Welcome to Prattland Music Adventures and MusikGarten!
We are pleased that you are considering music classes for your child. Research has shown that we are all born with an aptitude for music, but that aptitude diminishes if it is not actively nurtured between birth and nine years of age.
The Musikgarten classes offered at Prattland Music Adventures are designed to nurture the child’s musical aptitude by engaging children and their families in singing and movement activities which help attune the ear, refine the voice, and develop a rhythmic body through which music can be expressed. Additionally, instrumental activities are part of the program, ranging from playing simple rhythm instruments such as sticks and drums for babies and toddlers to playing keyboards for older children.
Musikgarten is the only program we know of that offers music curricula for newborns, through toddlers and preschoolers, to older school-aged children in group piano instruction. It establishes a distinct bridge for music and movement instruction through to keyboard instruction. It is based on a keen understanding of how children learn, in both a general sense and, specifically, how they learn music.
As you familiarize yourself with our class offerings and learn more about Musikgarten, we look forward to answering your questions and welcoming your family into our music studio.
