Free Children’s Concerts at Seven SCCLD Libraries

Featuring: Andy Z, Nationally Acclaimed Singer/Songwriter

WHO:  The Santa Clara County Library District (SCCLD) and the Bay Area’s own singer/songwriter Andy Z.

WHY:  Learning to read begins before children start school. Studies show that reading success in Kindergarten begins with positive language and literacy experiences from the time they are babies. By following these five simple practices: TALK, SING, READ, WRITE, and PLAY with children - parents and caregivers can easily support early literacy skill building in fun ways while helping their child get ready for school. Access to all of these practices and more can be found at local libraries.  The free concert by Andy Z, featuring fun interactive songs, is one example of the many free library sponsored events that can help build early literacy skills in young children.

WHAT: Free family concerts featuring nationally acclaimed singer/songwriter Andy Z will be held in SCCLD libraries during the month of September.   Known for his engaging personality and up-beat music, Andy Z’s concerts feature songs that are both educational and incredibly silly.   From lullabies and sing-a-longs to finger plays and dance-a-longs, his concerts feature music the entire family will enjoy. Perfect for preschool and early grade school children, Andy Zhas performed at libraries and schools throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.

ABOUT Andy Z:  Born and raised in Redwood City (Born: Andreas Zamenes), Andy Z began his music career playing in a teen rock band.  He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music from San Francisco State University and played in various San Francisco Bay Area bands while in college. His career as a prominent children’s musician began serendipitously one day when asked to substitute for a local preschool’s music teacher.  It was during this time that he became enamored with the world of children’s music; adding songs aimed at preschool age audiences into his music sets.  Since then, he has produced six full length albums, receiving multiple awards for his songs, albums and DVDs from Disney iParenting Media Awards, Parent’s Choice Foundation, Creative Child Magazine and Santa’s Choice. His songs have been featured on Pandora’s Video Series and Pottery Barn Kids’ Video Sing-a-long series.  His latest album: “Classic Songs & Traditional Tunes” recently received six national awards including: NAPPA Silver, Parent’s Choice Silver and Kids First Coalition for Quality Children’s Media Approved.
