Before I was a storyteller I wrote songs for children. Drawing on my musical education and performing, and inspired by having Garage Band on my new computer, I started writing and recording music for my grandchildren. Soon I was producing cds, usually playing all the parts myself and having a ball doing it.
My music was picked up by ChooseMyPlate.gov, Recess Music Label and even by Toyota Motor Company for a commercial. I continue to license my songs to various production companies worldwide.
Looking back, I realize this was the very beginning of my storytelling career because chidren’s songs are really another way to tell a story. I continue to incorporate this body of work into my performances.
