MUSIC WITH GINGER


Children are naturally drawn to music which will make your time in Musikgarten classes both fun and beneficial. Activities include bouncing songs and rocking songs, finger plays and body awareness games, dances and instrumental play, all of which stimulates the brain, fosters physical development, and cultivates listening skills. And only Musikgarten can offer you coordinated, sequential curricula to grow with your child all the way through group piano lessons.

Musikgarten involves the whole family! In addition to attending classes with your child, you will receive a wonderful CD full of fun songs to sing, beautiful lullabies to rock with, lively melodies for bouncing your child, and instrumental pieces for playing rhythm instruments or dancing to. Additionally, you will receive a set of instruments, and a book to help support you as continue the music-making at home.

Musikgarten classes for all preschool ages: Family Music for Babies, Toddlers and Babies and Cycle of Seasons, ages 3 – 5. Class curriculum is 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 – making successful learning easier.
