By the way, Mistletoe Musikgarten is the only music studio in Fort Worth that offers Musikgarten's integrated music and movement education curriculum from birth through keyboard. And we've been offering Musikgarten in Tarrant County since 1997.

Registration for fall and spring classes is on-going and and continues until all classes are filled.

And remember, younger siblings attend free, if they are younger than the class age-range.


Family Music for Babies & Young Toddlers (birth - 17 months)

11 weeks + one FREE make-up week

All babies are born with an aptitude for music, and research shows that their aptitude diminishes if it is not nurtured. By singing and dancing with our children in a variety of tonalities, meters, and styles, we are helping our children reach their full potential musically.

This 30-minute class offers adults the opportunity to play with their babies in a musical setting, experiencing music and movement activities designed to delight the child and awaken his or her curiosity about music. By singing, dancing, bouncing, and rocking, the child's music aptitude is being carefully nurtured, laying the foundation for beat awareness, vocal production, and aural discrimination. Finger plays, body awareness games, and echoes are included in each class.

Tuition:$160 (early bird and other tuition discounts available)
Materials:$36.95 (CD, parent book, instrument kit) + $3.05 (tax)
Total:$200


Family Music for Toddlers (16 - 35 months)

11 weeks + one FREE make-up week

This 30-minute class is designed to bring the joy of music and movement to toddlers and their caregivers. Activities include singing, dancing, focused listening, and simple instrument playing in a joyful and safe environment in which the child's music aptitude is nurtured and skills are developed. 

Younger siblings are welcome to attend free!

Tuition:$160 (early bird and other tuition discounts available)
Materials:$32.33 (CD, parent book, one instrument) + $2.67 (tax)

Explorers (33 months - four years)

11 weeks + one FREE make-up week

This 45-minute class is designed to nurture the emergent independence of the three-year-old and young four-year-old child.

Activities include lots of singing, chants and rhymes, listening games, more complex rhythm and tonal patterns, and movement games. These activities nurture the child's musical development while satisfying the child's need to learn in a holistic environment.

Parents participate fully throughout the class. Younger siblings are welcome to attend free!

Tuition:$230 (early bird and other tuition discounts available)
Materials:$41.57 (CDs, parent book, listening games) + $3.43 (tax)

Music Makers at Home (fours, fives, young sixes)

6 weeks (at studio near Fort Worth Zoo)

This 60-minute pre-keyboard class cultivates the child's musical development through songs, more complex tonal and rhythm patterns, poetry and stories, movement activities, listening games, and instrumental ensembles. Basic music skills such as pitch matching, beat competency, ensemble development, and music notation are introduced using themes from the child's home environment and natural surroundings.

Parents and younger siblings participate for the first ten minutes and the last ten minutes of class.
(Parents are encouraged to remain in the studio waiting area during the class, as their participation in the last ten minutes is essential.)

Tuition:$130 (early bird and other tuition discounts available)
Materials:$29.56 (CD, notation games, posters) + $2.44 (tax)
Total:$162


Music Makers at the Keyboard (fives through nines)

Each semester is 12 weeks or longer.

The final step on the pathway to music literacy, this program is designed to teach the children to play the songs they have been hearing, singing, and dancing to throughout the years of early childhood. An extension of the work done in Music Makers at Home in the World, this class follows a very sequential approach to building piano skills and understanding musical notation as set forth in the books Music Makers: At the Keyboard.

Parents participate at the end of each class. Homework assignments each week include musical games, listening, and daily practice at the keyboard. Parental involvement at home is the key to success.


If your child is new to Musikgarten, this class will be a great fit when your child is seven, eight, or nine years old.

Tuition:$22 per week
Materials:$50.81 (two CDs, student book, games) + $4.19 (tax)
Total:Approximately $330 per semester (if 12 week semester)


Private Piano Lessons (keyboard grads / adults)

Weekly lessons throughout the semester

Students who have completed Book 3 of Music Makers at the Keyboard often enjoy paired or private piano lessons. Students build on the understanding and skills developed during their early years. At this point, they begin to find opportunites at home, at school, at church, and in other community organizations for sharing their music joyfully with others.

Adult relearners enjoy strengthening their piano skills through regular lessons, tailored to their needs and abilities.

Adult newbies are welcome here at Mistletoe Musikgarten, too.

Tuition:$22 per week for 30-minute private lesson
Materials:purchased as needed
Total:Varies per semester
