“Miss Christy” Burich has been singing, dancing, teaching and entertaining young children and their families since 1999. She is Director of Wee Heart Music, Inc. which offers Music Together® classes for children 0 – 7 years old as well as entertainment for children’s birthday parties, family concerts and performances for preschools and libraries in Illinois.
Miss Christy is passionate about cultivating and preserving children’s natural enthusiasm for life through active music-making. She also aspires to encourage adults to let their inner child out to play now and again! She LOVES Halloween and always looks forward to dressing up for her classes either as Snow White, Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, Minnie Mouse and then even some not so easily recognizable characters like the Egg Shaker of Happiness! Over the years, she's enjoyed making a party out of her Halloween classes by sharing stories, songs and jokes and each year someone always asks, "Why don't you make a Halloween CD?!" So, after 12 years, she finally listened and took the leap of faith, achieving her dream of recording an album for kids and families!
This album is a fun, spine-tickling compilation of some not-so-spooky, kid-friendly songs, stories, chants and jokes that she's used over the years during her Halloween classes and soon became family favorites. Some of the songs included are Halloween is Fun (Shortn'in Bread), On Halloween (Down By the Bay), Going Trick or Treat (Three Blind Mice),When the Ghosts Come Out on Halloween(Johnny Comes Marching Home), The Hookey Spookey (The Hokey Pokey), Jack-O-Lantern (My Clementine) and plenty more including songs featuring the voices of children from our very first Big Kids™ class! The songs are traditional with new lyrics and adapted by very talented musicians Kathy Sbarboro, John Goodman and Kim-Char Meredith.
What parents say:
“Our girls have memorized your Halloween CD from beginning to end and even put on a show for their grandparents when they came to visit! They acted every song out and told every joke too! It was very impressive!”
"I'm so glad we decided to buy your CDs! I just like the variations of songs, and how my son loves them too. We listen and play along with them ALL the time. I can see how he's grown musically too. It's amazing how quickly they learn!"
“Miss Christy puts her heart and soul into entertaining children as well as their parents with a lively sing-a-long!”
“I’m not sure how she does it, but she keeps everyone of all ages captivated and engaged the whole time!”

She is so enthusiastic, warm, funny, and passionate, and it comes across so clearly in her music, classes and parties. Kids and parents love her. She has brought so much happiness to everyone throughout the years.”
