MUSIKGARTEN originates from U.S.A. It is a revolutionary early childhood music education company designed to enable teachers to understand how children from birth to age 9 learn music. Musikgarten provides teachers with the tools to help a child grow musically, as well as emotionally, socially and cognitively.
Musikgarten specializes in the following:
- Teaching early childhood music education to teachers through workshops.
- Supporting new and existing Musikgarten studios
- Producing world class curricula and classroom materials

In 1994, Dr. Lorna Heyge and Dr. Audrey Sillick founded MUSIKGARTEN on two fundamental principles:
Children deserve the best teachers and learning materials. Musikgarten utilizes the best workshop trainers and student materials to enable our new teachers to meet the expectations of parents and their children.
Teachers, much like students, need the freedom to be themselves to reach their full potential. Musikgarten provides both the freedom and the guidance necessary through a flexible curriculum.
Musikgarten features the ideal combination of teacher training, curricula, instruments and business support. We know that Musikgarten will show you how to engage children in a dynamic learning process and help them form the basis for a life-long love of music.
