Jean Schwartz loves to sing for

and with children and their families.

With her guitar and musical toys

she brings to her audiences traditional folk

and silly songs, and an occasional original.

Her audiences are always encouraged

to participate, whether singing along

or shaking out their sillies.

Jeanís checkered musical past includes learning to play the accordion at age 4,

studying flute at the New England Conservatory of Music

(then getting a B.A. in geology and enduring countless bad jokes about "rock" music)

and singing with the Opera Company of Boston and the Boston Lyric Opera.

Jean began playing the guitar after her son was born in 1987,

and found singing with children to be what she liked best of all!

In addition to doing kidsí shows and family concerts, Jean has a regular schedule

singing with children in Greater Boston and Metro-West area preschools,

and is a frequent performer for Boston Public Library children's programs.

She is a member of the Folk Song Society of Greater Boston

and a lifetime member of Folk Alliance International.
