My name is Tara Chiusano and I've been entertaining kids for a long time. I have a B.A. degree in Theatre and Dance and a Minor in Music from James Madison University, and have actually been putting my degree to use!
Back in 1999, I worked at a company called the Children's Playshop in Harrisonburg, VA and I acted in various shows for children. I had two wonderful directors, Dr. William Buck and Pam Johnson, who inspired me to pursue a career in acting and in early childhood education. Some of the plays that I was in at the Children's Playshop were Rumplestiltskin, Winnie-the-Pooh, Princess and the Pea, Bremen Town Musicians, and Hansel and Gretel.
After that, I went on to performing in several national tours of A Christmas Carol, Pinocchio, and The Frog Prince. Touring the country performing for thousands of young children was so much fun, but it can be exhausting! I eventually settled down in the D.C. Metro area and decided to work on a career in early childhood education. Currently, I teach about 13 classes with a total of 130 students between the ages of 0-5yrs. I find it to be a very rewarding and satisfying job!
Over time, I was inspired to write several songs for children, songs that teach and songs that entertain. I hope that you and your family like this CD and find my music to be memorable and enjoyable.
