Shannon absolutely loves working with the little ones, showing them how to sing and tap steady beats, how to dance and sing with the music! Musikgarten’s principles and Miss Shannon’s are the same. First teaching music, and understanding children by inspiring parents. “My most sincere encouragement to parents is to make music freely with your child…to lose yourself in the world of childhood, to delight in the play that your child is showing you, and to experience your child’s wonder and enjoyment of the musical world.” Musikgarten Founder. Miss Shannon can’t wait to introduce this wonderful gift of music to everyone!!
