In December 2014, Musikhaus Music Education moved from Belo Horizonte, MG, Brazil, to Seabrook, Texas, USA (with mascot Jessie! – see photo), becoming Musikhaus Piano and Early Childhood Music Studio, serving the Clear Lake / League City area southeast of Houston (the Bay Area) and Friendswood. The new Musikhaus will officially inaugurate activities for the fall semester of 2015, though I’ve been very fortunate to be teaching my first, talented piano student in the US since January!
This year Musikhaus will focus on musical beginnings to help students learn music similarly to the way they learn their native languages:
- Music Play – interactive music and movement for babies, toddlers and preschoolers up to 5 years of age with caregivers; groups of 2 to 6 students, 40 minutes per week (plus attunement and transition time)
- Keyboard Games – classes for 4- to 6-year-olds incorporating singing, movement and piano activities; groups of 2 to 4 students, 50 minutes per week
- Piano Lessons for 6 years and up – developing musical fluency with improvisation and creative repertoire at the piano, singing and movement; groups of 2 students, 55 minutes per week (50-minute private lessons possible if lesson partners not available)
Let me know if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org, or follow the Musikhaus Facebook page to stay up to date.
The Musikhaus space, including bathroom, is wheelchair accessible except for wide cambered chairs.
