MUSIKGARTEN classes are fun group music classes for babies, toddlers, & PreK age children. We sing, dance, listen, & explore with instruments. While we play with music in song, children develop their sense of rhythm and their ability to recognize & produce tones all while having fun with their peers. Parents join in for the fun and learn how to take musical fun home to the family!
MUSIKGARTEN is a curriculum of early childhood education that develops the love of music in infants, toddlers, & young children. The program was created by Dr. Lorna Lutz Heyge, the originator of Kindermusik, Eastman School of Music graduate, & a PhD in Musicology; and by Audrey Sillick, the founder & director of the Toronto Montessori Teacher Training Institute. Together they blended their knowledge to develop learning using movement & music for young children.
