Mai Cocopelli mit Gitarre

For me, writing children’s music is a matter of the heart. I have the good fortune that this art form has accompanied me from the cradle. The children’s songs that I write seek to return what has been given to me: love of life, joy in singing, and a heart for children.
I am happy to welcome you to my Cocopelli world.

From heart to heart, 

Mai Cocopelli


For all Kindergarten Teachers

Although we realize that German language songs and CDs as well as my activities in schools in Austria might not be at the top of your priority list as an English reader, but you do have the opportunity to learn more about me and my work.
If you only knew how many teachers have asked me to write songs for kindergarten. All the more am I happy to present the kindergarten CD “Im Musikzimmer Nr. 1”. The CD includes the popular cleanup song, simple songs about weather, songs for moving and dancing, and songs for resting.

Georg Hoanzl - Veranstalter GLOBE

"Mai Cocopelli auf der Bühne zu erleben, war für mich ein großes Glück. Egal in welcher Formation – sie findet den richtigen Ton als Sängerin, Musikerin, sowie als begnadete Schauspielerin für Jung und Alt mit einem perfekten Timing. Alles kommt charmant und scheinbar mühelos über die Bühne. Selten so viele glückliche Menschen verschiedensten Alters an einem Ort gesehen!“

Klaus Eckel - Cabaret artist

"We parents all seem to know these concerts and films you see side by side with your children and think to yourself: "I do this for the love of my children". It's different with Mai Cocopelli, where I sit in the theatre for my love, but I think it's great that my children enjoy it just as much as I do."

Kinderlieder Testimonial

Rolf Zuckowski - famous children’s singer/songwriter

With you, dear Mai, a new dimension in children’s songs begins. How could you stay hidden from us for so long? Seeing you in your element left a lasting impression that will resound for a long time. I hope very much to be able to experience you repeatedly.

Kinderlieder Testimonial

Gernot Kremser - artistic director, Posthof Linz

First: congratulations! Conjuring two sold-out shows on the Posthof stage takes much, much energy and power. Second: My compliment on how you enthuse, move and lead your audience through such a show.

Floro - Concert organizer

Dear Mai, a few days have passed and we really must say THANK YOU again. What happened at ALFA Steyrermühl was really awesome. The heart blood and passion with which you perform is really great. It's fun for us to organize concerts like this. I hope we'll see each other soon again. Floro, your concert organizers from the Salzkammergut

Karoline Reischl - School principal ISZ Wels

The atmosphere at the musical was simply fantastic. Mai Cocopelli enthused all children with and without disabilities, so that all pupils were encouraged to participate with joy. I have never seen this in this sensational and grandiose way before. A warm thank you for our musical journey together.

Martin Mühlgrabner - Concert organizer

Mai Cocopelli has beamed over 250 children with parents and grandparents through the rainbow into the land of childrensongs, animals, fairies and astronauts. She is an approachable star and the whole band is sympathetic and absolutely professional. Thank you for this wonderful afternoon - you have made hundreds of children's hearts dance.

Manuela Mayer - rhythmist

Thank you for your open and authentic way of doing the workshop with us and for conveying so much joy of life. In a wonderful way, you manage to rediscover the child in yourself and you feel how important it is to take children seriously and to value them above all.

Dafne Corlu - Yoga teacher

For over a year I have been teaching yoga for children from the age of 5. A friend told me about you, so I ordered your songs. I find your music very beautiful, funny, joyful, spirited and then smooth again, simply colorful and inspiring. Perfect for my child yoga! Thank you Mai for your presence and inspiration.

Erika Jakob - Teacher

The children love your songs - some of them reflect a good mood, others go deep into the heart. And some do both! Thank you for your wonderful music

Your family Viehböck

We remember so many of your great concerts. From a festival to your filling entire concert halls... You've come a long way and we're very happy to have accompanied you along the way! As ever, we will keep checking your website to see what's new. We even saw you on KiKa!

Nicola Diwold - Teachers' College of the Diocese of Linz

Our teachers love Mai and her music! With her original and heartfelt songs, her creative impulses for musical work with children, and her rousing manner, she is one of the absolute highlights in our continuing education program.

Sabine Bredenbach - Music teacher

Dear Mai, when I saw you for the first time, I thought some angel had fallen from heaven. I thank God that you are on Earth. Seeing so much authenticity, pleasure, love, joy, creativity and talent all combined is simply heavenly.

Dear Mai! There are many singer/songwriters for children, but you are the best! Your songs are pleasure for adult ears as well. Definitely three thumbs up!!!

Kinderlieder Testimonial

Hannah Peterat - Fan

Cocopelli is a hit! All the children participate! If anyone should forget, missed fun and joy they will regret. Cocopelli is a hit. (Written and drawn by a six-year-old.)

Kinderlieder Testimonial

Leo und Verena Fellinger - Kunstbox

If you believe that you know how children participation concerts function because you have attended such a concert, you need to see a concert by Mai Cocopelli. Her compositions are ahead of their time and Mai Cocopelli sings wonderfully. Very, very great performance.
