Kelly’s Comments: Oh, Music Class, how I love thee. This is the 6th year in a row that I’ve had one or both of my kids in their classes. The teachers are top-notch (love ya, Miss Anna!) and the music education is first-class. Students ages birth-4 (and even a tad older in the summer…I’m bringing my 6-year old with my 3-year old this year) dance, sing, play instruments, and learn about music terms, styles, etc. You don’t just sing The Itsy Bitsy Spider…you do songs from Africa, Latin America, folk songs, you name it. My kids adore these classes. I will be the first to admit, they’re not cheap…but sometimes, you get what you pay for, and The Music Class is well worth the money. They also have keyboarding classes for older kids, albeit not at the East Cobb location.
