Musikgarten is the leader in early childhood music education and offers a complete multi-year educational program from birth to nine years. Musikgarten believes that every child has the potential to be musically literate, which means to be able to hear a melody and to write down. Singing, dancing and instrument play are all part of the class room experience. Emphasis is placed on children gaining a unique appreciation and understanding of music while developing important life skills.
Musikgarten nurtures child growth through a variety of fun musical activities and lessons. The Musikgarten curriculum is based on idea that music is a language and it is learned through interaction and experience. Musikgarten’s curriculum focuses on teaching universal fundamental music understanding such as beat, meter, tone and instrument identification.
The need for a strong foundation of musical understanding before learning more complex instrumental, voice or dance pieces is emphasized. Because of the strong foundation that Musikgarten provides, 75% of children continue with music year after year.
