WHAT'S YOUR STORY?
I am a native NYer who has tons of experience both as a singer and with kids of all ages. Aside from babysitting for years, I taught and sang to kids at Little Maestros for three years before branching off as a solo artist. I continue to work with kids today at private birthday parties as well as events with my friend Ruark Downey of Roots With Ruark. I am also a professional singer, songwriter and actor who plays (adult) gigs all over the tri-state area and was a finalist on American Idol (Season 12). Recently I sang on the Grammy award winning children's album "Home" by Tim Kubart of Sprouts' Chica the Chicken! My classes and parties consist of singing (a capella), rhythm making, movement, storytelling, parachute time, fun with shakers and of course, bubbles. Music varies from Pop, Motown, Jazz, Disney and Showtunes to classic kid favorites.
WHAT ARE YOUR RATES?
Classes: $20 per single/drop-in class or $75 for a package of 5 ($15/class) to be used at any time.
Parties: They vary based on what the day entails. For a 30-45min basic party of music with me on vocals and a live acoustic guitarist (two people total), plus sound equipment (if needed) the cost is $300. Additional costs come in if there are a lot of specific song requests (though I'm pretty good about fitting most in!), extra travel time to the party, extra equipment needed, additional musicians, extended time etc. Everything is totally customizable to what you're looking for. This also includes, if you want, parachute time, bubbles, singing a book and playing with shakers/maracas/scarves. If you want kids to keep the shakers/maracas, we can discuss an additional cost for that as well. You can check out some reviews over at my booking site on GigSalad.

WHAT KIND OF MUSIC WILL YOU SING?
I'm primarily a pop soul singer with years of experience in kids music. I can completely tailor it to what you want, but usually do a mix of pop, Motown, kid standards, nursery rhymes and more. I also have a toddler who demands that I make music with him daily. I love kids, I love music and I love introducing "non-kid-music" to kids!
