Markard Music is a piano and early childhood music studio serving the Hamptons and the North Fork.  Marlene Markard, the Founder of Markard Music, teaches baby and toddler music classes and summer camps at different locations throughout the Hamptons and the North Fork.  Marlene teaches the Musikgarten curriculum, a leading international early childhood music program.   Marlene's classes for babies and toddlers (birth - 4 years of age) are designed to lay the foundation for music literacy, foster a life-long love of music, promote social, emotional, cognitive, kinesthetic, aural, and language skills, and prepare children to have success in taking a musical instrument.  Marlene also gives private in-home piano lessons to students of all ages, starting at age 5.
