese. Tony has been entertaining audiences of all ages for nearly 20 years. He is a school teacher who majored in music at teacher’s college, and has been a specialist music teacher and classroom teacher in several schools.

As a teacher, Tony has brought ensembles of student musicians to many Nursing Homes, Kindergartens, Child Care Centres and shopping arcades. He has organized many school music concerts and festivals, including the Riverland Combined Catholic School’s Music Festivals at the Chaffey Theatre in Renmark. He has been a member of numerous cover bands and original bands, including Giant Leap, and has performed at numerous community events and hotels. One of his original songs ‘The Flame’ reached the final of Scala's Foom song competition.

Now he has turned his attention to children’s music. Inspired by his own children, Tony has commenced writing a large amount of original children’s songs which he is currently in the process of recording on to CD. His original music touches on everyday experiences that children can easily identify with, as is evident in song titles such as Colours, Playground, On My Bike, What Day is it today, Dogs, Raining.

The rhythm and melodies of his music are catchy, fun and easy to sing along to. Cool 4 Kids performances provide numerous opportunities for children (and parents) to be involved in: Singing along; Performing actions; Moving & dancing; Dressing up; Playing instruments; Playing games & using finger puppets; Listening & repeating activities; Telling jokes & laughter.

His live and interactive performances also incorporate the best music from the Wiggles, Hi 5, The Hooley Dooleys, The Fairies, Peter Coombe, Bob the Builder and many all time favourite tunes such as Twinkle Twinkle, If You’re Happy & You Know It, Old McDonald and ABC.

Most importantly Tony knows how to interact with his audience in a professional, calm, polite, friendly and gentle manner. Each show is carefully planned and aimed at meeting the individual needs of the children in his audience. His show can be tailored to suit any theme or occasion i.e. Friends, Christmas.

Tony uses the guitar, keyboard, recorder & a huge variety of percussion instruments in his show. Many costumes & props are used to maintain children’s high level of interest, interaction & entertainment. COOL 4 KIDS performances are mainly aimed at children aged 0-8 years old.
