Welcome

Thanks for the visit! I'm glad you're here. Welcome to my site with a bit of everything I do. I am a multidisciplinary artist living in Vancouver with over 20 years of experience on stage and as a songwriter.

Since 2015, I have actively worked with children and families with my music company, Jump Into Music.  In March 2020, when we all went into lockdown, I started teaching LIVE on Facebook. Hundreds of families joined me daily at The Get Together - When I'm at my house, and you're at your house, and we Get Together and JUMP INTO MUSIC! I am now publishing these classes on my YouTube channel. These personal and comfortable educational videos are there for you to share with your children, discovering beautiful things about our world, the people in it and the music we make no matter how many challenges we face.  In 2021, I released a fun video for The Get Together 'Down on the Drive' theme song referring to Commercial Drive, where I held a house gig for 15 years. What was an anthemic last piece of the night at in-person Live Shows for years with my band is now a lovable bubble-popping song for toddlers worldwide. Haha. Life is funny that way.   I hope you enjoy this educational channel!

Out Now

You, Me and the Moon

Embracing my connection to children, I released my first 'Children's Music' album on May 24, 2023. You, Me and The Moon explores the deep connection between parents and children. Inviting and tender, this record, along with the accompanying LIVE show, dances the audience through playful storytelling and sing-along songs to the quietest moments when we let go of the day.​ Marc Atkinson @ The Barn Studio on Hornby Island, BC, produced, engineered, and mastered the album. It is a stunningly beautiful spot to make music with a highly talented producer, musician, and person. I love working with Marc.  I hope the songs on You, Me and The Moon help families wind down the day honouring the child inside each of us and the deep love parents and caregivers feel for the children in their lives.  Two singles off the album have videos so far...Coucou (Mr. Moon) sang in French and English. This tune is well known worldwide, originating in Italy in the 1800s. 2nd song - is the traditional Jazz Standard lullaby Summertime, made from home video footage from my family. This tender video visits some happy times with my little kids.

My work...

This site holds links to my many explorations as an artist. 

 

I wrote my first musical play a few years back called 'Girls Night In', which ran at the 2019 Vancouver Fringe and was performed with my band, the Couch Choir. 

 

In 2020, I released Farewell, a full-length studio record filled with the songs honed and loved by local Vancouver audiences at my 15-year residency at The Libra Room on Commercial Drive.  

 

My children's performance group is called the String Bees, and we are the bee's knees when it comes to fun performing at festivals and local community events.

I work as an Event Host at several annual events and have run many musical series events over the years.  I'm always interested in hosting, let's chat!

As 'Teacher Monica' I am working both in person and online with my growing YouTube Channel

My original children's music is now out everywhere!  

 

I love working with filmmakers as a composer and have been lucky to have my songs used in fantastic projects. 

 

I put a few videos on this page for you to check out some of my work. I hope you enjoy exploring this site!

All songs are available on Bandcamp and all other platforms, too. Thanks for supporting musicians.

I am so happy you popped by.
