I don’t exactly have a degree in Children’s Music Production or anything, but I imagine that if such a program of study actually existed one of the basic lessons your professors would try to hammer home during your first year would be that there’s nothing kids like more than the combination of aggressive, unmelodic hard rock and terrible rapping by a television star from back in their great-grandparents’ day. It may seem pretty obvious, but you gotta start with the basics before you move on to the real tricky stuff.
