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!!!

Dani is privileged to have grown up in a community that has a happening arts scene and an abundance artistic mentors. Dani has always loved music and started singing with the Theatre Orangeville Youth singers at age seven. This passion for music was fostered by many teachers and coaches as Dani continued to learn Piano under the tutelage of Joy Bell, study trombone at Robert F. Hall C.S.S., compete at Sweet Adelines International with The Orangeville Chorus as well in her own quartet, Lost in Harmony, and study and perform with Mark DuBois.

Working in the box office at Theatre Orangeville during her high school years and as a vocal coach for the Theatre Orangeville Young Company in the summers of 2011-2013 exposed Dani not only to the incredibly talented artistic role models and leaders our unique community possesses, but also her desire to land amongst these essential ranks one day, and to really impact the lives of young people through music.

When Dani graduated high school her interests took a turn away from performing and towards education and child development, minoring in psychology at The University of Western Ontario and graduating in Spring 2017 with an Honours Specialization in English Language and Literature. Throughout university Dani was employed working as a nanny and personal support worker in a school setting with children at various levels of ability, where through encounters with music therapists she uncovered again the magic of music.

Throughout this journey Dani has worked as a princess at The Land of the Glass Slipper hosting children's birthday parties. In 2014, Dani and her mother Queen Laura purchased the company and converted the lower level of their home into a Palace. Dani is already living the perfect fairytale spending her weekends immersed in her two favourite things: children and music.
