A graduate of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Mike believes the best way to introduce children to music an composers is through fun. If children can learn about music in a fun way, and think of composers as real people, the exciting world of music will be open to them for the rest of their lives.

He illustrates it with a mix of classic pictures and humorous cartoons.
