Workshops, Classes, Concerts
"I wanted to tell you how much we appreciate you and your program. Each time I walk through I am so happy that the children have an opportunity to learn about music in such a fun, active, enjoyable way. You treat the children with respect, draw a line where it is needed and provide a Monday that is always filled with fun! Thanks so much." -- Sue Tyrie, Director, Bedford Village Morning School
For Teachers: Continuing Ed. Workshops email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the needs of your center. Combining centers is a cost-effective way to have a workshop. Teachers learn the importance of music and movement for their students' overall development with games, movement, puppets, dances and more fun activities! OR Amy will bring 20 ukuleles and teach the whole group how to play.
For Children, Teachers, Parents: Songs & Puppets Concert for small or large groups.
Grow Your Own Music: For children and their teachers, I play several instruments (ukulele, guitar, banjo), teach songs about the earth, gardens, insects, etc, using movement, fingerplays and puppetry.
I Sing Every Day: Family Singalong Concert & humorous puppets for your community, request a theme from Amy!
Pajama Party: An evening program of lullabies, singalongs, gentle puppets and soothing instruments, perfect for family nights. BYO Bear (Teddybear theme available)

All of the in-school programs introduce several instruments, are suitable for children ages one to ten, and are hands-on, participatory movement-oriented programs. Small or large groups, indoors or out.
