Online Classes 

Teacher Monica LIVE on Facebook!  

Teacher Monica will be running two Facebook LIVE classes.  Set up a monthly subscription for the most flexibility – watch the replay anytime.  Teacher Monica will greet your child at the beginning and end of each class even it you are not on with her LIVE.   

Tuesdays – We explore each topic for 3 weeks then move on to the next topic. Through passive learning over a 21 day period the songs sink into our subconscious and we learn the material without work or trying. This is the same for adults and little children. Come have fun and learn something new!

Fridays – We explore a different topic each week including one of our 24 country of origin or genre lesson plans or a special classes where we do a deep dive into an artist or topic like The Beatles or Improvising. Come have fun and learn something new!

Pay as you go is always an option.  Suggested $10 per Facebook LIVE class. Musical Get Together’s go live off the  Jump Into Music’s Facebook page. Like the page, choose all notifications and join us LIVE! 

If you are registered in any of our in-person classes, enjoy an add-on to be included in our Facebook LIVE Get Togethers.  Subscription details here

 Wednesdays are outdoor classes for now but will be moving to a Zoom Class for Nov and Dec.  More details below. 

Check out all past Facebook LIVE Get Togethers!  There are over 40 episodes to choose from to watch on replay. 

 

In-person 

We are back Mondays at Hasting and Thursdays at Coal Harbour Community Centres starting Sept 14th and 18th!  These classes will be held outside if the weather is good. 

 

We have added three Outdoor Park Classes Wednesdays Starting Sept 16th at 9:30am, 11am and 1pm.  Registration details below in the drop down menu. 

 

Class Safety Guidelines

To help us get back to Getting Together in-person we will follow these Class Safety Guidelines:

What to bring from home:  

  • maracas – homemade or any kind of shakers, one for each hand = 4
  • jam instruments for you and your child, we lead by example and the joy of copying can create incredible moments together.
  • Two peek-a-boo scarves – see through ones are the best! Different patterns are wonderful so we can point out the interesting shapes and colours on each person’s scarf.  Every moment is a learning opportunity. Square scarves are preferred but bring whatever you have.
  • Yoga mats and/or a blanket to sit on – one blanket per family so we can all stay compact in our bubbles. A designated spot will be marked for each family before class. 

Redirection:

  • If children wander off, quickly redirect them back to your blanket. Scoop them up in your arms, dance on your blanket or walk away from the circle at any time. Please follow your child if they leave your blanket and sing and dance with them from a distance if needed. We will carry on without notice. You can rejoin the circle anytime.

Social Distance Measures:

  • We will keep a safe 6 foot distance between each family.
  • Wearing a mask is a great idea for adult participants. Since we are inside, this will be favourable but this is your choice. We will be maintaining the needed distance so you can be mask free inside your space. Note: The teacher will not be wearing a mask while teaching in order to connect with the children. They will maintain a safe distance away from all participants throughout the class. Please resist the urge to come into each other’s space at the start of the class. Some families may be in bubbles together.  If so we will communicate this at the start of class.
  • Please do not huddle around the teacher or visit within the 6 foot distance at the start or end of the class.
  • Wild animal paw print stamps will be available with sanitizer self-serve at the door on your way out.

Best practices for a safe class experience:

  • Do not walk into the 6 foot perimeter of another family.
  • Wear your mask if you would feel safer wearing it. Masks are welcome.
  • Do not let children interact with other children without the express permission of the other family. At the start of class we will communicate regarding those present who have established shared boundaries.
  • Do not share your instruments with other participants.
  • Keep your area contained. Do not leave items lying around that other participant children may try to pick up (phones, water bottles, toys etc)

Don’t be shy about singing and dancing. Let share our joy through music – we’re in this together! : )

 

Community Centre Classes

  • Let’s sing, dance, and smile, together a safe distance apart!  Weather permitting we may be able to be outside.
