Musikgarten: Family Music for Babies (birth-18 months)
Play musically with your baby through bouncing and rocking songs, wiggle and peek-a-boo games, dancing, moving, and singing. A foundation for singing and musical thought is established through activities designed to increase your child's curiosity about music, develop listening skills, and build a sense of beat through movement. Children must be accompanied by an adult for all Musikgarten classes.
$30 registration fee for new student applies.
Summer classes begin Tuesday, June 12, 2018 (no classes July 2-8)
Fall classes begin Tuesday, September 18, 2018
Specialists agree that early exposure to music plays an important role in children's emotional, intellectual and social development. Developmentally appropriate activities build fundamental musical skills and help prepare children for a wide range of music and school activities.
Our Musikgarten® teachers are highly trained professionals with classroom and field experience in early childhood music education and child development.
Musikgarten®’s programs are based on meeting the developmental needs of children as they grow. Favorite songs, stories and dances are revisited throughout — building on what each child has mastered and enjoyed and making successful learning easier.
Learning continues throughout the week in the home environment. Musikgarten® participants receive CDs, family activity guides and simple instruments that parents may use as they continue making music with their child at home.
Musikgarten classes are also offered at the Winnetka Community House in the fall. Please visit www.winnetkacommunityhouse.org to register
