Melita is available to play music at your child’s birthday party as well as other private events. With her guitar, fun songs, puppets, scarves to dance with and instruments for the kids to play, she will engage the children and help make your party lots of fun! Available solo or with Octopretzel band members.
UPDATE: Melita is now available for virtual birthday parties. These include all the same fun elements as the live parties, like puppets, story boards and (home) jam sessions with instruments, but can include people from all over the world. Melita is happy to tailor the party to your child’s interests, and includes a lot of engaging songs, where kids (or parents) can write in their ideas.
Parties are typically 30-45 minutes. Please email directly for prices, as there are variations in the fee depending on distance , number of musicians and length of time playing. (Post-pandemic update: Melita is willing to work with people on the fee depending on their financial circumstances).
“Melita played at our son’s 3rd birthday party, and she was amazing! She has a very warm and friendly style and kept a large group of children ages 3 to 6 mesmerized in our living room for over 30 minutes with her interactive songs and beautiful voice. The kids loved her, we loved her, and our son’s preschool teacher was so impressed that she demanded Melita’s contact information immediately to try to get her to play regularly at the school. Melita was also a pleasure to work with. She was on time, very professional, and generally just made our son’s party easy and joyous.”~Sarah Weinstein and Don Falk
“Melita sang at our daughter’s third birthday party at the park, and we couldn’t have been happier. She is fun, engages the kids, and can work well with a mixed age group. The songs were fun too, inspiring the kids to dance, or just listen attentively. Melita is very respectful to the kids, and she connects with them easily. I would highly recommend her!”~Mirit Sela
“Melita and Jen played at my daughter’s birthday party a few months ago. They literally made the party. All of our guests were asking about them afterwards – we were so happy we decided to go with them. They Both of them had such a magical way of interacting with the children. They kept them entertained the whole time. And Jen’s puppets were a hit!”~Jessica Greenberg
