Musikgarten with Mrs. Elnora and Mrs. Nicole

As well as teaching private lessons, Elnora is also is a certified Musikgarten teacher that teaches group lessons in Lloydminster, Alberta to young children from babies to age 9.  Musikgarten is a teaching system that reaches the child right where he/she is at.  As music is an international language, children should learn it similar to the way they learn language.  First by listening, then by vocalizing, then reading and writing.  Musikgarten starts with the basics of rhythm, tonal patterns, actions, dancing, and songs, as a fun introduction to music.  There are so many physical, social, developmental, and musical benefits from joining in a Musikgarten class!

MusikgartenGroup Keyboard

 

 

Group Keyboard is for ages 5-9.  It introduces a student to the fundamentals of playing keyboard as well as  focusing on developing musicianship by means of melody patterns, rhythm patterns, by using percussion instruments, as well as movement and singing.  It is ideal for students who are musical, but have a hard time sitting still. The curriculum is designed to develop the ear and teaches students to learn how to transpose early on.  This approach of learning to play is a very strong precursor to private lessons.
