This Saturday we begin our new Kindermusik semester. For those of you who are new to our program, here’s a little primer to let you know where we are located and how to find our classroom.
For the past 18 months, Masterworks Studio has held Kindermusik classes at Columbia Presbyterian Church on Columbia Drive in Decatur. I love the old church and its grounds with all of its beautiful foliage and gardens, but we developed a problem there this fall – not enough space in our classroom! Because of the Waldorf School of Atlanta’s need for all the classroom space available there at Columbia Presbyterian, we had to look elsewhere for a larger room.
I am very pleased to announce that we found a perfect spot at Avondale First Baptist Church, located at 47 Covington Road in Avondale Estates, just 2 miles east of Columbia Presbyterian. The folks at AFBC are thrilled to welcome our classes there, and, in fact, have also just begun a Mother’s Morning Out program for the community. In the picture above, you can see our classroom building (Building C) immediately behind the sanctuary on the lefthand side.
We have ample, FREE parking in the lot directly across Stratford Road beside the church, which you can see in the picture above. Once you park in the lot, you simply cross the street (which is very easy, and not heavily traveled during class hours) and come up the steps to Building C.
The first white door on the left at the top of the stairs is the church office. Just past the office door is a set of double white doors with my purple Kindermusik sign standing just outside. There is a sign hanging just over these doors which says:
Go in the double white doors, and then come up one full flight of stairs. This is actually a flight of stairs followed by a very short flight (approximately 3-4 steps). At the top of this series of stairs, you will enter a door and turn left. There you will find the door to our new, large classroom on the second floor which overlooks the parking lot and is the full width of the building.
We have plenty of room to continue to grow, and, in the months to come, I will also be able to teach piano and flute private lessons there as well. Avondale First Baptist Church is in the process of establishing the Avondale Academy of the Arts, projected to open in the fall of 2008. I will be blessed to be a part of the faculty there.
