Children are invited to join in the show from the beginning to the end. Shows have themes outlined on the website or can be adjusted for the needs of the preschool or early childhood facility. Staff is invited to relax and enjoy the time that the kids are involved with learning through interacting with the music, stories, and each other!

Mission Statement:

My mission is to provide a fun inclusive learning environment that encourages the participation of both adults and children. Happy learning includes music!

Philosophy/Belief Statement: The power of music and songs to bring kids and families together is endless. Celebrating the power of music in the lives of children and exchanging ideas together creates strong communities.
Program History:

I began Tunes and Tales by Tricia as a follow up career to a 30 year stint as an early childhood educator. I always had a guitar in the classroom, so the transition seemed totally natural. Now I enjoy traveling around the state of Michigan and bringing families together with songs and musical adventures.
