MUSIC & MOVEMENT PROGRAM for Young Children and Parents

Next Session Days/Times TBA

Meet Musikgarten- Drop in for a Free Class!

Join us for an introduction to the wonderful world of Musikgarten! Come experience the joy of making music with your young child. Learn songs and rhymes to use at home for years to come. Find out why Musikgarten is the leader in early childhood music education.

The Meet Musikgarten mini-series is a sneak peek into the rich curriculum of Musikgarten, a complete multi-year educational program that helps infants, toddlers, and children develop a deep love of music and the ability to express it. Songs, games, movement, and instrument playing opportunities center on animals and other favorite childhood themes. Deeply rooted in the understanding of the important role of the family in education, all classes involve the parent or caregiver.

Full sessions, beginning this Fall, include a parent book, instrument or scarf, and  Musikgarten CD of outstanding music for movement, singing, and listening at home. Sign up for the full 4 week Meet Musikgarten series to earn a discount off Fall tuition!
