Simply put, children love music. Music touches all spheres of child development; language and literacy development, pattern recognition skills - the basis for mathematical learning, as well as social and emotional growth are all positively impacted by being involved.in music.

By focusing their natural inclination, Musikgarten helps young children develop a love of music and the skills to play it through a series of activity-filled age-appropriate lessons. Your child isn't too young to start learning the Musikgarten way. In fact, Musikgarten has music classes for babies, music classes for toddlers and a variety of music classes for preschoolers. Wouldn't you want your child to have the Musikgarten advantage?
