Tooting Tots just got more creative. Owner Angela Argenzio is offering a new program catered specially to children ages newborn to 9 years old; the first semester starts Oct. 23. Argenzio offers the only sequential program in the surrounding area and operates the business out of the comfort of her own home. Combining the philosophy of Montessori education with her own background as a music therapist, Argenzio’s intimate studio is the spot for children to express themselves musically.

“Self-expression is important and leads to other positive outcomes for a child, like helping with socialization,” Argenzio says of her program.

The new program, as part of Musik Garten, is a sequential program that uses a lot of repetition. These patterns are introduced at a young age and lay a good foundation for the children to begin using a keyboard when they get older. For this reason, Argenzio chose Musik Garten because, through the use of redefined traditional folk songs, the program employs themes like nature and the changing of seasons to help create patterns in the children’s minds.

The new Musik Garten program also spurs a true bonding process for parents and their child. And of course, Argenzio encourages parents to give their vocal cords a test because, well, everyone can sing.
