This summer's toddler music program is going to be a wonderful part of your Hampton's Summer. The theme for our toddler classes is "Going Outdoors" and it is part of the Musikgarten curriculum which fosters the musical, intellectual, social-emotional, and physical development of young children through appropriate Music and Movement activities.  Each class session is a unique musical experience! We will be tapping, clapping, dancing, rocking and playing musical instruments on a fresh summer lawn separate family groups. The instructor, Ellen Johansen, will be guiding this weekly music class.  I hope you will include this wonderful experience to your weekly Hamptons Summer.

"We tried that other music class in town and came back because we find your classes intellectually stimulating."

"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❤
