Registration for Oct – Dec 6-week session is open now!
This is an online music program, taught using Zoom
|Make sure children have these items ready for use in the classes: |
* 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.
NEW FOR 2021-22: Each term has been divided into two 6-week sessions, giving you more flexibility. Choose whether to participate in the first 6 weeks; last 6 weeks; or sign up for both to secure your spot for the whole term!
Classes take place on Thursdays, Sep 16 – Oct 21 AND/OR Oct 28 – Dec 9
|Babies||from 3mnths – crawling, with parent / care giver||12:30-1:15pm|
|Toddlers||born 2019 or 2020, walking confidently, with parent/care giver|
|Preschoolers||born in 2017 or 2018|
|Kindergarten-Grade 1||born in 2015 or 2016|
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.
