Hi! I'm Miss Karla.
I'm an energetic young lady who has a passion for children and music! I'm a certified Early Childhood Music Educator with an Associates in Arts, five years of private music teaching, seven years nannying, and am on my second year of running my own Early Childhood Music business under the name Little Parade! I also love my husband, stepson, and sharks :)
Hi from Mr. Sam!
Engaging and undeniably fun, my musical performances are designed to not only give children the time of their lives, but to give them a reason to feel special. With over ten years of experience as a musician and three as an early educator, I am more than just an energetic entertainer: I am an engaged teacher. Whether it's a birthday party, an enriching class, or just a get together with friends and family, I set the tone for laughter and discovery!
Hello! I'm Jen.
Music has been a passion of mine for my entire life, playing various instruments in band and singing in school choirs from elementary school until my college years. For several years I was a lead singer of a local cover band, performing across Chicago everywhere from Navy Pier to the Arlington Race Track. I am a licensed Zumba instructor, in addition to being a Zumbini instructor. In my free time I love cooking, reading, crafting and playing with my sons.
Hi From Tanya!
Tanya earned her initial 200-hour Yoga Alliance Certification through Chicago's CorePower Yoga in 2009 and most recently a Prenatal/Postnatal Yoga Certification with Amala Yoga School in 2017. She has trained with a number of seasoned Yogis in between that time, having completed over 600 hours of Teacher Training to date. Tanya believes in yoga's ability to benefit everyone. She aims to challenge, nurture and inspire her students to use lessons learned on the mat in life off the mat.
In addition to teaching Yoga classes to adults and babies, Tanya also leads guided meditations and hopes to instill mindfulness techniques in her newest Yogini, daughter Arran. She shares all this and more on her Mom blog MommaPrana.
Hey! Drew here.
I've been performing for over 25 years, being fortunate enough to lead bands and write hit songs. I've served as a voice and guitar teacher for students of all ages for the past ten years. I also helped launch a music program for an orphanage in Lombok, Indonesia which now has over 50 students graduating to pursue higher education! I have a huge passion for education and for helping the community and I'm absolutely thrilled to be a part of Tiny Tunes!
Hey! Call me Elli.
I'm a musician, teacher, composer, artist, dancer, chef, and life enthusiast! I graduated from Colombia College with a major in Music in 2014, but have been teaching all ages for 6 years, and performing professionally for 10 years. I love performing, be it for wee ones, weddings, or at big venues with my groovy band! In my free time I like to indulge my curiosity for science - astrophysics, neuroscience, and environmental science!
Miss Leah here!
I am a 200-hour Registered Yoga teacher in Chicago! I graduated from Denison University with a degree in Spanish and International Studies in 2016. I got my yoga certification in Costa Rica last year and have been teaching babies, toddlers, adults and students throughout the city! I love to hike, adventure, travel and learn new things. I believe yoga is for EVERYONE and can’t wait to meet you!
