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.


Family Involvement

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.
