It’s SPRING CLEANING time and we here are Rockness Music want you to turn your cleaning chores into a musical afternoon of adventure and fun with your children. Did you know that everything makes a sound?  It’s true. Try tapping on the dinner table with your kids.  Walk up and down your gravel driveway.  All of a sudden you have the backdrop for an awesome song.  So when you are heading outside to clean the yard you can make music with soccer balls and baseball mitts just by drumming on the them.  You will make very unique sounds with these not so typical instruments. Whoa! Who needs a drum kit when you have a basketball to groove with?

If your baby or toddler is tired of the latest and greatest toy you can always turn to wooden spoons or plastic cups to make music.  So while straightening up the kitchen pantry you can take the box of mac and cheese and shake it like a shaker.  That’s right, shake that mac and cheese!  Before you recycle it you can start your own jug band by blowing on the top of an empty jug of apple juice. You will be the coolest family on the block!

Check out the song Everything Makes A Sound from the album Everything Makes A Sound written and performed by Rockness Music founder Michael Napolitano and his family.  Hint, those are all items from the studio!   Talk about everything makes a sound.

We want to hear from you – send our your spring cleaning pictures to info@



Children love quality music, that’s why they love Bruce, the Beatles and Rockness Music. They want to hear great music just like you do!

Real Rock and Roll musicians fill these classes with unforgettable, undeniable, musical awesomeness for your little one. With hip, adult-friendly music, Rockness Music offers engaging musical education classes and performances for babies through K’s. Classes educate and entertain by using original tunes, hip-shakin’ dance moves, and exciting instruments and props. We turn up the music without turning up the volume and every class and show is an educational, roof-raising celebration.

A child as young as 6 months can rock their body to rhythms and keep time. Soft lullabies are wonderful for children, but it’s hard to latch on to the beat. Rockness Music’s music drives a heavy unmistakable downbeat with which a child of any age can react. The rhythm they gain aids the building blocks of other skills like logic, reasoning and math.  With our high energy rockin’ tunes and boogie down dance grooves even the shyest of children break out of their shell and rock OUT!

The founder’s experiences with Blue Man Group and as a music specialist at The Blue School in New York City influences the curriculum and music in a progressive style. Within our community we build confidence and spirit, and encourage endless artistic expression.

Rockness Music classes are for children ages 6 months to 5 years. The social benefits of mixed age classes are IMMENSE. In this community the children learn to be respectful, caring and friendly. Add a full on rock attitude with tons of love and you have Rockness Music.
