Why sign your child up for a Musikgarten class? Simply put- it is an excellent Early Childhood Music Education Curriculum that will have significant positive benefits for your child! Musikgarten is an early childhood music education program developed in the United States, with roots in Germany. It is unique in its approach to developing a child's natural affinity for music and gives young children a foundation upon which to build their musical literacy skills. The philosophy surrounding Musikgarten is that teaching music concepts to young children through rhythm and tonal patterns, songs, and dances, allows them to successfully learn an instrument when they are older.
Musikgarten Classes will be held outdoors with shelter provided. The Musikgarten curriculum teaches children about music through songs about the natural world, so what better place to learn than outside!
This Musikgarten program is all about experiencing the joy of music. Children will experience the wonder of music in an outdoor setting, and with their loved one. The My Day Family Music curriculum teaches children the foundations of music through songs, dances, and poems about their own day and the world around them. Children and parents will get to play different instruments and have fun creating music together. Come and enjoy music as a family! This program is geared towards children ages 18 months - 3 years with parents encouraged to participate.

"My daughter, 2 years old, loved Ms. Anna's music lessons. She looked forward to attending every week. The lessons are a balance of song, dance and making music, with a focus on rhythm. Ms. Anna's gentle, patient and professional demeanor was well received and my daughter immediately was drawn to her. Thank you Ms. Anna for offering such a wonderful musical opportunity!

"Anna's group music class has sprouted a passion for music in my 3 year-old son. We started with Musikgarten in September and by Christmas we watched while he put on concerts at home where he was able to carry a beat on his own drum while singing along! Although often shy, he's comfortable trying new things because of Anna's warm encouragement. She creates a truly inviting environment for the children to explore music and really learn the fundamentals of rhythm and beat. Musikgarten is a fabulous program that has exposed our toddler to age appropriate instruments and started his arts experience off so well with time spent not only in music but also in singing, dance, storytelling and poetry. Thank you Anna for this wonderfully educational and fun music class!"
