The performance is fun, engaging, and encourages singing along and movement. The songs are a mix of well known, family friendly songs ("Shake Your Sillies Out", "Octopus's Garden", "You Are My Sunshine", for example), and Miss Lynn originals like "Animal Best Friends" and "Eat Your Greens". There is always a song or two where I ask the audience for help with lyrics, and we improvise parts of the songs. This engages the kids even more, and it's always hilarious and amusing to hear the things they come up with! My holy trinity of inspiration is Mary Poppins, The Muppets, and Mr. Rogers. I try to embody the whimsical sternness that commands respect from Mary Poppins, the humor of the Muppets, and the emotional connectivity of Mr. Rogers.
I offer 30 minute and 50 minute performances. 30 minutes are best for groups of toddlers-kindergarten (daycares, playgroups, parent centers, etc). 50 minute performances are best for 5-11 year olds who can cognitively engage a little more, and get excited about helping to improvise song lyrics (libraries, festivals, concerts, etc).

"Thank you for the wonderful music program at the Edwards Library. The music was engaging and appropriate for the age group. It was great to see the kiddos up and moving and I thought you did a wonderful job actively involving them in the songs."
