MUSIKGARTEN

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.

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 building instrumental ensembles.

Family Music for Babies
(Newborn to 18 months)

Designed for parents and their babies to take together, these weekly classes help you learn how to play musically with your baby. Each class features bouncing and rocking songs, wiggle and peek-a-boo games, and other fun activities for the two of you. When you go home, you can continue the fun with a superb CD recorded by a fine children’s choir and outstanding instrumentalists. Using your parent guidebook along with rhythm sticks, a Musikgarten rattle, and colorful scarf will give you both hours of enjoyment.

Musikgarten's musical play for babies:

  • Increases your baby’s curiosity about music

  • Develops listening skills and a sense of beat

  • Establishes a foundation for singing and musical thought

  • Helps you form a closer bond with your baby

  • Gives you and your baby a chance to interact with other parents and babies

Family Music for Toddlers
(18 months to 3 years)

These weekly classes are action-filled for toddlers - full of energy, often on the move, always exploring and learning - and their parents. Together you’ll sing, chant, move, dance, listen, and play simple instruments, all activities that bridge the natural connection between music and movement through four wonder-filled semesters. 

Each lesson features movement activities for coordination, body awareness and control, exploration of space, and instruments such as rhythm sticks, jingles, rattles, drums, and resonator bars. 

Additionally, you’ll receive a wonderful CD, a parent activity book, and an instrument or scarf to use at home for more fun time together.

Cycle of Seasons for Preschoolers (ages 3 to 5)

Celebrate your preschooler’s growing independence and love of the outdoors with activities involving the four seasons in The Cycle of Seasons. Developed to build attention and self-expression, activities include singing, chanting, moving, focused listening, musical games, exploring musical instruments, creative movement and storytelling. The Cycle of Seasons nurtures your growing child’s ability to use language and participate in dramatic play within a musical context.

Fun family packets including wonderful music CDs are included for use at home to increase family involvement in the learning process.
