What to Expect
You probably can't tell by my photo but I'm a complete goofball and kids just naturally gravitate towards me (they always have!)! I entertain children through a variety of songs including classic children's sing-along songs, songs with movement as well as my original compositions.
Don't expect your kids to just sit there and be entertained; they will be part of the show! I infuse humor, interactivity and warmth into everything I do....as well as occasional accents, jokes and funny voices! It's all about making the children (and adults) feel comfortable, joyful and included! I also bring props (bean bags, scarves, etc.) to keep it really interactive!
Lastly, I can customize any performance based on the preferences of the kids (and adults!) plus depending on the time of year, I can include season or holiday appropriate material. Your wish is my command!
Sheira Brayer is an award-winning songwriter, entertainer and lover of children. Her two biggest passions in life are kids and music. She's devoted her life to combining these two passions, most notably as the co-creator and lead songwriter for "Dittydoodle Works", an Emmy-nominated pre-school series for Public Television. And, secondly, as an educator of children in pre-schools as well as a private music tutor. Sheira has also contributed her music charitably by composing custom songs for sick children through the Songs of Love Foundation and writing the theme song for the Wounded Warriors Project.
Additional Booking Notes
Depending on the size of the event, I will bring my own sound system. If it's a small group, that won't be necessary. I play both guitar and keyboard but for parties, guitar is usually best as it's more portable (and believe me, the kids will be following me around). As mentioned, I also bring props (scarves, bean bags, etc.).

Influences & Inspiration
How's this for an eclectic bunch?.....
Classical music (I'm classically trained on the piano and have listened to it since I'm young)
And because I'm first generation American, a lot of international/multicultural influences as well (most you've probably never heard of!)
Guitar which I bring; sound system (if needed) which I bring
