Current research shows that early childhood (birth- 6 years) music education enhances all aspects of brain development; stimulates more neuron connectivity and has a long-term impact on the brains ability to develop to it's fullest potential.  With the internationally recognized Musikgarten curriculum we strive to develop functioning musicians, finding joy in music, learning to improvise, write and read music, and eventually learning to play the piano. Through singing, dancing, rhythm and tonal patterns, discriminative listening, exposure to a variety of percussion instruments and world instruments we joyfully find the musician inside every child
