Give your Child a World of Possibilities

From the moment they are born, you feel an overwhelming urge to give your children the world. Then life gets in the way. There are time and financial constraints, social pressures, and conflicting advice. How do you give your children the most beneficial experience within the constraints of modern life? Easy. You do it through music.

Studies from around the globe have shown that, from a very early age, music lessons can have profound long-term effects that include improved language development, higher standardized test scores in math, improved graduation rates, and even decreased likelihood of drug and alcohol use.

What Musikgarten offers is more than just an easy way to introduce your child to music. Our classes can play a critical role in your child’s social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development, as well as laying a pathway to musical proficiency. Moreover, Musikgarten provides dedicated time each week when you can bond with your child free from distractions and watch them grow into a confident, independent, and expressive young person.

Music Makers: At the Keyboard

Music Makers: At the Keyboard, Ages 6-9:

Music Makers: At the Keyboard is a comprehensive approach to learning music.
Learning music comprehensively is much more than being able to name notes or being able to differentiate between quarter and half notes. Comprehensive musicianship leads a child to music literacy, or the ability to hear in one’s head music that is written on the page. Conversely, the musically literate person will be able to figure how to play the melody, harmony, and rhythm of a piece s/he hears, without needing to see the written music.

Music Makers: At the Keyboard is a group method. By studying the piano in a group setting, singing games and movement activities are naturally a part of the experience. These are the very things that nurture the musician inside each child, making success at the keyboard possible. The group also allows children to learn from each other and overcome performance anxiety. Most importantly, the group setting keeps the fun in music-making.

Music Makers: At the Keyboard is an aural approach. Years of experience have shown us that children learn to read and understand musical notation only after they have a strong aural foundation in place. In Music Makers: At the Keyboard, keyboard skills are layered on at the appropriate time and at an appropriate pace, thereby allowing the aural foundation to be established and reinforced. But that doesn’t mean that the children won’t be playing very much. The fact is that in the first year, they will be taught to play more than 25 songs in the keys of C, D, E, F, and G Major and c, d, e, f, and g minor. Additionally, the children will be playing I, IV, and V7 chords in multiple keys with both hands!

Music Makers: At the Keyboard lays the groundwork for keyboard success! Through the variety of activities in each class the children become independent musicians. They have both a love of music and a love of a specific repertoire, both of which are major incentives for practicing. In addition to playing the keyboards, the children will be involved in drumming and dancing to nurture their rhythmic development, singing to nurture their tonal development, and echoing patterns to nurture their aural development. And composing and musical dictation activities lead the child to music literacy.
