Welcome to the Our Team page. You will find info on the members of Captain Bandanna below.

Sharon has been a qualified pre-school teacher since 1999. After teaching at various pre-schools in the eastern suburbs she spent 2 years living in Indonesia volunteering in orphanages and spent some of her time in International schools, a wonderful learning curve and definite eye opener.

Sharon has many years of experience working closely with children with special needs. She is a qualified Austswim teacher and teaching children to swim is a passion her and her sister both share. Through her interest and knowledge of children Sharon began writing children’s stories and songs believing there was a large gap in the industry for quality, fun & educational music and entertainment for children.

Seeing the success and exciting response to her stories and music from the children at the pre-schools, she was inundated with requests to perform at birthday parties and various children’s shows.

As the public interest quickly grew she decided to combine with her sister Michelle to launch their very own children’s entertainment business, ‘Captain Bandanna & Co’and Cool 4 Kids.

Captain Bandanna & Co pride themselves on writing great songs for children and we are extremely excited that Sharon (Captain Bandanna) has taken out first prize in the children’s category at the 2007 National Australian Songwriting Contest for ‘Animal Mix’, a song which she co-wrote prior to becoming Captain Bandanna & Co. http://www.asai.org.au/top102#Children

After a long career in corporate travel Michelle decided to combine her childhood swimming skills with her love for children and after becoming a qualified Austswim instructor opened & ran her own successful swim school.  She had so much fun with the children in and out of the water, & saw the positive reaction to particular games, songs, instruction and exercise that she was looking for another way to use all of this knowledge & skill. 

After having her own 2 children she jumped at the opportunity to give the children’s entertainment industry a go & shares the passion to entertain and educate children in a fun and positive way.
Michelle has always been interested in song writing and the ease of combining with her sister Sharon to write unique funky songs has been a fun focus for the past couple of years and she can’t wait to get into the studio to start recording their second CD.
