* something to shake * something to tap * something to wave * something to cuddle
You can find these things at home, or if you prefer, we have mini music packs available for $15 that include a scarf; wooden claves; an egg shaker; a stuffed friend and a VSOSoM drawstring tote. Purchase your pack online, and it will be ready for you to pick up from the VSO School’s ground floor front desk.

Keep your little one busy and engaged, while building the fundamentals of music making and early literacy! In each class, tailored to age groups, children will sing, move, hear instruments and be introduced to the world of music through engaging activities. The VSOSoM approach introduces musical concepts, including pitch, rhythm, pulse, dynamics and musical form in fun, interactive classes. Suitable for children and their grownups with or without prior music class experience.
Our online classes are offered in 6-week blocks: sign up for Part I (Mar 31-May 7); Part II (May 12-Jun 18); or enroll in both blocks to reserve your class spot for the entire spring term!

In addition to our age-specific classes, we are thrilled to offer a multi-age online class this term! These engaging 45 minute sessions will introduce children to a variety of instruments and foster their own musical development with rhythm and pitch creation. With a wider variety in ages, this class will additionally focus on leadership skills and encourage social interaction in an online environment.
Additional multi-age classes will be offered for a 6 week session running May 12 – June 18:
VSOSoM virtual classes use Zoom with strict security settings rather than facebook live or other streaming methods, and online class sizes are limited to 12, so participants can see and interact with each other as well as the teacher, and be included by name, increasing our sense of connection while staying at home.
