Welcome to Miss Ginger's Musikgarten! I have been a music teacher for thirty years. Since teaching Musikgarten classes I have grown to appreciate the depth and quality of the curriculum. My classes are a wonderful place to enjoy "Mommy and Me" music making and to develop your child's natural music ability. I love it! The songs you learn with your child in class come from classic children's music literature from multiple cultures. At different ages, there is poetry, storytelling and, at all levels, classical music in different styles. Every class I teach demonstrates to me the connection young children have with music. They love to hear it, move to it, sing and play it. Every baby and toddler loves to hear their mother's voice and to hear his/her name in a song. Three, four and five year olds love to pretend and to engage their imagination in the words of the songs and the movement stories and sounds of the accompaniments. And our keyboard students continue to enjoy learning games and dances and learning in the group setting.
I have added new levels of the program to my schedule each year. This year I am offering Musik Makers at Home in the World and Music Makers Around the World, also referred to as Pre Piano I and II for four and five year olds.
Musikgarten is the only program that offers curricula for newborns through group piano instruction. It is based on a keen understanding of how children learn, in both a general sense and, specifically, how they learn music. I am thrilled to use a curriculum that so thoroughly engages the child at his or her developmental potential.
As you familiarize yourself with our class offerings and learn more about Musikgarten, I look forward to answering your questions and welcoming your family into my music classes.
