I am licensed and certified to teach Musikgarten. http://www.musikgarten.org
On-site Musikgarten classes are offered for individuals or small groups. I am happy to work to set up classes with playgroups for mommy and me time. We can arrange for the person who hosts a group to receive their tuition for free. Contact me for more information.
Two levels of curriculum are available:
I teach Musikgarten’s Family Music for Babies (newborn to 18 months) which is a class designed for parents and their babies to help parents form a closer bond with and to play musically with their babies. The classes are designed to be a great introduction to music for babies, develops listening skills and establishes a foundation for singing and musical understanding. It also gives your baby a chance to interact with other parents and babies. Classes feature wiggle and peek-a-boo games, bouncing and rocking songs, and lots of fun activities for parents and infants. You can continue the fun for hours of enjoyment at home with optional class materials that include a CD and a colorful scarf, rhythm sticks, and a Musikgarten rattle.
I also teach a Family Music for Toddlers Musikgarten class (age 16 months to 3.5 years) These weekly classes are full of action for toddlers and their parents. You’ll sing, dance, chant, move, listen, and play simple instruments. These activities connect music and movement through four semesters. Each lesson explores movement activities to develop coordination, body awareness and gross motor sckills, and instruments such as rhythm sticks, rattles, jingles, drums, and resonator bars. You can also purchase an optional set of class materials and receive a CD, an activity book, and an instrument or scarf to use at home for more fun together.
