Music that Rocks: For Kids and their Families!
AKA: Michael A. Reich
Is a Singer/Songwriter/Lead Guitarist, who specializes in crafting catchy arrangements of Originals, Classics, and Traditional Children's tunes and making them rock...
for the whole family
In 1993, Michael began teaching Elementary School in Monroe County as well as Songwriting and Recording Workshops for students, in the towns of Pittsford, Penfield, East Irondequoit, and Brighton, NY. At the same time, he performed Classic, Eclectic Rock Concerts at Town Celebrations, Festivals, and Corporate/Special Events (including a Pool Party for the RPO!), before taking on the affable persona of Professor Jangle in 2006 and focusing on writing, arranging, recording, and producing music for children... and their families!
In August 2007, Professor Jangle released his iTunes debut: Yellow Rubber Duckie, which has earned world wide attention, with sales reaching from the USA and Canada, all the way to Germany and the UK, over to Australia and in Japan!!!
In the early years, Michael was also featured on the Rochester, NY Radio Programs: WMAX's "Live at DeJelon Concert Series," in the Nineties and WCMF's "Homegrown," in the late Eighties. From 1986-1990, he performed in the Syracuse area while attending SU and then regularly in Hoboken, New Jersey, upon his graduation. Michael's very first concert appearances at private/corporate affairs, parties, schools, clubs, and shopping malls began in 1983, when he was just 15 years old!
