What to Expect:
Up close and personal, Grandma Paula brings her guitar, engages with the guests, gives a little song history, sings or leads songs, tells stories, invites attendees to be involved/sway/dance, and does other spontaneous things. Grandma Paula draws & colors paper bag puppets, brings other simple projects when appropriate, and can prepare special theme sets. Focused on back-to-basics nostalgic music, everyone should have some good, clean, educational fun.
Grandma Paula brings her own guitar. We need some open space (in or out) to move around.
Grandma Paula stays acoustic to be up close and personal and usually accompanies herself with a guitar. However, she also plays piano when available.
Amplification is available*, but changes the tone of event from engaging up close and personal to more of a show style or background music.
She can come fully dressed as Grandma Paula (pictured), jeans and Grandma Paula T-shirt, or as her more elegant self (Paula C Snyder- Soulfully Nostalgic Music with a Modern Flair).
Selections vary per age group, and occasion, etc., and generally are simple kids songs. Grandma Paula can prepare custom original songs if requested* and often includes some of her other kid/family friendly original music. The length of song sets vary as well, based on the ages and attention span of the attending age group.
