Musikgarten of Lexington
Musikgarten of Lexington director Jennifer Tutt believes that cultivating kids' natural musical aptitude enhances more than just the ability to hum a tune; it can also boost memory, foster pattern recognition, and refine motor skills. Following a curriculum used around the world, instructors with master's and doctorate degrees in music nurture the all-around development of students ranging from infants to 10-year-olds. They bring parents in on the fun: many age groups encourage the attendance and participation of adults, who are also given engaging ways to continue the lesson plan at home. Depending on age level, classes mix singing and dancing with basic instrument play, and, for older kids, a smattering of music theory, history, and performance. All-ages private lessons run the gamut of 17 instruments, from piano and voice to viola and trumpet.
