    Music education is a holistic approach that addresses every area of early childhood development. Through singing, listening, movement, dancing, and the use of rhythm instruments, children from birth to age 9 develop gross and fine motor skills, steady beat, melodic and rhythmic pattern imitation and recognition, and social skills. These skills have been shown to be essential building blocks for speech and language development, reading skills, and spatial reasoning. Materials and curricula developed by Musikgarten, an internationally-recognized early childhood music and movement program.
