One of the best ways to know if Jump Into Music is for you, other than attending a free class, is to hear what other parents and caregivers say after participating.


Reviews from Parents and Caregivers

“Monica is such a gift to the community! For years I have attended her music classes with both of my daughters ages four and one years old. We just love her! Her classes are interesting for adults and also fun and accessible to young children of all ages. I appreciate that her classes are always hands-on and multifaceted with song, dance, storytelling, and musical instruments. Monica is extremely talented and has a wonderful way of connecting with each child and allowing them to experience her classes in their own way in a safe and loving environment. This is the perfect... Read More
“I just wanted to express my how much we love the class Lisa teaches at Killarney on Saturdays. My daughter Lucy comes home and sings the songs, and we do dance parties with your Spotify playlists. I used to design children’s programs for the VSB, and I have a background in recreation leadership. Plus over 20 years of working with kids. Your program is of exceptional quality. While the design of the program is outstanding, it really is the instructor who takes it to the next level. Lisa says the same spiel each class with the same, unwavering kindness. Her... Read More
“This is the most interesting, energizing, fun class we’ve found. Lucas imitates Monica now and even sings along in his own funny little way. We both love it. A million thanks for creating this class.”
“Our daughter is a little reserved in social settings and sat quietly through the first session of classes. Part way through the second session of classes she started to participate, remembering the routine of the class and looking forward to what was coming next. She remembers songs and sings them at home. Every weekend she would point to her hands and say stamps, looking forward to Wednesday when she would attend Jump Into Music and get stamps from Monica at the end of class. It is a joy to see how much August loves the experience and that she learns... Read More
“We have been attending Jump into Music on and off for the past two years and my son and I have both really enjoyed travelling the world through music. It has been amazing to see my son’s development in regards to beat, body movement and motor skills which has enhanced through music group. He knows the routine of class and is being a great role model for the younger kids now. Lady O’s enthusiasm and passion is a joy every week.”
“Great way for learning English.  We are living in Vancouver only temporary, but I’m so grateful that we joined Jump into Music as soon as we arrived from our homeland. Even though my 2-year-old son didn’t speak English at all, he had fun and enjoyed every class so much and now after only 6 weeks I see dramatic difference. Not only that he knows every song by heart, but he also learned how to interact with other kids. At the same time, I am expanding my general knowledge in music. I would recommend Monica’s Jump into Music to every parent... Read More
“Joyful Music! Monica, your exceptional love of music and pure joy you show as you share music with the children in your classes is such a pleasure to experience. Thank you, Gemma’s Grama”
“The Best Part of Our Week Monica’s class is the perfect blend of education, fun and exploration. The basic principles of music are taught to lay foundation for a musical future at any level.. and it’s tons of fun! Our daughter absolutely loves it.”
“Perfectly Balanced Class   After raising a teenager and now having a baby I was not thrilled about joining baby classes again. Miss Monica invited me to try a class. My cynical attitude quickly changed. My toddler, Damon attends 2-3 times a week now because even his nannies ask to go! It’s enjoyable for toddlers because there’s a structure and flow to the class that includes songs, bubbles, a parachute and instruments. The cool part is that the parents learn a ton along with their child. Miss Monica teaches us very interesting things about various genres of music and the history.... Read More
“We love music! This class has enriched my daughter’s life so much. We are a musical family but this class helped us structure some learning and variety in around music. Stirling wants me to sing songs from class everyday and always surprises me with how much she has retained and learned from one class to the next.”
“My daughter loves this class and Monica is fantastic! My daughter is always so excited for our jump into music class. She dances and sings along and has really developed a keen interest for music instruments. This is my second term coming to classes and I have seen my daughter become more and more confident and comfortable in group settings. She does not go to daycare so this is a wonderful class for her to interact with other kids around her age. I highly recommend for both child and parent/grandparent/nanny!”
“Amazed! EVERYTHING!!!  Monica these classes are a gift! I’ve been overwhelmed with emotions every class I’ve been to. You are gifted musically and you share your gift beautifully. As a mom and someone who spends her time in early childhood settings I am in awe of your ability to reach every participant in the class. Marlowe gets excited when we talk about our music class, the friends she’s met through the class and of course Mrs Monica. My heart flutters when I watch her joy in knowing the routine of the class and the thrill she gets from the songs,... Read More
“So Much Fun!    I can’t say enough great things about this class with Orith! My Granddaughter and I have been going to Jump into Music for approx. 1 1/2 years… She loves it and I love seeing her excitement every time we go. It’s an inexpensive and great way to spend some precious moments with the little ones. First and foremost, the talented “Lady O” is amazing! She is very patient and thorough when teaching the children about music… at first, I thought that the children wouldn’t understand or retain what was being taught, but Orith explains it clearly...

“Love, LoVe, LOVE it!!!     We are so unbelievably lucky to have such a highly skilled teacher guiding us through this stimulating music experience. The opportunity to practice fine and gross motor skills, coordination, social skills, sequencing, timing, language development, and of course, musicality, at whatever level your child may be at, and in such a fun and lively atmosphere, is awesome! I am so thrilled we have this right here in the Cowichan Valley!! I’ve watched my son be completely immersed in sound and support as he absorbs words, moves, melodies and rhythms. We’ve both learned so many new... Read More
“This was the type of activity we were looking for. As the father of two boys aged two and four, I have been taking my younger son to “Jump Into Music” for eight months and also take his older brother when his school is closed. After a free introductory class, we were convinced that this was the type of activity we were looking for. Monica’s easy-going, confident and organized leadership made the class educational and fun for both kids and adults.”
“Thank you Monica, that was wonderful! Best music teacher ever!”
“We’ve been attending Jump Into Music since Edie was 6 months old. She really enjoyed it from the very beginning. This highly interactive program has really helped Edie develop her fine motor skills. I must say the class is not just for kids but for adults too. Orith has done a very good job at choosing excellent music for the class.”
“We joined Jump in to Music over a year ago, and would highly recommend both the baby and toddler classes. This educational program provides baby with a fun, developmental exploration of sounds using the body and instruments. We look forward to class each week, where we meet old friends and new. This program is an excellent way to make new connections while introducing baby to the world around them. I would highly recommend this program to moms, dads, aunts, uncles, or nannies – this program is awesome!”
“What a great way to really Jump Into Music! We love this music class where every 3 weeks we travel around the world in music and rhythm. We actually learn new and old classics making every class exciting and enriching. A beautiful and entertaining experience for both parent and child.”
