Tara offers drama and improvisation programs for all ages, and percussion and song circles for children ages 3 to 6. These programs can be modified to suit day care centers, schools, or home-school curriculums and schedules. Her program offerings include:

Pre-k and Kindergarten song and percussion circles, and/or interactive imaginary journeys for groups of 5 or more.

Theatrical plays invented by Tara in collaboration with participants ages 6-10. Perfect for a one day to week long school project exploring thematic dramatization and performance. Tara can direct children in creating a play based on: multi-cultural myths, story books, fairy tales, or impromptu group stories. She has a knack for valuing and integrating the ideas of children by fully including and engaging them in the creative process.

Current Work Experience:

Tara teaches both Acting and Early Childhood Music at the 'Bedford Youth Performing Company' (BYPC) in Bedford, NH.  In Tara's acting classes, elementary and middle school aged students experience a fun and challenging curriculum of drama and acting activities. Each class performs for their family and friends throughout the school year to showcase their development. Check it out at http://www.bypc.org/theatre.html

Toddlers and young children sing, drum, dance, play the piano, and learn basic music notation with Tara in BYPC's Early Childhood Music Program which combines the ‘Musik Garten’ curriculum with her own joyful and fun-loving music program.  Please go to http://www.bypc.org/child.html to learn more!
