I am delighted to announce that Ms. Olivia will soon offer Musikgarten classes at her new Joyful Noise Music Studio. Before the grand opening, I am grateful to join her this summer in teaching outdoor classes.
How we have missed our shared musical joys with the children and families who are dear to our hearts.
We will be offering our first outdoor Musikgarten class at Barrie Park this Wednesday morning, June 16th, at 10 A.M. We will have all materials and instruments. You are also welcome to bring an instrument, a blanket to sit on, and a sun umbrella.
We will continue to offer classes at 10 A.M every Wednesday and Saturday through the end of July. No classes June 19, & July 3
Class fee is $15 per child for each class. Children over five and all grown ups attend for free. Payment can be by cash, check (Payable to Olivia Mullins) or to chase quick pay at: Olivia.firstname.lastname@example.org
Though advance registration is not required, please r.s.v.p. to Ms. Olivia at email@example.com to confirm attendance. This will help us with our hello song, as well as confirm the amount of instruments and materials required. Include your name and each child's name. Invite anyone and everyone!
We are overjoyed at the thought of being together again, singing, dancing, and enjoying musical play. We hope to see you sometime soon.

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.
