Sitting still?  "Paying attention"? 

Ummm ... no.

Novato Piano School's toddler program provides children the opportunity to learn the way they NEED to learn: through movement and play and with a loving caregiver at their side.

For example...

You and your child will experience ACCLERANDO and RITARTDANDO while we sing about trains, we'll explore QUARTER, HALF and EIGHTH notes through bounces, finger plays and rhythm echo games and we'll even learn about the FERMATA while we sing "Happy Birthday" to a classmate!


Each week the adult participants will learn specific games and activities that use traditional folk and classical musical and are designed to nurture the young child's overall development while acquiring music literacy.

Classes include…

· Instrument Exploration

· Music Vocabulary

· Steady Beat Practice

· Focused Listening

· Rhythm Patterns

· Vocal Development

· Rocking & Relaxation

· Keyboard Geography

· American Sign Language

· Musical Storytime

· Creative Movement & Dance

· Traditional Folk Music

· Classical Music

3 fun instruments to take home & play!


When music and movement are a natural, joyous part of childhood, children benefit greatly in many areas of life.


Language development, self expression, memory, concentration, social interaction, fine motor skills, listening, problem solving, teamwork, goal setting, and coordination are all impacted by early music education.


What's more, as a child learns to play music, other areas of their development — creativity, family bonding, self-esteem, confidence, emotional development — are also positively impacted.


Musikgarten's philosophy is steeped in this understanding.  Music immerses the child in language, evokes movement, stimulates the brain, and fosters physical coordination — all in a group setting that builds community — a truly holistic experience!
