I’ll be playing at the farmer’s market this afternoon (3:30-6:30.) See you there!
…visited my home this morning. My in-house techie Rick said, “Surprise! Now you can have your portfolio up too!” So here are the beginning of pictures… with more to come
The next KidSongs session will begin July 5th.
I am offering two Monday classes, 10:00-10:45am and 4:00-4:45pm.

MORE INFORMATION: Kidsongs is a weekly interactive sing-along for kids ages one-to-four and their caregivers. Expect energy! Expect fun! Kids experience live music and movement activities. Audrey Engdahl leads the singing with acoustic guitar and children play a variety of rhythm instruments. Parents enjoy the calm, engaging atmosphere Audrey creates. Caretakers remain in the classroom and are invited to participate or observe. Audrey is an award-winning performer and teacher.
So, with a couple of hours to spare, I finished decorating a shirt, so our kid could feel a part of the festivities when we visit the Coney Island Mermaid Parade! Kick off the summer in a crowd of New Yorkers in home-made fish costumes! I’ll put the pic on the portfolio page. Look, if any of you are in need of a painted shirt, I’ll hook you up!
Teaching music to pre-schoolers has great benefits. But then the end of the year comes and well, the kids have got to move on. Boo. There I was, walking down the hall, having just finished the last of two classes, thinking about how much they’ve grown in a year, how much more they open their mouths when they sing, how they volunteer their own ideas now… They’re all so darned cute. I’ll miss them.
So I finished the waterfall mural today, and the icing on the cake was a little cameo by the state fish of Hawaii, the Humahumanukanukaaapuaa. Hee hee! Say that one time fast! Lovely. Satisfaction.
If you have an event you’d like us to perform at, drop a line.
Starting in June I’ll be beginning the summer session of my children’s music classes at a few area schools and cafes. Rick and I also have some birthdays and community events lined up. Art-wise, I’m starting a new illustration project next week (one that’s been on the back burner for a while.)
I’m also looking for more work for next year; music in pre-school programs, community spaces, church services, individual lessons, also murals and other artwork. My schedule is about half full at this point. Please email with questions. Thanks!
This is the week! Tomorrow I have my last day of waterfall mural painting scheduled. I’ll post pictures when it’s done. The Ketubah is also nearly done (after a several week absence when it was being officially signed.) I have to do some lettering and enrich the sky/leaf color. Pictures of that too, on the way…
Oh, what a great party! Good idea for a fundraiser, don’t you think? Rent a church space, give parents a 6-10 date night, and entertain thirty kids for a couple hours. How cool. Rick and I played a set of music for the 3-7 year olds, there were movies and crafts, dinner and snacks, pajamas and sleeping bags and a bunch of cool teens to help the whole thing run. A really good night!
Saw a concert last night. Beautiful singers. Sad that my hoarseness and weird asthma-thing lingers. It makes singing along under one’s breath pretty difficult. I’m really interested in finding some new resources about general vocal health and dealing with respiratory disorders as a performer. Any thoughts out there?
