Thanks for stopping by A Family Place. I enjoy working with families, and sharing the power of music with them. Kindermusik provides this outlet for me. This blog will allow me to share thoughts and ideas that can help families in their journey.

Class Updates for Kindermusik of Berry College

If you miss a class you are welcome to make it up on another day/time.  Unfortunately some classes don't have that option...especially the evening classes.  It would be helpful if you could email about making up a class, just so we know you are coming.  It is not imperative, but encouraged.

A big change is happening on the Berry campus and it will affect Kindermusik.  The construction of the beautiful new welcome center is almost complete and opening soon.  Berry faculty, staff and students will be issued new stickers that will allow them automatic entrance to the campus via an electronic system.  Here is what you need to know:

Those without Berry stickers will enter through a visitor’s lane and be asked for identification.  The process should be very quick. With time, we plan to enable some of our regular  visitors to purchase stickers for a charge that covers the sticker cost.   We hope to put this program in place later during 2015, after we have completed the transition with the Berry community and have addressed any technical or procedural issues.  Until then, those visitors are welcome to enter through the visitor’s lane.

There is always a learning curve with a change and new procedures.  You may need to allow a few extra minutes to get to class on time and thank you for your patience as Berry makes these adjustments.  An announcement about the commencement of this new policy/procedure will be sent via email and also made on the blog. 


  1. Allow plenty of time to find a parking place and get to class. Once you arrive on campus, it will take you at least 5 minutes to get from the parking lot to the classroom.
  2. The elevator is a great asset. Please help us keep the alarm from ringing or the help button from being pushed. Buttons are inviting to children, and they are low...but keep them from calling security! Let them push the "floor" buttons, but stay away from the red and yellow ones!
  3. Please use quiet voices and walking feet as you enter the building. First floor where you access the elevator is full of offices. Once on third floor there are college classes in session. If you have to take your child in the hall during class because he or she is crying, go to the north end of the hallway or the restroom to avoid disrupting classes.
  4. In case of severe weather, Kindermusik follows the Floyd County Schools. If the Floyd county schools are closed due to inclement weather, then Kindermusik will not meet. If the county cancels classes after 2 p.m. check for an update on the blog or on the Y Kindermusik of Berry College Facebook page! LIKE US!  If you want to be certain call the office and there will be a message about the weather, 706-233-4091
  5. Kindermusik of Berry College does not follow a specific school system for spring break, so teachers will announce these to individual classes. There will also be announcements in class, on the blog and on Facebook.
If you have questions or concerns about anything in class, talk with your child's teacher.
You can always email me at for a quick response to general questions, or leave a message at 706-233-4091.  Email for Kay Bratton is and for Wendy Williams is

We are glad you have chosen Kindermusik, it's a great way to enhance your child's life through music.
