When he was a boy, his father bought him a wire recorder and Garfunkel spent his afternoons singing, recording and playing it, so he could hear defects and learn to improve. At his mitzvah bar in 1954, Garfunkel sang as a singer, performing more than four hours of his repertoire for his family. He met his future singing partner Paul Simon in sixth grade on PS 164 when they were both chosen in the elementary school graduation work, Alice in Wonderland. Garfunkel has said that Simon was first interested in singing after hearing Garfunkel sing a performance of Nat King Cole’s Too Young in a school talent show. Between 1956 and 1962, the two acted together as Tom and Jerry, occasionally performing in school dances. Their idols were The Everly Brothers, whom they imitated in the use of narrow vocal harmony in two parts. In 1957, Simon and Garfunkel (Tom & Jerry) recorded the song Hey, Schoolgirl and the single reached number 49 on the charts. Simon and Garfunkel rose to fame in 1965 with their hit single The Sound of Silence, which earned them even more fame when the song was used in the soundtrack of the iconic movie The Graduate (1967).
