Kinderling Kids Radio in Australia (Stanmore, New South Wales) reviewed Mister John Francisco and Mr. Nick Davio’s album, The Ballad of the Itsy Bitsy Spider, and Other Surprises. “Quirky, catchy and comedic, this album is full of songs and stories to entertain the family from sun up to sun down, which is why it’s our High Five Album of the week this week.”
Chicago Parent magazine calls Mr. Nick’s debut album, Clap With All Your Friends Around, “15 original songs that are beautiful for adult ears and yet will make little ones wiggle happily.” Taylor Wood goes on to say, “The album features different tempos and a variety of musical styles as a nod to the fact that children also appreciate variety as well as catchy tunes.”
Nick has helped instill a love of music in our toddler. Through music and play he’s also helped him build social-emotional skills, communication skills, and patience. Cannot recommend him enough. He has been such a gift in our lives.
Mr. Nick’s classes are truly fun for the entire family. My husband and I are both involved with music professionally and can attest to Mr. Nick’s musical talents. My son enjoys the classes and still gets excited when he thinks about Mr. Nick’s performance at his 2nd birthday party! Whether its an online pandemic class, live music class or a special birthday performance, Mr. Nick is 110% !!!!!
Mr Nick has been wonderful for our 2-year old Henry - his enthusiasm, positive energy and constant creativity really bring a smile to Henry’s face and get him moving and singing along - such a wonderful addition to our day, and something we look forward to all the time. Thanks Mr. Nick!
Mr. Nick has been a lifesaver for us during this time. Our son and daughter absolutely love his songs and are transfixed whenever we put him on – Mom and Dad enjoy the music too! Thanks Mr. Nick!
