“I think your CD for kids is excellent.  The songs are catchy.  (I found myself singing along.) The vocals are warm. (I really like your voice.)  The instrumental accompaniments are bright and bouncy. It’s very clear that you have a deep love and passion for the vital work you are doing.”

- Rick Charette

Singer, Songwriter, Educator, Performer of Children's Music

“Rob Duquette’s children’s music is an uplifting reminder that the world truly is a beautiful place. His songs are filled with fun, catchy lyrics that radiate with positive energy. Each time I hear one of his songs, I feel an irresistible urge to start dancing around like a five year old kid!”

- Michael J. Chase

Founder of The Kindness Center and bestselling author of The Radical Practice of Loving Everyone

“Rob’s ability to empower children through his music is a sight to behold. He really connects with them on a level they understand all while promoting kindness. Something we could use a lot more of in this world.”

- Justin Chenette

Maine State Senator

Rob Duquette incorporates world musical genres and infuses important lessons about kindness, empathy and environmental responsibility.  He’s got a few songs that are just plain silly too…..

“My goal was to write children’s music that would not drive parents crazy.  I’m happy when parents confess that they listen even when the kids aren’t in the car!” 

Rob sings his original music accompanying himself on xylophone, guitar, ukelele, and percussion from around the globe.

“If you ever find yourself feeling as if there was nothing in the world that could lift your spirits, you surely haven’t heard Rob Duquette’s new CD, “Love Is Contagious.”

- Kristen DiCara-McClellan

“Wow, very cool stuff! I love your voice, and of course I love your multi-instrumentalizationificationisms. Looks like you really have your technical end together too, nice job on that.”

- Billy Jonas

Founder of The Kindness Center and bestselling author of The Radical Practice of Loving Everyone

Love is Contagious

"Love is Contagious" is Rob Duquette's 5 song debut children's CD. Rob takes his love and studies of the music from America, the Caribbean, Africa and elsewhere and blends it into his own unique and fun music with a message.

“Rob’s children’s music show is fun, entertaining, and sends a great message to kids and adults about kindness! The way he interacts with the crowd keeps the kids engaged, and his spontaneity is great! The music he plays is “contagious”, just like the name of his CD! Thank you for helping to spread kindness wherever you go!

- Jeff Cardoza

School Counselor, Winthrop Grade School

“The students were very engaged and had fun with your performance, great job! I love the way you incorporated body safety and core values, your use of age appropriate terminology reinforced curriculum here in our district. Thank you!”

- Steve Bussiere
