Put your child on an exciting path of lifelong music making, starting in infancy. The beneﬁts of music education are many. Music immerses the child in language, enhances brain functioning, and fosters physical coordination. Music improves overall development and decreases learning problems. Music has even been connected with resiliency—the ability to bounce back after a disturbing event.
Our MusikGarten FAMILY MUSIC and PRE-SCHOOL programs: especially for ages one-and-a-half through seven. Musikgarten is one of the leaders in early childhood music instruction, offering a carefully sequenced curriculum designed to tap into skills every child has. All children are musical, having an inborn ability to sing on pitch and to keep a steady beat.
Whether you (the grown-up) are a trained musician or a novice, we provide a nurturing, safe space for you to learn to share your love of music with your child. Children of the age for Family Music (toddlers 15 to 36 months) learn best through informal play; parents participate fully with their children. Children ready for Pre-School Music (ages three through five) learn with a bit more emphasis on structure and specific instruments; parents may participate less and observe more at this stage. We sing, listen, dance, play games, play instruments, explore sounds, and giggle & wiggle together. We hope that you enjoy the class as much as the teachers and children do!
Our SMALL FRIES program: especially for ages four through seven. These group general music classes really ramp up your child’s early musicianship skills. With the piano as our central instrument of instruction in the classroom, these older Pre-Ks and early elementary schoolers also study singing, drumming, rhythmic movement, playing by ear, playing from notation, ensemble performance and improvisation. Their musical skills are being readied in preparation for private music study to commence. These classes are limited in size to a maximum of eight children. Depending on class size, two teachers may “team-teach” for maximum quality of instruction. Parents may observe or drop the children off for independent learning.
