We’re not just teaching music. We’re transforming a generation.
High-quality early childhood music and movement classes, such as Musikgarten, are shown to:
- create new neural pathways
- develop active listening, comprehension, language, memory, and vocal response
- develop balance and both fine and gross motor skills
- teach the brain to notice patterns
- engage social skills
- help children achieve academically and socially
- help children define body parts
- transmit culture
Musikgarten offers instruction that is just right for each age level—from your baby who benefits greatly from being part of a live music environment, right up through preschool-age children who delight in exploring the Cycle of Seasons through dramatic play in a musical context.
Beginning simply 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 eventually tying the songs and activities to music notation, preparing students for further study in private lessons, ensembles, or just for life!
Family Music (ages 1-4)
These weekly classes are action-filled for toddlers—full of energy, often on the move, always exploring and learning—and their grown-ups. Together, you’ll sing, chant, move, dance, listen, and play simple instruments, all activities that bridge the natural connection between music and movement.
Each lesson features movement activities for coordination, body awareness and control, exploration of space, and instruments such as rhythm sticks and jingles.
