NEW: Making Up Songs with Greta
A lively and interactive sing-along in which we create and adapt existing songs and stories through music and sign language. We'll also explore ways to make musical instruments out of household objects! The program is adaptable to each audience: preschool, school age, or a mixture of all ages.

Customized Programs 
Greta will create a music program to complement your individual Summer Reading Program and other special event! Past themes include "Don't Bug Me ... I'm Reading," "Musical Clues," "Blast Off With Books," and "Teddy Bear Picnic." Don't be shy - ask what she can do for you!

Crazy Camp Songs - If you want a traditional summer theme, this lively sing-along for you! It includes traditional and original songs that are perfect for singing around the camp fire, in the family car ... and at the library... with accompaniment on guitar and lap dulcimer.

Also recommended: 

La Musica Es Magica/Music Is Magic (bilingual)
This spirited, bilingual sing-along program celebrates the magic of music with songs in Spanish, English, and sign language; commentary is in Spanish and English. Actual songs vary according to the make-up of the audience (mostly Spanish speaking; mostly English, or a combination). Greta plays guitar, and brings her wonderful collection percussion instruments for selected members of the audience to play.

A recipient of Young Audiences' 2008 Sunburst Award, Greta has appeared internationally in concerts, arts festivals, schools, and on television and radio. Her music is licensed to numerous video soundtracks and publishing projects, including Scholastic's Circle Time series. Her "Music Is Magic" video has been broadcast on the Learning Channel.
