Children's birthdays are among the most precious occasions in our lives, so it's an honour to help create magical memories for you and your child. Whether you're looking for entertainment for babies, toddlers or children, Music with Maya offers excellent live music, dancing, smiles, games and props that are fun for the whole family.
The three different styles of birthday party I offer are shown below, but get in touch for more information or to talk about any other ideas you might have.
Babies first birthday is a special occasion, so make it a memorable one! At this age, the entertainment is as much about the parents as it is about the babies! I make sure to entertain your guests of all ages and take the pressure off the host.
Playing guitar and singing a mixture of music ranging from nursery songs to well known pop and jazz, the party will be full of games, percussion, colourful props and bubbles!
The entertainment lasts for about 45 minutes (due to baby sized attention spans) and ends with the anticipated chorus to bring out the birthday cake and help blow out the candles.
Toddler & Children's Parties
At this stage, you'll be looking for something desperately to keep all that energy entertained! Why not leave it to me?
Children from this age are bursting with excitement when it comes to their special day. I'll make sure to fill their party with an hour of music and games centred around what they'll love and engage with at their age.
Whether it's pirates or princesses, jungle or ocean creatures, I'll fill it with colourful scarfs, puppets, pass the parcel or musical bumps and make a birthday party they will treasure forever.
Many reasons can stop us from all being able to get together in one place, but that shouldn’t stop the celebrations!
My zoom parties are an interactive space where every child is included. Together we'll choose a theme for everyone to get involved with, whether through fancy dress or toys, and music to match. On top of this, I'll provide an optional creative activity to do before the party to help everyone get in the mood. You’ll also receive a video recording of the party to
treasure ever after.
Once you’ve chosen your theme, you’ll be sent a personalised online invitation you can send to your loved ones to set the magic in motion.
*All parties include your own personalised online invitation and a special musical gift for the birthday little one. The prices above are estimates and each party will be priced depending on the number of participants, age of children and location of event.
Events & Special Occasions
Can't make it to class? Why not host your own Music with Maya class in the privacy of your home or garden! It's a great way to bring your friends and their children together and have a lot of fun. You can book as a one-off or weekly event.
Other Special Occations
It’s not all about birthdays! And it’s not all about the kids! Family friendly musical entertainment can be an enriching addition to any celebration. Be that Parent or Grandparent Birthday Parties, Weddings, Anniversaries, Naming Ceremonies or Christenings! Get in touch to talk about your special occasion and I’ll curate the right entertainment and ambience for you.
Festivals & Events
Having experience playing in all types of events as a professional musician, I'd be overjoyed to bring my family-friendly concerts to your festivals and community events. I also have experience hosting music and story sessions in libraries and bookshops! Get in touch to discuss your event and what I can offer you.
Soulful Jazz Duo
As well as baby music, I also perform in a Jazz Duo called Rendezblues available to hire as a two piece (or more). Whether it's for a work function, wedding reception, or evening soiree, see our website for more information or get in touch for your personalised quote.
"Rendezblues are soulful jazz duo who perform a mixture of classic jazz standards and tasteful soul with hints of French chansons along the way"
“Maya came to sing at our daughter’s 5th birthday party. I could describe Maya’s performance as lively, relaxed, entertaining… Or I could write that I highly recommend her for creating a fun, happy atmosphere with her beautiful voice, music and smile: all of which is true.
However, I think that the best way is to report some of the comments from our guests: ‘Wow, it’s like a proper mini gig for children and parents!’, ‘She has an amazing voice’, ‘The singer was great: my son was mesmerized’… and several parents asked for Maya’s contact details afterwards. Last words for the birthday girl: ‘Maya, she is top!’.”
