Written by music industry veteran David Weiser for his five-year-old son, The Boy Who Wanted to Rock takes readers on a musical journey that encourages children to learn the ropes...and swing from the ceiling! Guided by a cast of helpful and unlikely creatures, a young boy discovers that his inner monster is the key to learning and enjoying music. Beautifully illustrated by longtime friend and fellow musician Derek Lavoie, the story is a tribute to the inner child that sustains every rock 'n roller.
Intended for children ages 3 - 8 years, the book introduces fundamental concepts like rhythm and pitch, and provides a basic overview of how keyboard and fretted instruments work. An easy-to-digest tale told in rhyme, it begins with a frustrated child in a bedroom full of instruments, and ends with proper rock n' roll mayhem in a cave full of monsters!
David Weiser has worked as a keyboard programmer on numerous Broadway, West End, touring and televised musicals, including NBC's 2018 Jesus Christ Superstar, Phantom of the Opera, Cats, and Les Misérables. His credits also include work with artists like David Bowie, The Who, and Brian Wilson. David lives in Boston with his wife and son.
