...All I can say is...WHAT A JOY!! We had a party of 10 children aging from 2 years old all the way up to about 7 years old, and Devorah captivated all the children and adults for hours. Between her wonderful guitar playing and singing, very fun show, where she interacted with EVERYONE, and the amazing animal balloons, SHE WAS A HIT!!!! The children had an amazing time, and me, as a parent needs to do nothing more than just enjoy the show!! Devorah used some of my son's favorite people, grandma, and grandpa, uncles etc. ...to get my son' to interact, and in a very loving way, included every child in the fun. I would most definitely recommend Devorah to anyone! And, I will think of her when I need anything along these lines again. Thank you Devorah! You were the highlight of our party!!!!!

I write with utmost enthusiasm to express my gratitude for and admiration of the work of Devorah, who has been our private music teacher for the past 4 years. She brings the magic of her personality and music program, teaching the fundamentals of music and movement. Using carefully selected music, impeccably organized and planned classes... Devorah develops personal relationships with her students and harvests their success...Devorah conducts herself with utmost professionalism...and clearly brings her heart, care, thoughtfulness into her work...She brings the gift of high quality music education, genuine nurturing of the student's development, and the most personal and warm, yet unfailingly professional manner with her students and clients. I wholeheartedly endorse and recommend Deovrah's work with children (and people) of all ages, and in any capacity. She enriches the lives of her students, brings endless smiles to the people around her, and she is an inspiration to educators everywhere.

Devorah has the patience of a saint! She spent two days face painting at an event with me and she was patient, caring and came out with some of the most beautiful face paintings I've seen! I would hire her again and your should too! Not only did she get herself there, but she also got a second to paint for both days which was immensely helpful . She is organized and made sure they had everything they needed in order to be professional and do a great job! She is outstanding!!

Devorah came to my daughter's 5th birthday party, and she was such a hit. We had 22 kids at the party. She got them up moving with singing, puppets, and dancing for about 1.5 hours. The kids loved her!...She did animal balloons and face painting and even when she was done with the kids, she went around to make sure they all still had their balloons, and if they didn't or if they wanted another balloon, she gave them what they wanted. I would totally recommend her for a party! She was amazing! Thank you!
-Celia Munk, Albuquerque, NM
Devorah has a magical presence and an amazing ability to keep very young kids engaged throughout her music classes. She tunes into each child's creativity, gifts, and interests. I love that she introduces real musical concepts in a fun way and that the children connect with music and movemnet. I highly recommend signing up for Devorah's music program!

I would like to highly recommend Devorah for any event you might have. She is awesome!! She arrived early in her adorable costume, and got set up before our picnic started.

She is a professional, and she is great with kids! They loved her! We will be using her again.

I hired Devorah to do a singing balloon telegram for my daughter's birthday. She was great with her routine, the ballon bouquet, and the ballon shapes were great! My daughter was so shocked and surprised, and she and her co-worker's enjoyed a special time with Devorah! Thanks so much!

We have had Devorah come to our neighborhood picnic for the last number of years and everybody loves her! The kids love her face painting which by the way is intricate, detailed and amazing.

Earlier this year we were lucky enough to have a visit from Devorah during our Summer Camp program, and it was such a treat for both the children and the teachers! Devorah has such an enchanting manner of performing and engaging children - they were immediately enraptured by her adorable costume and they were captivated by her lovely music and wonderfully entertaining humour puppet show. We also were so impressed by the face paitning and the children were thrilled to have their faces so artfully done! Not all preforamer have that magical touch with children that Devorah has. Her playful sweet and fun perform is the perfect for a group of any ages.

Good morning Devorah! I was sooo impressed with your artistry of face painting and balloon twisting. The little one's faces were amazing, not to mention I was feeling much like a little kids myself! I couldn't help but show my butterfly off to everyone I came in contact with! I hope we will be seeing a lot more of you and your work in the future.

Thank you, Devorah for the wonderful face painting and fun for the kid's tent. The face painting was so well received by the kids. I never realized - but your designs were awesome. So, thank you! We look forward to working with you again next year! May the joy you brought to all those children return to you 10 fold.

We loved having Devorah come over to entertain young guests at our daughter's 7th birthday party. Devorah was very patient in answering all of our questions before booking. She is punctual, came fully prepared, and immediately took over the duties of entertaining about 20 kids - ages 2 through 9. All through the show, balloon art, face painting, and various other games, she kept the kids engaged and I could tell they were just captivated by her presence. Even the adults found the hour and a half that she spent with the kids entertaining. She was gentle with the kids, guiding them through all the games, and answered all of their requests and questions with a smile. My kids loved Devorah, and we would recommend her wholeheartedly.
- Ash, Albuquerque, NM
Devorah joined us for my son's 7th birthday party, and she was a big hit! The children at the party really enjoyed her show and especially loved her face painting and expertly designed balloon animals. This birthday will be memorable for everyone who attended.
Thank you, Devorah!

First let me start by saying that it was a pleasure having Devorah at our Child Abuse Prevention Event. She was very professional and the children really enjoyed her face painting and her balloon characters. Devorah even stayed longer after the event was over to ensure that every child got their face painted. She is a true professional, and I highly recommend her for parties, events, and festivals. I will definitely book her for our next event.

Hello Devorah, Thank you for making my granddaughter Sarah's 7th birthday party at Sweeny Elementary the 'very best party ever!'...Sarah's exact words! The 24 other students were wowed by your show.

I cannot say enough positive things about Devorah! She was an absolute hit at my son's 4th birthday party in Albuquerque! We had kids from 4 all the way to 12 , and they all loved her! She as able to bring all the ages together into a wonderful cohesiveness with her talented guitar and signing, hilarious show, creative balloon animals, and absolutely stunning face painting! And, to top it all off, she did all of this seamlessly in a couple of hours! She carries such a nurturing, gentle, caring, and PATIENT energy that all of the children immediately respond to. She has a way with them., to say the least! My son can take a long time to warm up to people, and Devorah tuned right into his needs, making him feel special but not overwhelmed! I can't appreciate this awareness enough! She was professional, organized, punctual, AND able to flow with the waves a children's party can bring. I can sincerely say, the gathering was a 100 times better with Devorah. We will definitely be hiring her for future parties! I can't recommend her enough! Thank you , Devorah! You made my son's birthday party unforgettable! You were the highlight of the party and he's STILL talking about you!

We hired Devorah for our son's 5th birthday party, and there were about 25 kids at the event from 1 1/2 to 5 1/2. She got their attention as soon as she set up, and kept it for the entire performance. She was charming and fun, and engaging, and the kids had a ball!! It was exactly what the party needed - she was terrific!!
Katie K., Santa Fe, NM
Thank you Devorah for helping to make my son's birthday so special!! The children loved your music and puppets. I was impressed by how well you connected with the children and how responsive they were to your show. The balloon animals were also a highlight of the party! I very much appreciate your professionalism - showing up when you said you would, your reasonable pricing, and of course the warm rapport you maintained with the kids. It's clear that you love what you do!
