growing up too fast?

Paula C Snyder as "Grandma Paula" offers a back-to-basics approach in kids entertainment and creative play.  Grandma Paula performs nostalgic kids favorites (songs you and your parents may remember), original songs for kids, and engages children in creative/imaginative play, sing-along, dance, simple games, and related activities.

A soft mix of serious and silly, Grandma Paula's personality is warm & approachable. She self-accompanies her vocal music with acoustic guitar for up-close & personal engagement. (She also self-accompanies with piano.)  Utilizing available tools & supplies, Grandma Paula often creates as she goes!
