Music for Little Ones and Families
Action songs and fingerplays to move to, story songs to act out, silly songs to laugh with. Lively and fun, interactive concerts for festivals, special events, early childhood classrooms and family gatherings. A delightful music experience for young children and their parents.
Concerts and Festival Performances
Mary Sue and Tiyi are available for concerts at schools, libraries, and other venues, including summer concerts and festivals. Often used as a fundraiser, family concerts provide a unique way to bring your school, church or civic group together. Family sing-a-longs using lyric handouts or song charts are also available.
Looking for someone to sing and play for a private birthday party for your little one? Special event programs will be geared to your special audience. One of our favorite events was leading a sing-a-long for a wedding reception. It was a big hit!

“Movin’ and Groovin’ with Little Ones”
“Music Makes Readers”
"I have been a professional child care provider for 37 years attending conferences throughout the United States. Tiyi and Mary Sue compare to the "best of the best" nationally recognized songwriters for children's music. I expected to be bored - feeling like "I've seen it all". They had me totally engaged, feeling refreshed and energized with new ideas and activities. Their session will be an incredible asset to my curriculum planning and classroom teaching."
Cheryl Beery, Creative Child Care Family Day Care Provider
In addition to teaching music fulltime, Tiyi writes original children's songs, musicals and books which she illustrates. Her puppet "Root Bear" has his own claim to fame with children near and far and her animal sounds are unrivaled.
