“Our one year old son Thomas just adores all the vibrant colors in the facility and the excitement from all the kids and teachers. He has a great time in every class. We will continue to enroll him until he is too old."

“I find it so fun to get out of the house and be able to take BOTH of my kids to a class and let them learn, play and enjoy music. We are planning on booking Eli's 2nd birthday party at Musical Magic and cannot wait to plan the event with Miss Katie.
