Paula is a mother, grandmother, former Brownie leader, and holds a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a strong focus in Occupational Therapy and minor in Art. Many of her interests & skills were acquired during family time, when Dad took out the guitar for family sing-a-longs. Dad could make up a story, read signs backwards on the run, and used all kinds of tricks to keep the kids entertained. It's Paula's pleasure to replicate this family feeling with others.
Paula has worked with children, with the senior community, and in the health care fields through her music and the arts. She successfully completed a Music Together Teacher Training Workshop developed by the Center for Music and Young Children, Princeton, New Jersey, in June of 2014.
Find Paula performing currently also for the entire family & adults as herself -- Paula C Snyder -- Soulfully Nostalgic Music with a Modern Flair (bluesy-jazzy-folky-pop & show tunes).
Custom lyrics & songwriting are provided through her service called "Verses to Go".
