About The BeatBuds®
The BeatBuds® are Jonathan Jonah and Matthew Shapiro (aka Jonny Jingles and Matty Maracas). Longtime musical partners and best friends, The BeatBuds® are dedicated to exercising your child’s mind through music. With music performance and arts degrees from California State University at Northridge and The Los Angeles Music Academy, combined with a versatile background in music education, the duo has created a diverse and interactive program that offers your child exposure to the basic components of music. Through the use of major and minor keys and rhythmic and melodic exploration, The BeatBuds® write and perform catchy tunes that are rich in both spirit and message.
Drawing from their experience self-producing many musical projects as well as working side by side with world renown music producers, in addition to many years of performing both nationally and internationally, their original music is endearing and educational, lyrically touching upon a multitude of cultural and societal topics including the maintenance of self image, tolerance, health and hygiene, safety, environmental consciousness, and general education. It is through this music that The BeatBuds® are able to simultaneously exercise your child’s creative and logical mind as well as provide a fun and engaging musical experience.
