A Musical Background: Patty’s Early Years
Inspired by music from her earliest years, Ms. Shukla wrote and recorded her first songs at age 13. She went on to major in Theater and Music at Florida State University.
After receiving her degree, Ms. Shukla made the decision to take her unique talents where they’d be needed most. She accepted a position at a Montessori school as Artistic Director in 1998 and began working with students from 1st through 4th grade, teaching them song, breathing techniques, and performance skills.
Ms. Shukla soon found she was able to help children of all ages to engage and learn through her creative efforts, and she expanded her roster include the title of voice, music and choral specialist at the elementary and high school levels.

As chief Music Educator for Shukla Music, Patty has created more than 400 educational music videos that attract 15 million viewers monthly from across the globe. She is fortunate to have her husband, Neel as a business partner who contributes, arranges and helps write every songs with her. Together they record, edit, produce and create all videos.
Her celebrated program “Musical PE for You & Me” focuses on children ages 2-8, teaching them gross motor skills, counting, colors and shapes, rhyming, sign language, and life and social skills. She performs her program live at schools and venues for groups as small as five and as large as two hundred or more participants.
Toward the Future: Music, Kids…and Real Results
Today Ms. Shukla maintains a hectic but happy schedule of events. She is a much-requested presence at schools, music venues, theaters and corporate events.
“Music was, and still is, so special to my heart,” she said in a recent news article, because “…it involves my [students] along with my values.” Explaining how impactful an educational music program can be, Ms. Shukla added, “It’s important to teach our children interactive, educational and fun songs that bring the whole family together.”
Patty resides in Florida with her husband Neel and their three children Emma, Sage and Xavier whom Patty says inspire her every day.

Patty makes learning fun with music. The students are engaged the entire time and have a great time! This field trip is a must do in my book!
We listen to your music and watch your videos EVERY DAY in our class! Thank you!
Patty Shukla’s shows are amazing, entertaining, and educational. She incorporates everything from school rules, rhyming words, opposites, shapes and counting into her music. She catches the attention of all of our students. We will continue to ask her back every year.
She is talented at combining singable tunes and lyrics with interactive motions and actions! This created one fantastic show….and proves that her CD “Play With Me, Sing Along!” is titled appropriately. My kids (and I) love the songs on “Play With Me, Sing Along!” Patty’s voice is super cheerful. It’s feel good music for kids! The songs on this CD are jubliant and fun-filled.
Patty, We LOVED having you and of course would love to have you next year! I am actually moving onto 2nd grade with me class. I plan to share and invite you back with that team as well! I will pass along your website to other teachers I know at other schools and hopefully that will help get the word out! You did a great job getting the kids so excited and energized! The kids really loved you and had a great time!” – Heritage Elementary School. I would love to do more for kids with good music like yours. Thank you.
Dear Patty, We all enjoyed your show ! The children responded to your enthusiasm and energy and it was evident that you connected with them right away. All children were singing and moving to the beat, even our shy ones.
Miss Patty Shukla paid her first professional visit to the Hobe Sound Elementary Extended Day Program in February, 2011 and she was awesome! Beautiful singing voice, age appropriate music/movements and she managed to captivate all 181 students that attended! I would highly recommend this performer for your very next show!
Patty’s presentation was awesome! It really got the children involved. It was educational in that it taught the children how to listen and follow directions, how to work together, spell and learn their right from left. It is very suitable for kindergarten through third. Our children had a blast!
Thank you for coming to LCE last Friday. My students really enjoyed the show, so did I. I will speak to both grade levels to let them know about you. I already mentioned it to a few of my friends that teach at other schools in PBC. I will also send my friends the link to your website
What a remarkable professional you are! We are calling you our ESE enter”T”rainer. You capture the attention of our students with your musical excellence, and then you teach. It gets in and it sticks, because it is music and that is magical! In my 20 plus year of Special education, I can not recall a better example of inclusion than we had Friday. It was a magical moment as you led the kindergarten students in responsive singing and their excitement engaged our students in special education at a joyfully bright new level. You are amazing! We would be SO happy if we could get the community of Immokalee to hire you. What you bring is something we are missing in education today. You bring joyful fun and high energy back to learning. Perhaps if more people see that we can capture, The tone and return it to our classroms! Thanks again, Miss Patty!
Patty provided age appropriate entertainment that was enjoyed by all of our K – 5 students. She cheerfully addressed our program’s specific needs.
Hi Patty; I wanted to share with you that the children loved your show! You are an awesome performer! We loved how you got the children involved and made them a part of the show. We can’t wait to book you to come again!
Patty was amazing her energy and personality was inspiring. The children love her music and ask for it over and over
The weekly meet-up for Moms and Kids at Downtown gained in popularity so quickly because we brought in the best in children’s entertainment. Patty immediately became a favorite and made regular appearances, and is a true performer that can engage the group, and switch things up in an instant to keep everyone involved; not an easy feat with a preschool audience! She even included educational tidbits that the children loved and the Mom’s appreciated.
I heard great positive feedback!
Just wanted to tell you that your music is fantastic! I’ve been playing your songs for my 4 and 5 year old students, half of whom have emotional/behavior disorders, and they ALL love them. I can honestly say that we’ve never experienced a single problem behavior while your songs are playing. We do your movement songs whenever it’s too cold/rainy/snowy to go outside and it’s a really fun way for them to burn off that extra energy!
A real “GEM” located in our own backyard!
My first child, now seven years old, had Laurie Berkner singing the soundtrack to her early childhood. Now my two year old is enjoying a new star on the children’s music scene: Patty Shukla. Using different styles of music like pop, reggae and Motown, Patty resonates with kids who are bored with nursery rhymes but not yet ready for top 40. Her music keeps kids moving and entertained while teaching about everything from rhyming and counting to how we can move our bodies like the animals do.
Patty’s music will definitely have your children playing and singing. It’s high energy with words about animals and activities in their world, so they’re learning without even realizing they’re being taught! The lyrics are on a level children understand and can easily sing along with. Enjoy!
I am Hannah Gilberts, I am an ESL teacher in Poland, I bumped into your songs for kids “Jump”, “Shake Shake”, “Stop”. I teach children who do not speak English in Preschool here, they are reacting positively to your songs that I got from youtube. No one led me to your songs, I got them accidentally and have great interest in them as they are so simple and catchy for ESL kids.
Thanks for a GREAT show!!!
Dear Shukla, I am an English teacher working in Turkey at a private school teaching young learners English. I love your videos and would like to add your web adress on my personal website’s resources page and share your youtube videos. Kind regards,
I happened to stumble across one of your apps on my sons iPad. I have since downloaded them all. You not only have a very beautiful voice, but both my son (who has autism) and my daughter LOVE the videos. Thank you very much for sharing your talent!
