In 1976, busy California mother Joan Barnes wanted nothing more than to find a play place where she and her kids could enjoy age-appropriate, educational activities. Finding none, she developed her own innovative play environment within a developmental-based program structure now known as Gymboree Play & Music. Today, kids tumble and learn in more than 650 locations in 33 countries around the world, engaging in open play and classes designed to build cognitive and motor skills. As parents participate in their children's development, their kids learn to paint, play music, and interact socially outside of their preschool knitting circles.
Students play the music they want to at North Shore Music Institute, where a staff of working musicians lead private and group lessons on instruments including guitar, keyboards, bass, ukelele, and buckets. The school's band program helps connect students of similar age, skill, and musical preferences in an eight-week program where they learn two assigned songs and two songs of their choice. Designed for garage bands with airport-size ambitions, the program guides groups through every step of the process, from instrument tuning to autotuning.
Although Christopher Paul is a professional photographer, he doesn’t like having his picture taken. Since he knows what it’s like to feel a little uncomfortable on the other side of the lens, he spends his time crafting shoots that are as engaging and easy-going as possible for his subjects, whether he’s capturing family portraits, engagement photos, or keepsake wedding stills. Rather than working out of a studio, for example, he always shoots at a location of the subject’s choosing. He prefers shooting outdoors. People not only tend to relax outside, but natural light is far more flattering than that of a flashbulb. He also shows subjects proofs during as they pose, so they aren’t surprised by their final shots.
