Early childhood music education


Early childhood music education or “muskari”, as it’s known, brings a little joy to the everyday and supports children’s development.

More than musical baby steps, muskari also develops social skills in a child and promotes a healthy self image. Muskari is aimed at all pre-school age children and their families. Children under the age of 3 must generally be accompanied in class by an adult.

At muskari, children use their voices, their bodies and instruments to make music. Muskari is also a great footing for a lifelong musical practice. In addition to games and nursery rhymes, children play songs, new and traditional. Movement, dance and hands-on art making are all also part of muskari classes.

The length of the class is between 30 and 90 minutes and our semester is 30–32 weeks. Muskari takes place once a week, spots are reserved in the order of registration. Places are usually reserved for the entire semester prior to its start, but children can also join mid-semester. Some classes might take the form of concerts or visits. Juvenalia also offers Special Music Education.

Muskari classes also take place at participating nurseries during their regular day. Participating nurseries are:

Espoon englanninkielinen leikkikoulu (Karakallio ja Kilonpuisto), Eestinkallion koulu (eskari- ja koululaisryhmä), Haukilahden päiväkoti (Haukilahden monitoimitalo), Kauklahden päiväkoti, Kilon päiväkoti ja Aspelinin esikoulu, Kilonpuiston lastentalo, Kuninkaisten päiväkoti, Laaksolahden Montessori-leikkikoulu, Laaksolahden päiväkoti, Lasten montessorikoulu, Lintuvaaran päiväkoti, eskari ja koulu, Lähderannan päiväkoti, Mikkelän päiväkoti, Pisan päiväkoti, Päiväkoti Humiseva, Päiväkoti Leikkis, Taavinkylän lastentalo.


Welcome to Juvenalia’s stream muskari! Every week a new segment is made available which will also be available to download. These videos are a great way to make music at home, providing you with various methods, as well as a chance for parents to peek into the world of Juvenalia’s muskari.

Explore the content at your own pace and apply the methods in whichever way suits your family the best. Bring in some stuffed animals, toys and costumes and let the storytelling and the music give your imagination wings!

The instrument workshop will include tips on making your own instruments – shakers, sticks and percussion can easily be made out of recycled and natural materials. Real instruments used at muskari classes are available to buy at your local music store, or online. You can even put together a family band!
