Sharing our faith provides the central theme for the activities in each lesson. Each lesson provides a personal invitation to you, your child, and your family to share your faith in celebration through music.
Each lesson will provide an opportunity for your child to experience music through singing and vocal play, moving, listening, exploring musical concepts, and playing musical instruments.
All of the materials are presented in different ways throughout the curriculum: through fingerplays, creative movement, stories, poems, dramatic play, songs, and musical activities.
It is our hope that you will use your home as a place to nurture and support your family’s exploration of the traditions and stories of our faith. We hope the songs and musical activities become a part of your family’s daily routine – a bedtime prayer, a mealtime blessing, or a morning song of praise. The act of making music together will play a significant role in your child’s development of body, mind, and spirit.
We also wish to draw the children into the worship experience of our community and invite all Musikgarten families to join us at 9:00am or 11:00am for service on Sunday Mornings. Nursery care is provided.
