Once upon a time in the land of nursery schools, there lived three wonderfully talented music educators. Sue Epstein, Judy Farber, and Ditza Zakay were not only educators, they were musicians, songwriters, performers, and recording artists. Things were hunky-dory. One beautiful spring day, as fate would have it, something magical occurred. They found each other! “Let’s combine our talents”, they said. And Poof! The Shirettes were born! Who knew?
And since then, they have lived happily ever after, making beautiful music together.
