Ross Orenstein


An award winning children's songwriter, Ross started his children’s songwriting career licensed by National Crime Prevention Council to write music for McGruff the Crime Dog. He followed that up by creating his own character, the Safety Ape. The Safety Ape was licensed by Liberty Mutual Insurance for a Radio Disney Tour to teach children important safety messages using music as the messenger. Ross produced a puppet production on reading and literacy for Coca-Cola and Reading is Fundamental (RIF) for their Story Traveler Tour featuring his original music. His current project is producing a children’s show with Eco the Butterfly and The Eco Team puppets as a partner in Music as Message. Ross serves on the Board of Directors of the Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival and will be participating in the school visits during SongFest 2017.
