Dr. Feierabend is a national leader in the field of early childhood education and currently serves as a professor of the music education division at The Hartt School of the University of Hartford in Connecticut. Allyssa Norton is a graduate of the University of Hartford Art School and currently lives in Somers, Connecticut. She is devoted to her art; love and care are given to each illustration.
