Our Preschool has been built upon the developmentally sound Musikgarten Curriculum that our families already know and love!  This means your child gets a full year of Musikgarten included in Preschool!

 

Singing, movement, theatrics, playing instruments, and focused listening activities are the core of our program, and our Preschool also includes Kindergarten Readiness Skills along with Arts & Crafts.


Children are immersed in a rich learning environment of the Arts and Nature that they can relate to and enjoy! Making music and making friends, all within a creative learning environment that fosters a LOVE of learning and a love and respect for self, nature and others!  


Every Tuesday, parents join for the final 15 minutes of class.  This is our practice with all Musikgarten classes, so parents can experience how easy it is to make music a part of home life.  This also keeps communication open and provides an opportunity to bond with your child musically.

In At Home, your child learns music through exploring the sights and sounds of various habitats:  Home Place, Woodlands, Cattail Marsh and Meadow.  This nature platform is a joyful way for your child to connect to music, and you will watch him connect easily and quickly!

 

Your little music maker will discover many of the different instrument families this year, and specific instruments will be demonstrated by guest musicians. You will see the wonder in your little guy's eyes as he gets to see, hear, touch and feel this live instrument demonstration. 

 

But this is not all.  Soon he will join together with our friends, creating instrument ensembles, hearing specific musical patterns within the context of a song, and reading and writing music notation!!  At Home is a very exciting year for your child!  You will delight together in all he is learning as you witness this growth during Parent Time and at home.  

 

When appropriate, At Home can be taken for two years.

World Class prepares the child for first year KEYBOARD/PIANO class. Children explore a people and their culture through song, dance, and story specific to British, Native American, African-American and German cultures.

 

One goal is to make the connection from ear to page through reading, writing and playing music notation. Glockenspiel instruction is included and provides another way to reinforce their pattern vocabulary and work on fine motor skills needed to play piano. Children grow their rhythm and tonal patterns significantly this year, and they are so proud of what they can READ and PLAY!
 

When appropriate, World can be taken for two years.
