Contact me about a free class for prospective families!

A certified and licensed Musikgarten teacher, I offer classes for babies as early as birth to 18 months and toddlers up to 3 years in the Family Music curriculum, and early music makers for 3-5 year-olds in the Cycle of Seasons curriculum. The Musikgarten program is the only early childhood curriculum to use music and movement as a pathway to music literacy, and address the whole child. 

All ages are welcome!


"The "Do oh do" and "hello/goodbye" songs have been stuck in our heads all afternoon! Haden now claps and taps hello and goodbye to everything and it has been an enormous help for transitioning him from one activity to another. He also loves dancing with my scarves now. Thank you so much for starting this class. It is making such a wonderful difference"

"My sons, Remy and Dean, LOVE Musikgarten with Molly! Remy and Dean are one year old and they have learned so much from this class. This has created such great interaction between us. They get huge smiles on their faces when we walk into class and see Molly. I am so grateful for this class and Molly!"
