Our Teachers

All of our teachers are passionate about music and the development of children.

They create a fun, informal, social setting that spurs engagement and supports each child's musical development.

Pamela is the proud owner and director of Music Together of Orangeville and has had the pleasure of teaching the program since 2014. Before entering the parenting world, Pamela was a professional Musical Theatre Performer, working with Stage West (Vagina Monologues), Drayton Entertainment (Anne of Green Gables, My Fair Lady) , Theatre Orangeville (A Christmas Carol), Moonpath Productions (Totally Scrooged), TIFT (Emily), ACT Productions (I Love You You're Perfect Now Change, Tick Tick Boom), Oh Canada Eh? (Rocky Horror) and many others.  Pamela was a part of the CBC mini series 'How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria' and finished in the top 40 finalists for the role of Maria VonTrapp in the Mirvish Production of The Sound of Music.  Pamela sang with Donny Osmond in 1997 in Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and performed for the Queen of England in 2002.  You can hear Pamela as the voice of Miss Harbor on the Children's TV series 'Paws and Tales' and see her on the front of the 'EZ Up Closet Organizer' at Canadian Tire.  

After getting married and having TWO baby girls, Pamela has settled down considerably and prefers the domestic home life.  As a result, you can often find her behind the scenes mentoring young artists.  Pamela has directed the Theatre Orangeville Young Company for the last 5 summers, which has allowed her to produce some of her very favourite shows including: Seussical, Into The Woods, The Sound of Music, Beauty and the Beast, and Mary Poppins.  And has been teaching Voice and Piano lessons since 2008.  

Pamela is relatively new to the Early Childhood Education side of music, and so, Music Together® has opened up an entirely new purpose and enjoyment of music.  It is an incredible experience to see the way music changes and affects these children in all aspects of their little lives.  Come and play with us and you'll see what we mean!!!

An active supporter of community music, Noni has facilitated various music summer camps and workshops over the past few years in and throughout the GTA. Since moving to Shelburne in 2015, Noni has had the opportunity to collaborate with artists and groups that focus on highlighting the arts in the community and youth engagement in the arts.
More than just a hobby, Community theatre productions have become a steady gig and love for Noni. She has been the Musical Director for LP Stage Productions shows: The Lion King Jr, That's Entertainment Jr, A Christmas Story, Alice in Wonderland Jr, Singin' In The Rain Jr and Forever Plaid.
Noni has also been fortunate to partner with Streams Community Hub (an organization passionate about youth, arts and the community) as a facilitator for their Summer Arts Camp.

Robyn has been involved with the arts from a young age, singing in children’s groups and performing several community theatre productions during high school and afterwards. She has also been working with children of all ages for many years in many different capacities. After deciding that education was her calling in life, she proudly teaches in the public school system and has spent most of her career focusing on the primary grades. Currently, she is teaching in the Full Day Kindergarten program and loving every second of being covered in paint and glue, and watching the magic of learning unfold. Robyn participated in the Music Together program with her daughter, and was excited to find a place where childhood education and music meet up and work together so seamlessly. She is thrilled to be trained by the Music Together wizards, and excited to connect her passion for teaching and learning in the early years, along with her love for singing, dancing, and PARACHUTES!.
