In Musikgarten, we are not trying to create tiny musical prodigies or mini-Mozarts. Our mission is to develop in children a lifelong love of music, and give them the competency to take that love and develop it however they wish! Musikgarten gives children a strong musical foundation that they will keep their entire lives. While it is possible to teach these skills later, they will never come as easily as they do in early childhood. Don’t miss out! There are too many people in the world who love music, but feel like they can only listen. Give your child the gift of musical literacy, and they will never lose it!
