Keep your little one busy and engaged, while building the fundamentals of music making and early literacy! These online music classes are tailored to specific age groups, and available to you in either a 5-pack of daily classes, or a 2-pack of classes every other day.

VSOSoM virtual classes use Zoom rather than facebook live or other streaming methods, and online class sizes are limited to 12 just like an in-person group, 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.
