If you’ve got a newborn who loves to dance and wiggle to music, or a kiddo who belts out radio tunes at the top of their lungs, or pretends everything thing they pick up is some sort of imaginary musical instrument, registering for the VSO School of Music Early Years Classes this fall is a no-brainer.
The VSO School of Music is a state-of-the-art community music school in the heart of downtown Vancouver that teaches the joy of learning, playing and performing music, for all ages and stages. The VSO’s Early Years classes are designed to give a ‘brain boost’ to developing young minds with all the proven benefits that come from learning music at an early age. Starting with Parent and Baby Musical Yoga Classes for new parents and newborns, VSO School classes continue through to group Music and Movement classes using the popular Colourstrings approach. Children are then guided through Pathway small group lessons that bring the joy of playing an instrument into your child’s life, with choices of piano, violin, cello, guitar, percussion or singing a choir. Children aged 5-7 can also attend the Sounds of the Symphony classes, introducing them to the sonic world of the symphony orchestra. Kids who progress to a performing ensemble at the school can even perform on the Orpheum Theatre stage!
Kiddos from toddlers to age 6 and their parents are invited to a FREE Public Instrument Petting Zoo at the school on Sunday, September 10th at 2 pm to enjoy a hands-on experience with instruments and to learn more about the school. Kids who are already enrolled have additional opportunities to participate in instrument Petting Zoos throughout the school year.
And how cool is this — The VSO School enjoys a unique relationship with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, which allows students and their families to gain unforgettable musical experiences, including complimentary tickets to selected VSO concerts and a kids-go-free ticket offer.
With over 50 early years music courses scheduled this fall, you are bound to find the perfect class to fit your needs and your schedule. Register your little one today online, in person, or by phone: 604-915-9300. Classes start in early September!
