Early Years Music Program birth to 5 years
We believe Musikgarten is a wholesome all encumbered music experience
Musikgarten offers instruction which is just right for each age level—from your baby who benefits greatly from being part of a live music environment, right up through school-age children who delight in our private and group instrument classes.
Beginning with singing, moving, and exploring rhythm instruments, we add levels of complexity as the children grow, expanding the singing repertoire, teaching more complex dances, and building instrumental ensembles. Children coming through the Musikgarten program inherently not only develop a solid music start but are socially adept, academically stimulated and scholastically prepared for school and, let’s not forget the fun factor, learning to play an instrument, including voice is bringing them.
