Musikgarten Class

$50 gift certificate towards Musikgarten classes offered in 15 week sessions. Next session begins mid-January in the Bozeman area.  Music stirs emotion and touches all spheres of development. Help your child learn the language of music at an early age to enhance communication, large and fine motor skills, social and family interaction while laying a musical foundation which will encourage life long music appreciation and involvement.  Utilize music classes to foster a music maker instead of just a music consumer.  Register your child at for music and movement classes taught by certified and licensed Musikgarten teacher, Rachel Waterman.

The Musikgarten program is based on teaching musical skills, language and rhythm to meet the developmental needs of children as they grow from birth to age five.  Favorite songs, stories, and dances are revisited throughout the program creating solid musical foundations through repetition – building on what each child has mastered and enjoyed – making successful learning easier.  Parent participation and reinforcement at home enhances a thriving musical experience throughout life.

Rachel Waterman, an experienced piano teacher, certified and licensed Musikgarten professional and mother of two brings a nationally recognized early childhood music and movement program to the Bozeman area.

Value: $50 gift applied to one session costing $96 to $121.50 depending on child’s age.

Mention Musikgarten from the MT Parent Magazine and receive 1 free class.
