"My daughter attends Musikgarten and she immensely enjoyed it from day one. The kids have so much fun while learning the basics of reading music and exploring different musical styles. I love that families get to join in at the end of the class to watch a short performance or participate in dancing, playing and singing. The class is on a far more advanced level than she would have the opportunity to engage in at her elementary school music class. Mrs. E. is a treasure!" (Madelyn Baum, March 25, 2016)
