Welcome to the MusikLab!
What is a
We provide the space and instruments and you do whatever moves you. MusikLabs are unstructured, all ages, and all ability. We encourage our active students to attend when they've missed a class, need a little extra practice, need some inspiration, or just because. Guests are always welcome to join too!
We switch out instruments and props every week and try to never repeat a discovery set. These instruments and props are in our main classroom during MusikLabs and are available for general use. We have a big red piano in our main classroom open for communal use every MusikLab. MusikMakers students are welcome to the practice lounge during MusikLabs and may reserve a keyboard or ukulele to use for independent practice.
What kinds of instruments will there be?
MusikLabs are open to all children 17 and under and their accompanying grownups. Grownups must remain in the facility attending to their children at all times. We encourage all active students to attend, but space is limited so all attendees (active students and visitors) must register to reserve their spot. Friends under 18 that are not registered for a MusikLab must remain in the gathering area. We are inclusive to all abilities, but please note that our average lab volume is around 75 decibels.
MusikLabs offer a casual environment for musical exploration and learning. SO much can be learned through a structured learning environment, but there are also benefits to a creative, self-led learning environment. We want to offer both! In a MusikLab, your child will be able to run their own musical experiments at their own pace. That might mean your infant watches a big kid play the piano, or maybe your big kid practices performing for a wide-eyed infant audience of one. We're committed to your child's musical journey, whatever it may be.
