Alphabet Rockers is the "modern day De La Soul for the 21st century (all-natural) juice box crowd" (Cooper & Kid). This is an intergenerational dance party where the performers' infectious energy and hip hop grooves get kids jumping and head nodders rocking out - all set to educational lyrics about complex cultural topics and learning goals. Your kids belong. You will think this is "your music." And you will have confidence this is adding value to your community and life.
Alphabet Rockers music, videos, performances and workshops represent the future of education, of child development, and of children's media. Similar to Sesame Street, Alphabet Rockers works with educational advisors on every lyric, message, gesture and stage performance efforts to ensure the learning content is aligned to curricular and child development outcomes. Magnifying this goal, the group and its advisors use culturally responsive pedagogy to provide forward thinking media for our diverse American children. Alphabet Rockers promote change and empower young children through Hip Hop, positive messages, education and movement. Songwriters and featured performers Kaitlin McGaw and Tommy Shepherd, Jr. see each child and audience member as an individual rich with culture, and capable of expression, learning, fun, collaboration and changing the world.
