"Classics on the Move” is our program for young children designed to develop their musicality. Engaging in a wide range of musical activities enables children to understand and relate to music, ultimately leading to creative self-expression.




The curriculum we are using for our program is called Musikgarten. It is one of the most interesting, exciting and advanced curricula for young children today. You can read more about it at

A large emphasis of our class is listening to classical music. The main difference between classical and popular music of today is that classical music is all about dramatic development while popular music is usually capturing one emotion. That is why most popular songs are short, while a classical symphony could be more then an hour long. What keeps the listener captivated? The unfolding of the story in the piece. If we can hear it, we can “watch it like a movie” waiting for what happens at the end: does the hero win or lose, will he or she overcome or give up? The children will listen to the world's best masterpieces while moving with the music and acting out what they hear.
