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.
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)|
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)|
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.
