TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a kids music artist and perform my music and live show for children ages 0 to 7 in several settings, including classrooms, assemblies, libraries and festivals. I've performed primarily in southern California at venues such as: 41st Annual Head Start conference, Natural History Museum, Skirball Center, Kidspace Museum, Zimmer Museum, McCabe's, Levitt Pavilion, Grand Park and San Diego's New Children's Museum . For more info, visit www.birdiesplayhouse.com or see additional Bio Info below.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that children have their own learning styles and ways of absorbing the world around them. I expose them to music and new ideas by getting them involved in an interactive way (also with directions built right into the song to act like animals or freeze or run, etc.). In my live show, I also use hand movements and dance moves, and props such as streamers, scarves and puppets. I strive to write such catchy pop melodies and inject irresistible beats in my songs (with the help of world class musicians) that adults will also feel moved to dance. I try to inject the most fun I can into the learning process.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have won the following prestigious awards (with educators and parents as judges) for my music CDs: GOLD - National Association of Parenting Publications CD OF THE YEAR - Creative Child Magazine Awards SILVER - Parents Choice STARRED REVIEW - School Library Journal I have won the following for my live shows for children: RISING STAR - Gigmasters TOP 10 FINALIST - Red Tricycle Magazine's Totally Awesome Awards
