Summer 2023 Enrollment is Now Open!
Welcome to Musikgarten at Texas Amps & Axes: School of Music in Prosper! We are pleased that you are considering music classes and/or a music camp for your child. Research has shown that we are all born with an aptitude for music, but that aptitude diminishes if it is not actively nurtured between the ages of birth and nine.
As you familiarize yourself with our class offerings and learn more about Musikgarten, we look forward to answering your questions and welcoming your family into our music studio. We are offering a mix of classes, camps and lessons to fit your family’s preference.

How about a summer morning or night each week with other families singing, dancing, and playing with your child through song, movement and instruments? Children have an inborn love for music! They are born with the ability to sing, to move rhythmically, and to express themselves musically! Likewise, children have an inborn love for the rhythm and rhymes captured in nursery rhymes. This collection captures the best of both worlds, combining the joy of music making with the fascination for playing with the sounds of our language. Take what you learn in class to carry out in your own family music time!
Weekly classes will be led by Musikgarten trained instructor, Ms. Kristin.

Summer is surely the most welcome of seasons, a time to put on a hat and sandals, and head outside! Summer is also family time, a perfect time to move, listen, sing and play together.
Movement, singing, and speech lay a foundation for creative development via storytelling, poetry, play, dance, and more. Preschoolers will build on the rhythmic and tonal pattern awareness in music as well as continued exploration of a variety of musical instruments while tapping into the child ’s vivid imagination and building the child ’s growing independence and competencies. Listening skills are also developed through focused listening activities and guessing games with animal picture cards.

We focus on developing rhythm and tonality by playing simple instruments, singing patterns, songs, and drumming. Then we will go to the piano to learn the patterns to piece together and play familiar songs. This is an aural approach to learning how to play the piano which will then evolve into the children learning to read music. This 8 week session introduces them to the keyboard and gives your child an idea if piano is something they would like to pursue!
Learning music and piano in a group setting as well as variety in activities is so enjoyable for the children! There is a maximum of 6 students in this introduction to the keyboard.
Family Materials for Intro to Keyboard include: Bound Book (12 pp.), CD with digital code and a 10-inch hand drum.
