Ellen Johansen, owner and sole teacher,  is an early childhood music and movement instructor. She is also a piano teacher and has taught piano for over 40 years.  The Ellen Johansen Music Studio has been offering Musikgarten classes and group/private piano lessons for over 30 years.
 


During  the early months of covid ,the studio went completely online, which kept many families connected to music.  As  spring  of 2021 brought new hope, the studio opened for outside toddler music classes and  inperson private instruction.  This Fall the studio offered outdoor Baby, Toddler and Preschool Music classes in East Hampton and a Toddler Music program outdoors in WaterMill. 

The music studio  in East Hampton  now offers outdoor music and movement classes and indoor group piano and private piano lessons.  All participants are fully vaccinated and/or fully masked during the classes and lesson indoor.  The outdoor space is now a fenced area with lighting and enough grassy area to keep even the most active tooddlers safe and engaged.  Teaching music outside has proven to be the best way to offer music to young children in a natural setting.  




 
 



"We tried that other music class in town and came back because we find your classes intellectually stimulating."
- Parent enrolling in a Toddler Music Program

"Is Today Music Day?"
-a daily question from many of my enthusiastic toddlers!

We all enjoyed your program so much! What is truly amazing, is the fact that they all walked into the class and didn't know one thing about music. And look at them now. You did an amazing job!

"Lillette woke up and twirled around singing "the north wind doth blow and we shall have snow and what will the robin do then? He'll keep himself warm inside of the barn and he'll hide himself under his wing. Poor thing. " I almost died from the cuteness. Thanks for giving her this gift. "

From a mother of a piano student studying with Ellen Johansen:

Hi Ms Ellen,
I heard my son play the First Noel this morning. What a total change from a boring just reading notes play he did before your piano lesson with him. So beautiful with all the dynamics. My spirit just lifted and brought me memories.(we use to sing this in church when I was a little girl) Isn’t that amazing!? A simple music can changed your mood and can take you back in time. God is so good, for giving us the gift of music.  Just want to let you know.
