Musikalische Mäuse is a German music and movement program for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers. The song material used in class derives from the German folk tradition, spiced up with a contemporary flair, allowing families to reconnect with their own childhood memories and passing them on to the next generation in a fun-filled way. Old and young will enjoy learning how to use the songs creatively and how to include them in their daily routines. We invite non-German speakers to join in as well, and make sure that everyone can follow easily.
The classes are age appropriately designed. They are infused with finger plays, dance segments and instrument exploration and provide a rich environment for music development, creativity and cognitive development.
Learning a language through music is very effective. Rhythm and melody help the brain to memorize with ease. The latest research shows that music has a unique way in activating speech pathways.
Come and find out what it can do for you and your child.
