Class Descriptions


Summer: My Musical World for Babies (babies (non walkers))
Weekly 45 minute classes

 Play is a wonderful way for baby and the family to play together.  Musical play activities provide caregivers with opportunities to help baby develop physically, emotionally,, socially and intellectually.  These intimate, interactive activities anticipate and support signs of development as they ocur daily, in an environment of trust and security.  In Class we will rock, bounce, dance, sway, and play with simple musical instruments and create an environment perfect for a baby.  At the same time, the caregiver has the chance to learn wonderful new musical activities that can be shared throughout the rest of the week.

We meet in a climate controlled indoor music space with carpeted floors. 

Home material includes music in a CD or digital Download format, a parent booklet and a special set of classroom instruments used only by your child (Their own set of sticks, their own rattle and a lovely scarf in a cloth bag).  You can take this home weekly or leave in the studio and take home at the last class.

Nursery Rhymes + Music = Fun for Siblings and Parents


Musikgarten has captured the magic of nursery Rhymes in its program called Twist and Turn.


â—‹The delightful language and the movement response it evokes, speak to the most active children as they explore walking, jumping, twisting, and turning…

    “Oliver Twist, you can’t do this”

â—‹The rhyming words and playful rhythms help children to quickly catch on to the verses, allowing them to participate fully…

    “Dr. Foster went to Gloucester”

â—‹The tales told by the nursery rhymes and song material encourage the older children as they are developing language skills and challenge them to use their imaginations in new ways.  The rhymes and songs are just as appealing to the younger children in the room, whether it is a toddler enjoying the movement, or instrumental play or the infant who is simply enjoying the sound of the music and the rhythm of the words as s/he bonds with his/her mother.
