Presenting the internationally renowned, research-based music and movement program Music Together, Over the Moon invites parents and infant-to-kindergarten-aged children to sing, dance, listen, and explore musical instruments in a variety of fun-filled classes. During weekly 45-minute Music Together sessions, adult caregivers accompany budding music muses, delving into the power of music and creativity through a variety of experiential, non-performance-based exercises. The mixed-age classes focus on natural family-filled learning as younger children watch and imitate older kids and learn a 25-song course catalog. Pint-sized sound-seekers sing, practice rhythmic rhymes, and play instruments free from classroom formalities and engage in family-building creativity.
Geoffrey Barbey has always viewed the world through a painter's eye. But after graduating from several esteemed art institutes during the 1970s, he came to a disheartening realization: traditional painting had fallen by the wayside. So, following a yearlong painting adventure throughout Europe and North Africa, Geoffrey settled into a career in advertising and commercial film production. He remained there for 25 years.
Eventually, all that time spent helping other creative people pursue their goals led Geoffrey back to the canvas. He took classes and began building a portfolio to get the word out. Today, that portfolio––filled with colorful still-life pieces––includes works that have been featured in private collections and exhibitions. Geoffrey shares his painting experience during intimate classes at his Dobbs Ferry studio. There, students create their own masterpieces while learning about fundamental topics including color theory and composition.
