Outdoor Classes back by popular demand!

Last year we took a risk and pivoted several of our classes outside.  This was so much fun we will be continuing this fall with two days a week in local parks.  Remarkably we only needed to move to Zoom due to heavy rain a few times all year!  Our downtown 2nd beach location was able to operate all year round and didn’t move to zoom at all. It was wonderful to be outside making music!  Let’s do it again.  

Class Schedule

Note some classes have shifted which days of the week they are offered on.  All Classes in Vancouver are offered by Teacher Monica and all Vancouver Island classes are offered by Lady O.

Class Safety Guidelines

BC Reopening Phase 4 Announcement is scheduled for Sept 4th. We will update our in person safety plan after this date.  All of our safety is paramount at Jump Into Music.  Thank you for your flexibility throughout these unprecedented times. 

 

What to bring from home:

Check out this YouTube Video describing everything you need and where to get it! 

  • 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.
