About Nitter Critter Productions

How it all began...

Nitter Critter, the character, is the creation of a child. Nitter Critter Productions is an attempt to introduce what could be viewed as an intimidating subject in a delightful way. Frequently I notice beginning students play a chord when asked to play a scale, or continually struggle to remember how to finger a scale or cadence, or have difficulty describing in their own words what these terms represent. As a result, I started this venture.

My son is 11 is and thinks Nitter Critter is awesome. He enjoys the humorous touch that is added to what can be a dry, boring subject. My seven year old daughter loves reading Nitter Critter's lines as she and Mrs. Dunbar go though the lessons. He really captures a child's outlook and thoughts and brings the lessons to life.
