Children's Music Studio

Children's Music Studio began in 1997 as a pilot program of Community Music Project. The classes are based on the internationally acclaimed Musikgarten curriculum.


The fundamental goals of CMS are to develop musicality in children as early as possible, musical literacy, and the ability to sing with accurate tones and rhythms. Our 30 or 45 minute classes are designed for children and toddlers with their caregiver. 


Classes begin February 1, 2022

When music and movement are a natural, joyous part of childhood, children benefit greatly in many areas of life.


Musikgarten's philosophy is steeped in this understanding. Movement and music activities are perfect for child development. Music immerses the child in language, evokes movement, stimulates the brain, and fosters physical coordination — all in a group setting that builds community — a truly holistic experience.
