“Jonathan?s musical style is uplifting and easy listening with story lines that celebrate individualism. I found myself singing along with the lyrics and grooving to the beats right from the first listen.”

“My favorite is “I Believe in You.” This is a really nice song about a child learning to ride a bike on their own. My oldest daughter is very smart, so she gets discouraged when something is a little too difficult because she normally catches onto things fairly quickly, so I couldn’t help but think of her while listening to this sweet song.”

“I’ve been really impressed with Call Me A Nerd. The lyrics are catchy, fun and also wonderful as a social learning tool and the music is upbeat and exciting for kids! Although it is unique, it has that same addictive beat as pop music kids like to hear nowadays, but with wholesome educational lyrics. I say ‘wholesome’ with the meaning of it not being about mature and otherwise adult situations that kids need not be concerning themselves with. Call Me A Nerd deals with issues involving school and society in a way that kids can relate to and should relate to; a positive reinforcement about personal strength, academic courage and of course – being okay with who they are.”

“Jonathan Grossman’s “Call Me A Nerd!” has catchy rhythms while encouraging kids to be themselves, whether it be a “nerd,” musician, athlete, or drama geek. Working towards disarming the ever growing bullying trend, this CD allows your kids to be themselves while jamming out.”


“With Call Me A Nerd!, Grossman and Aron have succeeded admirably in [sic] making a record that could be enjoyed by people of all ages. Just as Grossman has encouraged his ever expanding audience herein with I Believe In You, suffice to say that the sentiment is reciprocal.
