All my work is dedicated to improving life through music and residents and the majority of my work is dedicated to retirement community and nursing home performances. I perform one hour shows, small group music sessions and I stroll while singing for many regular clients.
"We have a good time and my friends at CCRCs are really good at it because they have been having fun longer than anyone!"
We have a great rapport, and as a trained vocalist and guitarist with a music degree and experience in many genres, I have a large repertoire. I deliver upbeat interactive shows weaving familiar songs, standards, and songs from the Great American Songbook. Themes: Songs of Sunshine, Holiday Songs, Patriotic Tunes, Travel and Comin' Home, Jazz Standards, Love Songs, Irish Songs, Old Country, Mardi Gras, Cinco de Mayo, and Singalongs.
For some clients, I stroll with guitar while singing, make room visits, or do small group music sessions with percussion instruments, in addition to 1 hour performances. Playing guitar is very flexible.
In many communities, people get to know me and I love the way their faces light up when they see me because I am a familiar face visiting them to bring something that makes them happy... Music!
Shows always include tunes people can sing along to and are adaptable to the audience because what is most important is that residents have a good time!"
