Singing Classes & More

Yes!  Classes in the Morning.  You have been asking for them and I’m giving them in November.  I have lined up a great space for us to sing and dance in and two times to choose from.  The whole family comes and sings along, it is always so much fun.  Newsletter subscribers are the first to know about these classes, so sign up before I let the rest of the world know.  See, it pays to subscribe!

What can I say?  I want Saskatoon folks to have a chance to hear some of the new music and purchase a cd too.  This one is by donation to the Milk Money Fund for the Saskatoon Food Bank, to purchase infant formula.


There will be great door prizes, bracelets & concert coupons as well as Tim Bits, donated by Janna Dutton.  Come along for the concert and bring friends, it’s all happening at Confederation Mall at the Store Front location, across from Urban Planet.  I can’t wait to sing some of my new tunes for you.


Facebook Contest!

If you are on facebook, I am running a great contest for a year pass for SSCI Indoor Playgroup, valued at $250.  Check it out, it’s pinned to the top of my page, Singing with Sylvia Fan Page.  I’ve just released my first single off the new CD, ‘Shine’ for Music Monday.  Check it out.  Remember, you can download, or stream all my music on all platforms.  We’ll be singing this one right off the top!

Yes it is cold outside, but it’s a great day to send you a note with all my news!  The Jelly Jam on Feb. 14th was a fabulous success and we had such fun. Can you tell this skirt was my favourite part? lol  Gearing up for the A-May-Zing Fling on May 2nd and it’s the last one in the series. 🙁  I’m running a contest for Daycares, Preschools and Teachers, check it out below.  Exciting news, I am  in the studio working on my 3rd solo CD, looking at releasing in May or June.  I’ll be doing a few events around Saskatoon in March, and already booking summer library tours!  I have some info on doing Singing with Sylvia Classes in your home, so check it all out.  Stay warm my friends, put on some Sylvia Chave via Spotify/Apple Music and dance/sing up a storm and cut and colour my penguin activity sheets, at the very bottom. xoxo

All the news for the group contest.  Not for parents to enter only teachers & caregivers. 🙂 So share this with them for your  child’s group to have a chance to win.

All the information on the Fling is here.  Another fun filled day of music for everyone, don’t forget the evening show is a glow stick party and I provide the glow sticks AND the dark!AND music is wonderful for babies and parents just don’t realize that they can come with their wee littles to enjoy the music too, they love it!Tickets online Here

Singing with Sylvia ClassesI have offered classes and love doing it, but it is tough to find a time and day that works for everyone.  The best way I have found to offer these classes is for people to have them in their homes.  We choose a day and time and a set of 4 consecutive weeks that work for everyone. They find 10-12 kids to take the class.  It’s a great time for moms to get together and enjoy music with their kids and then a visit afterwards.  You need a room we can all sit in, doesn’t have to be that big. Living rooms, rec rooms all work.  If you are interested shoot me an email and I’ll give you all the details. frodo@sasktel.net.


Penguins!My sister Anna Ashcroft is a marvel and there is nothing we liked better than paper dolls when we were little.  So she made one up  for Penguins!  Lots of colouring and cutting to keep your kids busy in this cold weather. Mounting the doll on a piece of cardboard will help make it a little stronger if you like.  Have fun!

Singing with Sylvia Classes, Saskatoon, November 2019

Check, it out!  Classes in the mornings.  These are always a lot of fun for the whole crew.

Orange Section, Dec. 2018

WOW!  The holiday season is upon us. I am busy singing away, at daycares and events around Saskatoon, feeling very festive. 🙂 The newsletter has information on the Holiday Hoopla, which is happening this week!  It also has information on the Singing with Sylvia Classes that I am offering in January 2019.  One in the afternoon @ Luther Terrace and a morning one at CJ’s Climb & Play in Warman.  I haven’t offered these in a while, so here’s your chance to get you and your child(ren) in on the fun.  Also I have a few dates for you to mark on your calendar, for events in Saskatoon and Alberta in January.  This newsletter also carries with it all the joy and love I can send to you and the ones you love for a fantabulous holiday season. xoxox


The Holiday Hoopla is a joyous, festive, celebration with original music, except for one, lol.  I hope that you’ll come out and join us for what has become a holiday tradition for many.  Thursday night’s concert is a glow stick  party and I supply all the glow sticks, it is so much fun to sing in the dark, you can’t imagine!  On another note, I just want to mention that so many grandparents are bringing their littles out to the shows, it is a way to spend special time with them and make really great memories, so keep that in mind if your parents are close by and might like to try this.  Also, people are always surprised when they bring their babies out for the show.  They enjoy it so much, so bring ’em out!

Singing with Sylvia Classes are such a hoot!  It’s a wonderful time for family to sing together with me.  The child registered of course is the one I’m interacting with, but hey the parents and younger siblings are right there too, learning the songs and the actions.  It’s a great way to get a little more time with me and my music.  Hoping to offer this a little more regularly, but as my schedule gets busier, it has been tough, so don’t miss this opportunity.

email me to register for either classes frodo@sasktel.net


A second class I’m offering is in partnership with CJ’s Climb and Play and this also includes entry for your registered child, into the playground too.  For other children you have that aren’t registered, regular entry fees to CJ’s will apply.


Here’s a Holiday Video for you,

Let’s String Up the Christmas Tree

And a colouring sheet to share with your little ones & big ones too, because we know that colouring is very calming and as we enter these stressful days, we could all use some help.

Hope this finds everyone enjoying this lovely weather.  I have been busy weeding and planting.  It is one of my happy places, in the garden.  I hope to connect with you in song somewhere over the next few months, I’ve given a list of events where we might do that.

BIG NEWS…..I’m in the planning stages of recording a new CD, hopefully in the studio over the summer and releasing in the fall, stay tuned!


Rock the Cradle is coming up soon on May 31st, it’s a FREE mini Music Session for parents with 0-24 months littles.  This is a one on one session, which means there is one child per adult.  Remember,  Grandma or Grandpa can come out with their little pumpkin too.  Each participant will receive a FREE CD too, so spread the word to all the families with  children  these ages.   email Sylvia to register OR for more information.

April 10th – 11th School Concert Special

(Prairie Spirit Schools)

I try really hard to make my music affordable for schools, and the Winter Special is a great opportunity to have me at your school at a great price. The concerts are 45 minutes in length and I bring my own sound system. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact me via phone or email. Hope to See you Soon Baboon!

Sylvia’s School Concert Showscan go as high as grade 6, (but I leave that decision up to the school staff). I often recommend care partners for the school concert. Matching the two older grades, with the two younger grades. They can model fun behaviour and really enjoy the show with their young friends, instead of worrying about their ‘cool’ factor.
