At JOJY Music for Children we offer unique curriculum-based music programs designed to enhance your child’s enjoyment of music and development of musical skills while nurturing their self-esteem and confidence. Our program combines various concepts based upon the pedagogical approaches of Carl Orff and Zoltán Kodály.
JOJY founders, Jennifer and Justin, are former Capilano Community Music School instructors who formed their unique teaching style under the tutelage of Nadine Bohna, founder of the original Kodaly Orff Music for Children program at Capilano University. They are proudly carrying on her 35 year legacy of methodology whilst bringing fresh ideas and energy to their programming.
Our goal is to nurture a love of music within all of our students. The narrow age ranges in our program allow us to tailor developmentally appropriate curriculum to each class; this in turn allows us to effectively teach core music fundamentals within a fun-filled and joyful learning environment.
We are offering classes at three locations on the North Shore (click on location for directions/map): St. Catherine’s Church in Edgemont Village, Mount Seymour United Church in Parkgate, and West Van Community Centre in Dundarave (for registration for our programs at WVCC, please click here).
