About Hey Sunshine Productions
Leslie Godfrey, founder
Welcome to Hey Sunshine Productions!
As the founder of this company, I think it's important to stay true to who I am. I've been involved in music since I was a toddler, have been a small business owner for over a decade, and started teaching in the fitness industry a few years ago. Hey Sunshine is my way of combining several facets of my life, and I look forward to sharing those with you!
I have both a bachelor's and master's degree in music (oboe performance, to be exact). I've been teaching private oboe and piano lessons for nearly 15 years now, and am also an active freelance oboist in the tri-state area. In addition, you can often find me around Woodbridge township, providing cocktail piano music for local events and gallery openings. In 2011, I co-founded Professional Music Academy, which quickly grew to be one of the largest music schools in the area; in 2016, I made the difficult decision to scale smaller and branch off into my own private studio. Happy Bamboo Music Studio, which is also in Woodbridge, has brought me so much joy. My students currently range in age from 4 to 75, and come from all walks of life. Happy Bamboo will always be a part of my life, and is just coming under the larger Hey Sunshine umbrella (oh, the irony).
On the fitness side of things, I got involved in 2017, when I decided to take a POUND certification training. If you've never been to a POUND class, you should definitely check one out! It combines squats and lunges with weighted drumsticks, and it's a great cardio blast (and a ton of fun). I started working for a wonderful fitness studio in Woodbridge, and eventually started teaching barre and spin classes there as well. In a surprising turn of events, I realized that I love coming up with challenging barre tracks, and enjoy the added adventure of finding great songs to use. I'd been kicking around the idea of doing an online barre video subscription series for a while, so when an opportunity presented itself, I decided to go for it!
I hope that you enjoy your experience with Hey Sunshine. This corporation was initially formed with the intent of being a "one-stop shop" for all of your musical needs; you can book musicians for events and special occasions and sign up for private music lessons. And now since I've expanded to offer fitness classes, you can also hang out with me at the barre!
Hey Sunshine Productions is committed to providing its clients with clear communication, professionalism, creativity, and musicality. Don't let things like event planning, searching for a music teacher, or getting stuck in a fitness rut be a dark spot in your life - instead, treat yourself to a little sunshine!
