“Tricia engaged both the parents and the children. Even before the show started, she had 'Miss Peeper', the peeper puppet out and was entertaining the kids as they waited for everyone to arrive. It was fun to see the children giggling as having fun throughout her show.”
— Heather Surface, City of East Lansing Community Events Specialist
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.
