Welcome to Musikgarten!
We are so pleased that you are considering music classes for your child. Our goal is to promote active musik-making in the home. Our curriculum is based on a keen understanding of how children learn--in both the general sense and specifically how they learn music. As you learn more about Musikgarten, we look forward to answering your questions and welcoming your family into our program!
Musikgarten and COVID-19
While Valparaiso Community Schools (VCS) and Immanuel Lutheran School (ILS) have reopened at this time, we are following protocols outlined by our national, state, and local health authorities. In order to avoid the potential for outbreaks and to avoid potential interruptions due to possible school closures, our classes have been temporarily suspended.
While music certainly cannot fix the problems we are facing, it is a gift that can lift our spirits. Church reformer and musician Martin Luther (who lived through a plague in his own time) once said, "Beautiful music . . . can calm the agitations of the soul; it is one of the most magnificent and delightful presents God has given us." While we are enduring the challenges brought on by this pandemic, we hope that you will be able to take a break from time to time with your children; hold them close, play musically with them at home, and sing lullabies to them. They are such a blessing!
