Director, M.A. Community Music, Certification Level II

Sasha took Music Together® classes with both her children and was thrilled to find a music program which embraced such a rich variety of musical elements. As a child Sasha enjoyed making music from a very young age and since has played in all sizes of musical ensembles, from duets to symphony orchestras.
Sasha took the Music Together teacher training in 2004. She completed additional training in 2007 and became a Certified Instructor Level I. In 2013 she was awarded Certification Level II by the Music Together Center for Music and Young Children for outstanding achievement.
Sasha recently graduated with an M.A. in Community Music and leads The Circle of Music, an intergenerational choir for people living with dementia. From her personal and teaching experience, she believes that the Music Together program gives us a rich musical exposure and an enjoyable way to bring music into your home and the lives of children.

Instructor, B.A. Music Education

After graduating as a Music Education major at Western University in London, Pam spent a number of years teaching music privately, filling her leisure time with choral singing and piano accompaniment, largely in the Chicago area. In the past 4 years since returning to Canada, she has had opportunity to consider reshaping and broadening her musical experience with children in a more interactive way. Having completed the Music Together teacher training in Silver Spring, Maryland in 2014, and subsequently apprenticing with Director Sasha Judelson, she eagerly anticipates spreading the joy music brings into the life of many children!

Instructor

Ana Lorena studied theatre and worked as actor, production assistant and director in Mexico City. Having completed a master’s degree in Perpignan, France and doctorate at Université Laval in Quebec City, Ana Lorena began working in theatre in Toronto in 2009.
She has enjoyed making music since an early age, and finds that singing plays a vital role in the daily task of taking care of her two small children. She encountered the Music Together program as a parent in 2014 and immediately fell in love. The variety of rhythms, tonalities and lyrics of the collections fascinated her and enabled her to foster her son’s musical development.
She did her teacher training in 2015 and later apprenticed with Director Sasha Judelson in Guelph. From the training, and her own experience, she can confidently guarantee that you’ll be taking home the opportunity to create a music-rich environment in which to develop your children’s innate musical ability. Ana Lorena still enjoys the program as a parent of a pre-schooler and a 6-month-old baby and can’t wait to share the joy of making music together with more families in the coming sessions.
