Ms. Janine is now on iTUNES!!
"Hey-Ya Ho" (Hi-Ya Ho) Native American Indian children's song. ENJOY!!
Ms. Janine grew up in Brookfield, CT. When asked “What do you want to be when you grow up?” She would always say “A singer”. So, she sang her way through elementary school and right into high school and then learned to play the guitar. She continued to sing in area senior centers, weddings, memorial services and adult sing alongs. Once Janine had her own children, her love for children’s music was born!
Ms. Janine has been in the children’s music business
since 1992. She was in the Deaf Studies Program at Northwestern CT Community College in Winsted, CT. Her love for children’s music and American Sign Language is obvious to anyone who’s ever seen her perform. Combining her two passions together has landed her a very busy full time music career.
This mother of two is in and out of childcare centers and elementary schools around CT and NY. She also enjoys performing at a few public sing & sign alongs a year.
Teaching little kids OR big kids simple signs through the music they already know and love is an easy, fun way to learn.
Children’s birthday parties keep her busy almost every weekend, but she loves it!
