What’s coming up

So many reasons

to sing

Good news. Bad day. Feeling stuck. Starting something new and big. Loss. Gain. Looking for answers. Full of hope. No matter your day or current circumstance, there is a reason to sing because of who God is and because He loves us.

That’s what fuels the Contemporary and Traditional Music teams as they lead worship experiences, put on concerts and musicals for the community, and teach the next generation of musicians.

these aren’t your average music programs

Calling all tiny musicians, singers and performers! Our youth music programs are taught by professional musicians and music teachers. Kids make friends, learn music and make a whole lotta noise!

Fall registration is now open!

CHILDREN LOVE MUSIC!

Your child isn’t too young to start learning the Musikgarten way. We have classes for toddlers, preschoolers, and babies. In Musikgarten we help you & your children develop their love of music and musical skills through active and fun-filled songs and movement.

The Fall 2022 Session is 13 weeks of classes. You will have class once a week for 30 minutes. There are several options offered each weekday and Saturday mornings. Each family receives Musikgarten’s outstanding recorded music and a colorful book to use at home.

BABY CLASS: Newborn to 16 months:

Music class with your baby features bouncing and rocking songs, wiggle and peek-a-boo games, and other fun activities for the two of you. A take-home music kit lets you continue the fun with Musikgarten’s outstanding recorded music, a guidebook, and an instrument kit for baby (rhythm sticks, soft wooden rattle, colorful scarf).

Cost for the semester is $115 (Two or more sibling registrants per class will receive a $25 per registrant discount)

Musikgarten for babies:

  • Increases your baby’s curiosity about music.
  • Develops listening skills and a sense of beat.
  • Establishes a foundation for singing and musical thought.
  • Helps you form a closer bond with your baby.
  • Gives you a chance to interact with other parents.

FAMILY MUSIC for MIXED AGES:  Babies 18 months through 5 years old:

This is a four-semester program designed for all ages of preschool children and their grownups to experience the joy of music making together. It will nurture your child’s musical aptitude and listening abilities, while developing key skills that are vital for all learning: listening, following directions, impulse control, communication, and positive social interaction.

In each 30-minute weekly class, kid friendly folk songs help to develop your child’s language, singing, dancing, and listening skills. They will also experience a variety of simple instruments and like all Musikgarten courses, it will enhance your child’s social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development, while building a foundation for future music proficiency.  That’s important for you to know, but for your child it’s all about the pure fun of music and movement shared with you!

Cost for the semester is $110 (Two or more sibling registrants per class will receive a $25 per registrant discount)
