Tiny Tunes is a birth child of joys and challenges that come with motherhood. Being a stay at home mom I found it puzzling to keep my little one, Ryan, entertained and engaged. I tried various kids' music venues and other session-based classes but with the hectic schedule of being a mom, I found it hard to make it to every class, let alone on time.

After countless bursts of creative ideas and a few sleepless nights, I decided to bridge the gap and launch Tiny Tunes Studio. I knew that having Ryan participate in various music and movement classes would help him come out of his shell and become socially and emotionally aware early in his life. This is what inspired my vision for Tiny Tunes – to provide kids in our community with fun and engaging entertainment; nurture positive social interaction and build a sense of compassion towards each other, our community and the world at large. I hope other parents share my vision and will join me in the effort to build our own community of kind, thoughtful and responsible (little) individuals!

Before I was a busy mom, I was an active philanthropist, volunteering at many projects with Chicago Cares. I have also led several philanthropy events at my past corporate jobs, and most recently, I spearheaded a fundraiser to benefit non-profits fighting to cure cancer. I believe that in order to grow you have to contribute first. Giving back to the community is a priority for me and it is important that I incorporate this concept into Tiny Tunes. Outside of occasional toy/necessities drives and fundraisers, Tiny Tunes will host a music class for just $5 every first Wednesday of the month - all you have to do is bring a new or gently used article of children’s clothing, toy or another necessity item to be donated to a local children’s charity.

Together, we can make the world a better place one (musical) note at a time!
