Hello, Hello!               

I'm so glad you stopped in. Just as the children I've been privileged to entertain over the years are growing up, so is this site. For now, I've included all the essentials - booking and contact info, how to purchase a cd, and a bit of history - but there's so much more to come. Thanks much...and enjoy!

It's All About the Kids

To say that I enjoy my work would be, well, not enough. I've been blessed with the gift of connecting with young children and have used that gift to encourage, enlighten and help them develop into confident and capable young people. (Hmm...some are not so young anymore. I've been doing this for a long time!) 

The Experience Stuff

It was way back on my 14th birthday, sometime during the 20th century, that my folks gave me my first guitar. "Best investment we ever made," says my mom. I'd have to agree with her. Since teaching myself to play a few simple chords I've performed at birthday parties,  child cares, festivals, fairs, elementary schools, libraries, television, radio... wherever young children and families are gathered. I've also conducted workshops and performed for many state, county, and local child care associations.



Tunes to Go

The "Let Me Be a Kid" cd is almost, but not quite, like experiencing a live Mr. Skip show. I recorded it with the "I'm a Kid Band", happy, frolicking, professional musicians whom I'm lucky enough to call my friends. Six of the tunes were composed by yours truly, with the rest coming from a variety of sources. All are age-appropriate for the six and under crowd. Now available via email as MP3 files!


Getting in Touch

As I said, this site is always evolving, check back often! 

I may be reached at: (302) 377-4555 or via e-mail mrskip@mrskip.com. I thank you very much for your interest. Love to hear from you! Mr. Skip
