From the children’s book Marvin Makes Music by the late composer Marvin Hamlisch, this song celebrates the true story of how Marvin loved to play the piano and compose his own songs. All the sounds in a child’s world come together to create the music “in my mind – a song worth singing.
“We tried to put the story of how my experience of auditioning for The Juilliard School went. It’s is told in this wonderful book for children “Marvin Makes Music.” At the same time we decided to give the kids a song to learn. A song that really says that there is so much music in the world, wherever you go. Some people think it’s noise when they hear a horn honking, but all this music out there some kids actually hear it as music and not as noise. And that’s what we wanted to do. We want to create this new world form them. And so I hope you are going to enjoy the music, you are going to love the lyrics by Rupert Holmes — A Tony winner by the way — And I look forward to meeting you soon…See ya!!!” — (Marvin Hamlisch, 1944–2012)
