Musikgarten: Music Makers II - Around the World (Ages 5-7)

This class explores the music of the British Isles, Germany and our Amerindian and African American heritage.  It features songs, dances, stories, rituals and customs of these cultures to enhance your child's cultural awareness.  The curriculum builds on skills for developing music literacy, including symbolic thinking, concentration, and memory and incorporates activities for self-expression, creative movement, and ensemble work.  Children must be accompanied by an adult for all Musikgarten classes.

 

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.
