Children are naturally drawn to music.Â By engaging children in music classes, they not only get a leg-up on their musical development but on all other educational pursuits. Musikgarten involves the wholeÂ family, and there are positive social implications as well.
We spend our 30 minute class singing, chanting, moving, dancing, listening, and playing simple instruments– all activities that bridge the natural connection between music and movement for coordination, body awareness and control. With their grown-up, kids as young as birth learn music principals in a safe environment for exploration of space, and instruments such as rhythm sticks, tone bars, jingles and drums.Â And parents get important bonding time and with their child.
