Praise for Baby Cello in the press and from commentators
"The cello is the closest instrument to the human voice, according to conductor Geoffrey Simon, Artistic Director of Cala Records, whose 75-minute CD Baby Cello—Calming Music for Baby and You, will lull overexcited tots into peaceful slumber.
