I'm so looking forward to the first week of our Joyful Noise Music Studio, multi-age fall classes, beginning Tuesday, September 7th and continuing Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings with 9am and 10am class options on the front lawn at 411 Park Ave in River Forest, IL.
In cases of inclement weather, we are so blessed to be able to use the beautiful Little Bits tent through the end of September. Starting in October, it will be used by Little Bits on Saturday mornings, in which case we can use our wonderful studio on the third floor! For Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday classes, though, the tent will continue to be available. On mornings with bad weather, since email blasts can take up to a full day to send out, I'll post a sign in the front lawn that we'll be in the tent/studio. Simply walk down the driveway of 411 and you'll see the tent in the back :) If you have any last minute questions, just text 312-485-9252. One thing I'm so excited about with the tent is that you can open up both entryways, as well as the four windows for more fresh air, while being sheltered from the rain! And our studio will also get plenty of fresh air with the six windows open and fan running :)
For your first class, if you have not submitted payment via Zelle to email@example.com, please bring a check to Joyful Noise Music Studio for $278.50. Once your payment is turned in, I'll give you your materials which include a fabulous "Sing With Me" CD, a song book, and four rhythm sticks.
You'll be receiving an email very soon from Ms. Beky with more details on your class; how to get the most out of it, the best way to utilize your materials, and important class expectations.
We still have a few spots left, so spread the word if you'd like a friend to join!
Tuesday at 10am- 2 spots

Musikgarten believes that all children have musical aptitude and artistic promise and that early childhood is the opportune time to begin to develop this potential in an active, joyful, and developmentally appropriate way. At Musikgarten of Oak Park we encourage you to show up to your child's life with loving minds and joyful hearts. We make sure that every step of the way the parents and caregivers partner with the teachers and children, keeping their relationship to music and learning playful, meaningful, and connected. The songs, musical activities, stories, poetry, instrumental play, and appreciation for nature are enjoyed in the context of family togetherness.
Musikgarten’s curriculum is established in research-based, tried-and-true, and holistic practices that grow the heart, mind, and body of the child. Classes promote musical literacy, singing and rhythmic skills, aural perception, language development, motor coordination, ensemble skills, and loving interaction while awakening the child’s imagination and creativity. Instrumental activities are part of the program, ranging from playing simple rhythm instruments to playing keyboard for older children.
Our approach to music education is fun for children, parents and teachers. As a result of our sequential pathway to music education, children can become independent, creative musicians. To foster music literacy, Musikgarten offers a comprehensive early childhood program that spans the first nine years of a child's musical development. Children love the progression from semester to semester, as patterns and songs are repeated and built upon, addressing students' needs at each level.
