Lisa "Dee" Perusse
Co-founder, Director

Dee's pedigree includes an undergraduate degree in music and a master's degree in choral direction, and her years in touring bands Throwback and Erik Lind & The Orchard made her a serious badass. These days, Dee is a professional yoga teacher and manager of Moksha Yoga's NDG and St-Laurent branches.

Jake Shenker
Co-founder, Assistant director, Guitar

Jake plays guitar and cracks jokes, and sometimes has to direct the PopTones when Dee is sick. He is most proud of his zany funk/jam band The Fuzzy Logic and his recent solo releases. He is also a serious dude with a masters degree in neuroscience, and is currently pursuing his PhD in clinical psychology.
