Anthony shared, “Ever since I can remember music, books and the great outdoors have been an incredibly strong and positive force in my life! I have had the privilege of creating and providing music, crafts and story time programs for children through my employment at different local businesses before taking a leap of faith and creating my own business providing interactive programs for the community! I desire to provide these fun and engaging programs for everyone, young and old. Music and storytelling are an incredible tool that promotes the building of strong social skills like kindness, sharing, teamwork, confidence, literacy and compassion! I am so humbled by the amazing community and local businesses that have helped me achieve so much and continue to contribute to Mr. Nature’s up-rising!”
Mr. Nature’s Music Garden has achieved “Best of Tucson” for Best Children’s Entertainer 2016 & 2017, and runner up in 2018, from the Tucson Weekly, as well as being “Belled” by Ben’s Bells for his kindness work in the community!
