“Education through music, not musical education.” — Daniel Barenboim

The Musikkindergarten places special emphasis on conveying musical capability to children, in addition to providing them with a grounded, creative, holistic, varied, and aesthetically stimulating environment in their early years.

The musical dimension of our kindergarten includes not only giving youngsters a chance to come into contact with a wide range of musical instruments but also teaching them in a playful way to develop a feeling for rhythm, to learn the art of listening, and to develop motor skills through dance and creative movement.

In short, the goal is to provide a children with a chance to experience their awakening senses. The kindergarten incorporates aspects of the performing and fine arts into virtually all areas of early childhood education. Music and art become an integral part of their daily lives.

Our staff of professional caregivers has received special training in incorporating music into early childhood education. Musicians from the Staatskappelle Berlin and the Staatsoper’s choir, as well as Daniel Barenboim support the team through regular visits. These professional musicians inspire the children not only by demonstrating their musical prowess but also by sharing their passion.
