Cataloona Zoo loves to create and perform great music for kids. Some of our songs are musically educational, some are just for silliness, and all of them are fun. We think our music is particularly appropriate for toddlers, preschoolers and grade school aged children, but at the bottom of this page, you can give it a listen and decide for yourself.

Joy Hess, on piano and vocals, is a children's music educator with eleven years of experience. She has taught individuals, large groups, kids from preschool through senior high. She is an accomplished musician who currently performs as a member of the Pittsburgh Camerata. As a music teacher, she received the Indiana/Armstrong County Educator of the Year Award, and was recently honored to be the guest conductor for the PMEA 2005 District VI Song Fest.

Roland Hess, on guitar and vocals, is a bit of a computer geek. It hasn't stopped him from enjoying and playing music since he was a kid, as well as trying his hand at songwriting.

Below you can find links to some of our music. We're still working on our music, trying to get our recordings to sound just like they should. Keep checking back for more! Click on the "-more-" link beside each song for the lyrics, and any appropriate educational notes. If you and your kids like it, share it with your friends.
