. . . this cd is bound to jazz up a car ride or rainy afternoon. The best part of this album is the way that Daria takes the old and makes it new.

Presenters and Parents

The students and staff love and appreciated your programs. The interaction with our students is wonderful!

Donna Thorpe
Kingsway (Special Education) Learning Center, New Jersey

Your program reached every child in attendance. I was blown away by the amount of interaction with the students (and teachers)! To me thats the best way to make an impression. I hope we get the chance to work together in the future.

Jason Blacketer, Appel Farms

Your performance was fabulous. My daughter Cristine danced during your performance and immediately made her own instrument when we got home. You have really had quite a lasting positive impression on her. I received rave reviews from the staff at the school. Thank you so much for spreading your positive music to us.

Carol Voit, Liberty Bell Elementary

The assembly was excellent. You really captured all of the children’s attention. It’s not easy to keep 6th-8th grade interested in many things. You did a great job interacting with the students. We all had a great time.

Ms. Rita Juchnik, Home School Association
Corpus Christi School South River, New Jersey

Fabulous show! Our school is still buzzing about your performance on Monday!

I love the music you create for all ages focusing on love, hope, peace and different cultures. Thanks for Beautiful Rainbow World and for perfroming “Salaam, Shalom” for our group.

The concert Daria performed at Melmark was amazing. The children at Melmark have varying special needs, but the music performed and the constant interaction between performer and audience reached all who were present at the assembly. Children who are normally lethargic were moving and dancing to the music. Children who are normally reserved were singing along. The children were actively engaged.

Heather Holt, Music Therapist, Melmark School

The audience smiled, sang and had a great time. The kids had an opportunity to try the many interesting instruments that were a part of Daria's program.

The music and exuberance Daria brings to a celebration is a cross cultural learning experience for all ages.

I love Daria and highly recommend her resources. She inspires me so much and I use many of her activities in the kindergarten music class. Her collection of songs is wonderful to hear and to share with my grandchildren and students.
