What are the benefits?

Musikgarten’s founder, Dr. Lorna Heyge, comments:  “While educational leaders turn to early childhood music because it promotes brain development, they will stay with music because of the joy and stimulation experienced in actual music-making.  Music learning requires total involvement – that is why it appeals so much to young children!”
