Lesley Barovick is a life-long music maker raised in a musical family. When her young family moved from Brooklyn to Larchmont in 2003, she found a lack of engaging, live music programs in her new neighborhood. So Groove was born. Groove Family Music has twice received Westchester Magazine's Best of Westchester Award for Best Kids' Class, as well as countless accolades from parenting publications and real live parents, too! Lesley earned a BMA in voice performance from the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre and Dance, where she earned a BMA in voice performance and an MFA in Arts Management from Brooklyn College. Lesley has proudly served as Director of Development for a Jazz at Lincoln Center (with Wynton Marsalis), Playwrights Horizons and Celebrate Brooklyn. Under the auspices of Lesley Sings, LLC, Lesley is happy to be a music specialist at The Little School in Scarsdale, NY and the the LM/STEM Alliance Co-Op Camp, a curriculum builder at the Brooklyn Music Factory and an active member the Music for Kiddos community of music educators & therapists. Lesley is also honored to be a sacred song leader for Sanctuary NY. She is the proud mama of two 20-somethings who make music. Fun Fact: Lesley sang with Peter, Paul and Mary on The Phil Donahue Show in 1989.
