WELCOME TO MUSIKGARTEN BELLAIRE, offering quality music classes for young children in Bellaire and Houston since 2009..

Unfortunately, our studio will remain closed through August 2021 due to Covid-19 and a  health issue of Mrs. Vaughan's.  We will update here once a plan is in place for reopening. Thank you for your patience!

Musikgarten Bellaire offers classes for babies, toddlers and preschoolers, as well as two pre-piano classes for older preschoolers and kindergarteners.  Children ages 6 and up can join our keyboard classes!

Research has shown that we are all born with an aptitude for music, but that aptitude diminishes if it is not actively nurtured between the ages of birth and nine. Despite the pandemic we currently face, children do not postpone growing and blossoming! Music continues to be one of the very best activities for children, and it is my heartfelt desire to keep the joy of singing, dancing, and becoming musically literate a reality for you and your families.

Online learning for young children does have its challenges, but they are greatly reduced by the parent or caregiver joining the child for online classes, just as they would for in-person classes. Remember: YOU are the model for your child! Your participation ensures that you are bolstering your musical repertoire and increasing your comfort level when it comes to singing, dancing, and playing musically with your child. Win-win!

The Musikgarten curriculum is designed to develop your child’s music aptitude by engaging children and their families in singing and movement activities which help tune the ear, refine the voice, and develop a rhythmic body through which music can be expressed. These early childhood music classes create an environment that nurtures the whole child and promotes musical literacy in active, joyful and developmentally appropriate ways.

I have chosen to teach Musikgarten because I believe it is the best early childhood music curriculum available, whether in person or online.  It is based on a keen understanding of how children learn, in both a general sense and, specifically, how they learn music.  A child who begins with Musikgarten classes will be well prepared for instrumental instruction by age seven.

I encourage you to keep the singing, dancing, and listening alive in your child's daily life.  Music is great therapy for the unique challenges we are facing currently.  Please let me know if I can answer any questions.  I'm excited about teaching this curriculum and would be honored to play a role in your child's musical development.
