Color me happy!   This photo shows me living my dream as a children's musician in Romeo, Michigan .... and the venue is filled with families of all kinds and definitions.
We are singing and having a great time together!  This particular day there are parents and grandparents in the mix, as well as teachers and other caring adults . The kids are learning about language, socialization, and rhythm.  We are moving our bodies and engaging all of the parts of our brains, but we are having far too much fun to be aware of it. 
   I call what I do "Tunes n Tales by Tricia'  and I spend most days planning and implementing programs for kids. These programs are carefully designed to assure that the kids will be involved with as much of the actual presentation as possible. The children become part of the songs and stories, by using their bodies, musical instruments, props, or becoming a character. Moms, Dads, Grandparents and kids are all welcome to participate.
    TNT LIVE! is my latest cd venture and features a song by Charlie Hope called "The Frog Song" . It's a crowd favorite because of the giggles that are inspired as well as the dramatic engagement. My background as an elementary classroom teacher has helped immensely to form my present reality as a family performer.
"My kids enjoyed your music greatly and said, 'this is way better than watching a movie!' I hope I will be able to book you next summer!"
