Since 2003 Tamara Nolte has been an active member and a leader at Bubbles Academy. Through her journey of teaching classes, and eventually becoming the Director, she knows a thing or two about children's music. What's her philosophy that helps her create the fun and upbeat atmosphere we all know and love at Bubbles Academy? Finding a perfect balance of adult-friendly kid's music, and kid-friendly adult music. Her eclectic musical tastes lean towards underground artists, cool beats and fun lyrics that can be enjoyed by all.

BECCA DREW EMMERICH
Author of "Bubble BookWorm"
Miss Becca loves to read! She is the daughter of a librarian/artist and an engineer/volunteer fireman...who says you have to be just one thing when you grow up? Miss Becca takes after her parents, she is a teacher/actor/wanna-be-dancer/bicyclist/cardboard boat builder/playground gymnast and most of all... a book lover! Her absolute favorite books are When A Monster is Born by Sean Taylor and the classic (she has it memorized) Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. Before coming to Bubbles Academy, she was an actor and teaching artist at Lexington Children's Theatre in Kentucky where she brought stories to life on stage. She is super excited to be doing that again in her weekly Story Time, Thursdays at 3:00 as part of our Open Play Program.
