Dottie Rager – Creative Director for DLG music

“This is one of the most wonderful and creative projects I've heard in a very long time. It is such a great and fun way for children to learn about music. Robin is so very talented and it is very apparent in all the different songs and instruments she plays on this release. I think this will be very successful in helping children to learn about different instruments and have a great time singing along at the same time. Great and amazing work.”
Jude Toy – The Darlins Nashville, TN

“I think this will instill in kids the desire to learn music!!! Your examples are Great and I'm sure will be inspiring to kids of all ages!!! Great Job!!!”
John(J.R.) Morgan- Nashville Musician/Songwriter

“Miss Robin's Musical Farm is a treat for all ages. From the beginning banjo tune that showcases the melodic, happy-go-lucky riffs that banjo-ing entails to the last tune named after the album, Robin Ruddy beautifully explains these essential instruments that are sometimes overlooked in music production. I believe this CD will encourage children who have not yet heard of these instruments to take lessons with an instrument that is new and exciting to them. I, myself feel the need to pick up a mandolin after hearing track 4! Please do yourself and your children a favor and pick this album up for them. “
Kalee Reeves, Marketing Director at
Snodgrass King Pediatric Dental

“I think this is AWESOME!! I love all the songs.”
Denise Talton; NC Quality Inspector

“I love Miss Robin's Musical Farm! It's a creative masterpiece! This CD is full of fun and entertaining songs allowing children to learn the sounds of different musical instruments. It's like each instrument takes on its own character and comes alive in each song.
Thank you, Miss Robin, for creating such a fun, lively tool for kids to learn from.”
