With Maddy and Gina as the garden fairies... a song written for my husband. Lou Spag on bass, Jackie Damsky on violin.
I am lucky to work for the CFCE of the North Shore on a weekly basis, brining my music program to different locations. Super fun free learning experience for families!
My program is interactive, using instruments, scarves, and more. We sing, learn new songs, dance/exercise and read. I incorporate STEM in my original songs, and sing basic instructions to the children, so the littlest of them start to follow. (sitting down, standing up, cleaning up.) I've learned so much from the folks at the CFCE..
CFCE of the North Shore offers SO MUCH MORE for local families.. check them out!
I also work for the Ipswich CFCE, which is registration only programs for town members, on Tuesday mornings for their Birth to Three families. If you live there, check them out! They also do a lot for their families, and all for free!! https://birthtothreeipswich.org/index.html
Salem CFCE is back in action; check out the CFCE of the North Shore's site for their new programs!
I bring my music program to preschools, private birthday parties and celebratory events for families and children. My rates are affordable.
I have experience with memory care individuals, helping families that have a loved one in hospice, with music. I have a large song list that ranges from the early 1900's to the 70's, many different genres. I have performed for large elder audiences, as well as smaller and room-to-room at different facilities. I have references as well.
I am also proudly part of an inter-generational program with the CFCE of the North Shore and one of the assisted living spots I work with on the north shore. It's a joyous music program, that gives so much to the residents and the families. LOVE this!
I have my own band, The MaryBeth Maes Band that I perform with and run, as well as an acoustic duo. I have original music we play as well as covers. I also play with my husband Brian's Band, and am currently the lead Singer for Aerochix, all female Aerosmith cover band. These ladies rock! It's a really fun gig. I am also part of the vocal section for Barry Goudreau's Engine Room, which plays many different venues; all original upbeat rock/blues.
I'm also part of The Sweet Janes, with Kirsten Manville on vocals, guitar, flute and mandolin, Lori Wadkins on vocals, guitar and uke, and Trish DeCaprio on vocals and fiddle. We play some fun acoustic tunes, and the night is always filled with comedy in between!
