Cycle of Seasons: 2.5-5 year olds

In the Cycle of Seasons class, preschoolers explore the wonders of each season and how nature changes over the course of months. Together you’ll sing, chant, move, dance, listen, and play simple instruments, all activities that bridge the natural connection between music and movement. Each lesson features movement activities for coordination, body awareness and control, exploration of space, and instruments such as rhythm sticks, jingles, rattles, drums, and resonator bars.

Wednesdays 9:45-10:30am (14 classes)

Fridays 3:30-4:15pm (14 classes)

$255, includes Family Packet with CD, Parent Guidebook and 8 full-color animal cards

What the Research says…

Music and movement can have a dramatic effect on babies, toddlers, and older children as well. Some studies indicate that early music instruction positively impacts language and literacy development; others point to improved pattern recognition skills which are the basis for mathematical learning; still others reveal the social and emotional benefits of being involved in music.

The Next Step…Intro to Piano for Kindergarteners

For the 5 year old’s who are ready for a more focus on the piano, this is the class for you. It’s a mix of Cycle of Seasons (see above) with singing, playing rhythm instruments, dancing and storytelling — plus the basics of the piano. You will need a keyboard or piano at home so that students can play at home and improve from one class to the next.

Group Piano Classes

6-12 year old’s

There's a magic that happens when you fill a room with bright-eyed learners, beautiful instruments, and an inspiring teacher.  Students explore music, experiment, perform, and laugh together.  They challenge and support each other to new heights of excellence.  The sound of engagement coming from the classroom keeps students coming back year after year. Students are grouped in smaller cohorts of 6-8 and 9-12 years old.

Musikgarten children come to the piano ready to play the songs they have learned to sing, dance, and love. Small group lessons at the keyboard capitalize on your child’s delight in making music with others and allow the children to have success quickly playing songs that they know. With material for three years of lessons divided into six 15-week semesters, your child will learn to play by ear and to read music. A much-loved piano repertoire of familiar songs improves his ability to read and play with fluency – resulting in pride and excitement in making music! 

To continue the fun at home, you will receive a listening CD and a practice CD with special tracks for practice each week. Notation games, repertoire pieces, sight-reading pieces, opportunities for composing, and more are in your child’s comprehensive learning materials that will help him stay excited about playing and encourage him to make music long after the lessons stop. You’ll both love Musikgarten!
