What is The Music Class? A Family Business for Your Family!
The Music Class Inc. (TMC) is an early childhood music education company that offers music and movement classes for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers. Our award winning music, written and recorded in-house, is loved by both children and their caregivers.
The Music Class was founded by Rob Sayer in Atlanta, GA in 1998. What began as one studio of classes in Toco Hills has grown into an international program offered in over a thousand locations worldwide! We have mostly grown by word-of-mouth through happy families and teachers who love this program as much as we do. TMC still operates as a small but mighty office team in Atlanta, and works very closely with all of our center directors around the world!
For over 24 years, Mr. Rob has continued to teach his own classes in addition to running the business. His daughter Raina Sayer is currently the center director for our locations in China and is taking a larger role in the management of the company. When you join The Music Class as a student, parent, preschool teacher, or center director, you truly become part of The Music Class family.
Research-Based Music and Movement Programs
All TMC programs are research-based and designed to teach children in the ways they learn best. Classes are full of creative movement activities, music is provided to families to facilitate meaningful repetition outside of the classroom, and children are exposed to a huge variety of musical styles through our song collections. Research shows that early childhood music education has the biggest impact on a person’s musical abilities for the rest of their lives. So the best time to start Music Class is now! Our 3 core educational philosophies are reflected in everything we do here at TMC.
Award-Winning Children's Music that Parents Enjoy too!
What’s the most important aspect of early childhood music education? The music! Our collections feature recordings by Grammy-nominated musicians and musical styles like rock, jazz, opera, and traditional songs from all over the world. Songs in different meters, scales, rhythms, and styles featuring real instruments and vocalists provide recordings that are not only extremely educationally valuable, but also a joy for both adults and children to listen to!
Core Values of Quality and Inclusivity
At The Music Class, we believe in the highest quality education and support for our children, teachers, and business partners. We believe that music is a creative and expressive art, and that the path to becoming a musical person should be joyful. We embrace families from all cultures and backgrounds and stand against racism in both our classrooms and our music.
Staff that Believe in our Program
As a family business, we are personally invested in making our company the best it can be for you. We have a small, dedicated office staff, all of whom either teach TMC themselves or attended classes with their own children!
