TORONTO – April 6, 2020 – SiriusXM’s Kids Place Live announced the launch of “Tunetopia”, a daily series of exclusive performances featuring kids’ musicians, award-winning artists from Kids Place Live, and music educators from around the country. The special programming, in video and audio form, is available exclusively on the SiriusXM app beginning today.
“Tunetopia” on Kids Place Live will provide an assortment of fun and educational content for children ages 10 and under, including interviews, games, and in-studio performances from the best in family-friendly music, including those from Laurie Berkner, Jack Forman, Lucy Kalantari, Lisa Loeb, Brady Rymer, Danny Weinkauf of They Might Be Giants and more.
In addition, “Tunetopia” will incorporate a special learning segment with music educators, including Matt Marshak (“Matt The Music Man”) and Darlene Graham of “Rockin Tots.” The teaching features include introducing kids to new instruments, and instruction on how to make drum beats, how to beatbox, and how to keep rhythm, which helps children explore how sounds are made, and shows them how to make music at home using a variety of household objects.
