The kids loved Sarah. She has a great voice and plays the guitar very well. She arrived well before the start time and interacted with the kids (my daughter did not leave her side once she saw all the instruments) . I would definetely recommend her without hesitation.
Sarah was great with the kids. She was exactly what we were looking for for our event. Friendly and the children loved her. Thank you!

What to Expect
Shows usually begin with a hands on musical rhythm or warmup to get everyone tapping. We do some music and movement songs then get right into playing the different instruments as a band. I bring ukes and lots of rhythm instruments for the kids to play along. I'll lead them as a band on a variety of age-appropriate or requested songs. We will also do some scarf play and parachute play if space and crowd size permits. As the energy ramps up we will do some full body jumping and dancing tunes then end with a cool-down goodbye song.
Sarah is a mother, entertainer and piano teacher. Educated at Berklee College of Music and Emerson College, she performed on tour with rock and pop acts until deciding to settle down and have a family. Her Cds Jazz for Little Jumpers and Jazz Pour Les Bebes (Jazz for Babies) have both won Parents' Choice Awards. She continues to enjoy entertaining and educating children with music. She can also be found in Boston and NY jazz clubs singing with her father pianist Herb Gardner.
