Part of our mission is to connect local families with awesome local businesses. This week we’re highlighting The Music Garden in Peachtree City. The Music Garden just opened for business two weeks ago, and is still taking new students. If you are looking for a great way to introduce your child to the basics of music in a fun and exciting way, The Music Garden is for you!
The Music Garden is owned and operated by Luanne Harms whose love for teaching your kids music shows the minute you talk with her. You don’t have to spend much time with Luanne to see that she LOVEs what she is doing at The Music Garden.
We have been attending the Sweet Peas class for three weeks now. Each class incorporates music and rhytmic movement and allows parent and child to enjoy the class together. I have had a great time helping Eli learn the actions, and move to the beat!
I’ll be the first to admit that when I came to my first class I thought that it was probably going to be way over Eli’s (15 mos) head. But after having been to 3 classes, I am shocked to report that Eli not only enjoys the class, but has started to pick up on the routines and actions. He knows that he is supposed to bounce up and down when we sing ‘She’ll Be Coming Around The Mountain’, and LOVES the Walk and Stop song. He even taps his knees like he is playing the piano when he is singing to himself at home sometimes. It is too cute. I am so excited for him to continue these classes that are designed to build upon each other and teach him the basics of music.
Anyone is welcome to try out a class for free. Luanne is also very flexible with her schedule. If you don’t see a time that works for you on the calendar, just let her know and she will work something out. The current class schedule is as follows:
Sweet Peas (ages 0-18 months):
Periwinkles (ages 15 mo-3 1/2 years):
Poppies (ages 3 1/2-5 years):
Blooming Buddies (Kindergarteners):
Prelude (1st graders):
Sonatina (2nd and 3rd graders):
Music for Families (mixed ages 0-4 year olds, siblings):
Mondays 6:00-6:45 (Pajama class!)
It is not too early to be thinking about music classes this summer! We’ll all be looking for places to hang out indoors when the heat of July and August hits, so consider signing up for a summer session.by
