About Shana Banana
What happens when you get a Master’s degree in Oceanography? You become a national children’s entertainer, of course! After working and teaching (and playing lots of music) on a marine research vessel, Shana Smith decided to take a leap of faith and formalize her creative talents and training in singing and songwriting. Shana discovered and developed her incredible joy of writing songs for children first as a touring folk musician when children were in the audience, and then on the grounds of her mother’s preschool. Over the years, she became nationally known as “Shana Banana®” and earned a reputation as one of today’s top children’s entertainers, with a voice that still delves into blues, jazz, and folk as well. Inspired by her mother’s extensive early childhood background, her own academic background in the sciences and her performances at schools and teacher education workshops, Shana also became an avid producer of curricula and study guides, and continues to hone her interests in and passion for music and education. She has also professionally trained, taught and choreographed in acting, music, and dance, respectively.
