music for children
Liza has been doing sing-alongs for children since 2002. Accompanied on her accordion, she sings classic American folksongs and popular children's songs. Her sing-alongs are filled with energy and fun, and lots of audience participation, whether it's fingerplays, movement songs, instrument play or simply singing out loud!

music for seniors
Liza has been doing sing-alongs for seniors since 2008. Accompanying herself on piano, she sings a wide range of repertoire from the 1920's to the 1960's. Liza often allows a song to become an opportunity for audience members to reminisce about songs and performers or past events. When designing her programs, Liza takes into account the age and interests of each senior community, and often shapes her programs around seasonal and holiday themes.
