Congratulations! By considering music education for your child at an early age, you have taken a first step toward bonding musically with your child and enriching your family life with active music-making.

 

Children are naturally drawn to music, which will make your time with them in Musikgarten both fun and beneficial.

 

Why Musikgarten
