Music for Little People

Music for Little People is an award-winning producer of music as well as the premier catalog resource for families searching for the best in music and musically related products for children.

Music for Little People began as a mail order catalog in 1985, quickly emerging as the leading resource for quality, alternative musical product with an educational, muticultural orientation. The creation of the record label followed close behind, furthering the vision of founder and record producer Leib Ostrow to develop children’s recordings that enhanced and expanded children’s musical experiences (and were also “easy on the ears” of parents). From original music to classic covers or perennial favorites, Music For Little People has developed into one of the country’s largest and most respected sources of educational and multicultural recordings for children and families, working with highly regarded artsits including Taj Mahal, Maria Muldaur, Los Lobos, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Buckwheat Zydeco, Andrew Gold, David Lindley, Mimi Bessette, Ric Louchard, Catfish Hodge, Joanne Shenandoah, Michelle Shocked, Shelley Duvall, The Persuasions and Grammy award-winners Sweet Honey In The Rock.

Music for Little People has also produced themed collections featuring such diverse artists as Raffi, Paul Simon, Pete Seeger, Burl Ives, Michelle Shocked, Jerry Garcia, David Grisman, Bobby McFerrin, Joni Mitchell, John McCutcheon, Doc Watson, The Doobie Brothers, Kenny Loggins & Jim Messina, James Taylor, Charlie Daniels, Tom Paxton, Linda Ronstadt, Aaron Neville, Faith Hill, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Julie Andrews, Chuck Berry, Loreena McKennitt and John Lennon.
