The Broadmoor Musikgarten Academy, founded in 2006, is a music and movement program for children from birth to seven years old and adult keyboard students. The early ages are an opportune time to start a musical journey with your child and will establish the foundation for later classes. The first class is free for new students. All Musikgarten classes meet in West Wing 3.

Parents observe the end of class. This class allows the active music making to continue, but in a wider, multi-cultural context. It builds upon the previously learned skills and begins to build note reading and pattern recognition skills, truly laying the foundation for beginning keyboard. Classes meet weekly for one hour with the parent/caregiver attending the last 15 minutes of class; Tuiition is $100 per semester (15 weeks). Registration is $60 which includes materials.
Adults enjoy learning music together at the keyboard in a recreational, group setting – no pressure, no performing. All experience levels welcome. No musical experience or perceived talent necessary.
