This class provides a perfect introduction to music for preschool and elementary school students. By singing, moving to the beat, listening and playing a variety of instruments, young children acquire a musical foundation that will benefit their chosen instrument or singing later. They also enhance language, self-expression, imagination, motor function and sharing skills. Parents are asked to sit in with their children.
Classes are divided into age groups for toddlers, preschoolers, pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students. Piano Class is part of the developmental sequence of the MusikGarten curriculum.

Music Makers: At Home in the World¸ your child will be engaged in activities that establish a solid music-making foundation. This year focuses on your child’s fascination with nature and develops a love of instruments. Your child will be introduced to the sounds of orchestral instruments individually, and then in the context of an ensemble. Such a listening foundation will lead to long-term success with music reading in future classes.
We also start private lessons on most instruments at age 6.
