21 Reasons EVERYONE Is Going to Sommerfest 21!

Musikgarten turns 21 this year and the FESTIVAL is planned! Are you in?

Reason #11: You'll connect with other Musikgarten teachers who share your same challenges and joys. Merrill Marshall of Merrill's Musikgarten told us, "The best part is being with so many other kindred spirits, teachers who do exactly what you do, and to connect and learn from each other."
