Storyfair Productions is committed to producing quality educational children’s programming and products.  Our goal is to make a lasting impression on young minds so they feel valued and inspired to create on their own. 

Established in 2000, Storyfair Productions began with the release of the best selling CD, rocky mountain fairy tales and the companion storybook, a Canmore fairy tale.  A narrated and animated DVD of the story Paradise Valley soon followed.  Currently on tour is Winter Solstice, an original 45-minute show for full orchestra.

In addition to performing in numerous public venues and schools, Storyfair Productions also develops workshops for teachers and students to use in conjunction with their own curriculums.  By using music to reach the whole child, these workshops help them understand difficult concepts and become more connected within their communities.

It is not technique that is the essence of art, but the soul.  As soon as the soul can communicate freely, without obstacles, a complete musical effect is created.

Children who feel seen, loved and honoured are far more able to become loving parents and productive citizens later on.
