Introduction: Hello! I’m Miss Lyza, and I’d like to tell you a little about myself and what I do here at Thumbtack...! I have been a Kindergarten through 8th Grade music teacher in Aurora Public Schools for 16 years, which gives me A LOT of experience rocking out with different ages every day! I am also a vocal major, and have been singing on stage since I was two, playing piano since I was four, and playing drum set since a little after that! On Thumbtack, I offer Music Entertainment, and sing for weddings and other events - including Singing Telegrams! Additionally, I do various DJ gigs/MC Services for weddings, school dances, and the like. I also give various types of Music Lessons, such as drum set, guitar, vocals, percussion, music theory, and composition. But, the main gigs I have been doing through Thumbtack is PARTIES! I do Costumed Character Parties for younger kiddos, and I have tons of Character options, from Disney Princesses like Cinderella, Belle, Elsa, Snow White, and Ariel, to Superheroes such as Batgirl, American Dream (female counterpart to Captain America), Black Widow, Supergirl, Elastigirl (from ‘The Incredibles’), and even male Superheroes like Spider-Man and Donatello from ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ (since I have some ‘skin’ costumes which conceal my identity!). I also have costumes for other Characters, such as Miss Lyza -Queen of the Nile (Egyptian Princess attire), Princess Poppy (from ‘Trolls’), Miss Lyza the Seafaring Siren (my Pirate alter ego!), ‘Bad Sandy’ from ‘Grease’, a Renaissance Storybook Princess, etc.! For older kids and adults, I usually create a party based off the colors or a theme or interest of the Guest of Honor! I’ve done ‘Goal-Digger’ Super Soccer Parties, Princess Adoption Parties, and Gold-themed Bat Mitzvahs! It’s all about making that person feel special, so I work very hard to create that magic! With these parties, I usually provide multiple services! You can pick and choose what works best for what you are envisioning for your party - or I can do them all!... *Character Appearance (Or attire that matches the theme!) *Vocal Performance (After setting up the sound system and microphone, I usually sing a song associated with the theme and then an original song with the Guest of Honor’s name and crowd participation!) *Personalized Crown/Themed Gift Presentation (I bring up the Guest of Honor during the songs, and present them with a themed crown/tiara/mask that I make with their name on it, and other gifts that match the theme!) *DJing (I include songs of varying genres, including crowd participation dance songs, songs associated with the theme, and age-appropriate dance songs that I have ‘super-cleaned’ to make sure they’re totally family-friendly!) *Games (I make up a few age-appropriate games that match the theme, and give out a bunch of prizes!) *Face Painting/Painting Glitter Tattoos (I bring my whole set-up, and provide Face Painting/Glitter Tattoos for Party People of all ages!) *Karaoke (I speak to the client to get as many songs set up ahead of time as possible, then add similar songs to have at least 20 tracks set up. And from there, I take requests! I am even able to help the performers ‘super-clean’ certain songs if there are a few lines that aren’t age-appropriate!) I love what I do - both with my main gig as a music teacher, as well as the parties and events I do on the evenings and weekends! I would LOVE to be able to be a part of your special occasion, and help make it an unforgettable event! Feel free to check out the pics and reviews, and reach out through my Inbox if you’d like me to come and help to honor you or your loved one(s) on your special day! Thanks! Miss Lyza

Miss Lyza was great to work with! Very responsive and provided great ideas and add ons to make our event fun. The kids loved the glitter tattoos and the music was a great mix of genres. Will definitely book her again for future events!

We hired Miss Lyza to entertain for my five year old daughter's birthday party. The theme of the party was Twilight Sparkle Dance Party. She showed up in a beautiful costume and provided sound equipment and lighting for our party. She did face painting, sang some special songs for the birthday girl, gave my daughter some special gifts, and entertained the children for several games and activities. She was engaging and stayed in character the whole time. When my daughter found out Twilight had to leave the party she broke down in tears but Twilight cheered her up with some sweet words. She was everything we had hoped for and made my daughter's 5th birthday a truly memorable experience. 100% I would hire her again!

Miss Lyza was amazing! She was "Elsa" for my 4 year old's birthday party. She showed up on time and gave a crown to the birthday girl and sang her a special song. She kept all the little girls entertained and everyone loved her.

Miss Lyza was an amazing Cinderella at my daughter's birthday. She fully engaged the young children, brought hand outs, sang beautifully, and even improvised with a few games to entertain the kids. All the parents asked me later where I found such a great character for the party. I recommend her 100%.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    For different requests, I charge amounts relevant to the event. But, for the Parties that I do: * DJ Services, * Singing, * Games * Face Painting/Glitter Tattoos I generally charge $165 for the first hour and $70 for each additional hour. I do give discounts for non-profit organizations and such!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    When a client contacts me, I reach out via messaging, phone calls, or face to face meetings (depending on the event), and we discuss what they are envisioning for their special occasion! I do offer evening hours during the week from 6PM to 8:30PM. It is of the upmost importance that the client gets exactly what they want (or more!). If it is a community event, I want everyone in attendance to have fun and take part in an experience they won’t forget! And for events that honor a particular person (or a few special people), I want to make sure that the Guest or Guests of Honor feel truly special on their big day! Everything I do is in pursuit of making them feel important and recognized! After I get a feel for what the client is looking for, I set to making that happen, so that I can provide exactly what the client wants/needs! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard people say that they had this idea for their special musical event in mind, but they never thought they could find someone to provide just what they were looking for...! And, that is why I do it! I love to hear that I was able to help them make their special occasion be just what they wanted!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    As a music education/vocal major, I have studied vocal performance, as well as child development/behavior. In addition to my 16 years teaching Kindergarten through 8th Graders in the music classroom, I have also done many different private and group lessons/ensembles - after school, through church and community organizations, dance studios, and at my own home - including Keyboard Ensembles, Vocal Ensembles/Choirs, Percussion Ensembles, and Step Teams! I have also worked with various private Pre-Schools and Summer Camps, composing, organizing, and directing their musical showcases. In addition, I have done some ‘In-House Field Trips’, performing as different Characters, and participated in various Character Meet & Greets for private companies and community organizations. I have acted and sang with a Murder Mystery Troupe, performed with a local playwright group, sang for different non-profit organizations and events, and I currently sing with a female gospel group. I have also DJed for many school dances, weddings, Bat/Bar Mitzvahs, and events in the community.
