So you want to hire an educational entertainer for a family or kids event...?

Greetings! My name is Tricia and I have had the pleasure of working with kids and their families for over 30 years.  As a classroom teacher, I kept my guitar and puppets in my classroom as teaching tools and it was a natural and fun way to create an educational environment. As a result, Tunes n Tales by Tricia was the perfect encore profession! Now I get to provide exciting, interactive, family entertainment to child care centers, libraries, schools, pediatric units, festivals and family events all over central Michigan.
   It gives me joy to invite kids (and sometimes adults too) up to the stage with me to join in on stories, play a tambourine, and become part of the show. I can almost "see" the self esteem grow on some kiddos. I also get a kick out of how a simple song can make someone's day.  I love what I do and I want to make sure that your children and / or families have the best experience possible and that the day is as stress free as is feasible for you, the event planner. 
        Contact me with any questions and I will get back with you as soon as possible.

"My kids enjoyed your music greatly and said, 'this is way better than watching a movie!' I hope I will be able to book you next summer!"

Tricia engaged both the parents and the children. Even before the show started, she had 'Miss Peeper', the peeper puppet out and was entertaining the kids as they waited for everyone to arrive. It was fun to see the children giggling as having fun throughout her show.”
