Fairy Tales are empowering, emotional, and important.  But today, simply telling these stories just isn’t enough.  They’ve been told, retold, and reimagined so many times that they are often unrecognizable.  These timeless stories need to be remembered! And what better way to remember them than with music?

Brian Banks set about telling these stories - one by one - as songs, calling them “StorySongs”, and put together a band “OUTTA THE BOOKS” to record them. . . OTB sings these tales so kids can relate, respond and remember.

"OTB brings fairy tales back to their roots - teach kids life lessons through inspiring songs”
-- David Dinerstein, Producer “Summer of Soul”

Diversity and Inclusion

CMN stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement across the world. We are committed to cultivate a welcoming and affirming space, promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in our organization and the world at large. We recognize the positive power of music to shape children’s sense of fairness and justice, to teach the enormous importance of often-marginalized cultures to our music traditions, and to amplify the voices of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People Of Color), LGBTQI+ communities, and people of all abilities. We pledge to lead with humility, to continue our advocacy and support our members in theirs.
