These classes are designed to bring the joy of music and movement to babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers and early elementary students. Activities include singing, dancing, focused listening and simple instrument playing up through Piano. We create an environment in which the child's music aptitude is nurtured / skills are developed. Our teachers are degreed, certified and passionate about teaching your children. The children have fun through games, songs and activities from birth through piano. We tune the ear, refine the voice, and develop a rhythmic body through which music can be expressed.
Bryan started The Music Garden at 15 months in the Family Music class. He was very young & clingy and only wanted to play with the blinds! But after 8 classes, I really started to notice a difference. He started sitting in my lap during songs and wanted to participate in the echoing and stick tapping. Now we are in our second semester and he loves it! Robyn BrennanContact For Reference
My 5 month old loves her class at The Music Garden! Ms Leilani is wonderful and helps me work with her even at such a young age. She loves watching the other students dance and sing and I know she is learning something new in each class we attend! Kirby GorContact For Reference
