Music and Movement Classes for Young Children
we nurture the child’s music aptitude
by engaging children and their families"We tried that other music class in town and came back because we find your classes intellectually stimulating."
in singing, instrumental play, listening, and movement activities to:
· attune the ear
· refine the voice, and
· develop a rhythmic body through which music can be expressed.

At the Ellen Johansen Music Studio, we teach Musikgarten -
Take a moment to look at my class schedule or read the class descriptions to decide what class is best for you and your child(ren), and then either fill out a registration form or contact Ellen Johansen with questions.
Words from a student that started with Musikgarten at my studio and is graduating from High School this year.
And I want to THANK YOU SO MUCH!! We appreciate all the education and history that you and Christopher have had together. I truly think the music that you have embedded in his DNA will give him a life time of enjoyment, satisfaction and enrichment; and, it will continue to light up his brain in all the things that he does. We are truly indebted to you in so many ways.
we are just grateful to have you as a mentor, intelligence igniter, music theory disseminator, musician and friend.
-Karin Ritter, Mother of Christopher, who started Musikgarten when he was Two and know plays amazing piano!
Why is music so attractive to children and why is music so well suited to children?
