Introducing Kindermusik at New School of Music! New School of Music is proud to offer Kindermusik classes at our NSM Lilburn Campus located at Five Forks Shopping Center, 4100 Five Forks-Trickum Rd., Lilburn, GA 30047. Birth to age seven are especially exciting years when brain architecture begins to develop, laying the ground work for early language skills and the higher cognitive functions that follow. Giving your child KindermusikĀ® means giving them the opportunity to grow and flourish.
