A NOTE ABOUT INFANT SIBLINGS IN MIXED-AGE CLASSES

Infants under 9 months old (by class start date) are free in the same Mixed-Age class with a registered sibling. However, we do need to know the infant will attend, so please register your baby. 

 

A NOTE ABOUT THE BABIES CLASS

This is an introductory semester to the Music Together® program for infants under 8 months as of the start of the semester. After one semester in Babies Class your family will be ready to matriculate into a Mixed Ages class the following term. At the end of your Babies Class semester you are welcome and strongly encouraged to Visit a Mixed Age class to complete your transition in anticipation of the next semester. 

 

A NOTE ABOUT THE MAKEUP CLASSES

Each MIXED AGE semester includes 1 Makeup Class built into the schedule at the end of the term. 9-week sessions will meet for a total of 10 weeks, so the 10th week is a makeup for your family if you missed a class earlier in the term. If you have perfect attendance Week 10 is a free bonus!

The BABIES semester does not include a complimentary makeup class at the end of the term because it's expected your family will want to attend one of the Mixed Age classes to complete your transition. 

If a class is cancelled by the teacher due to inclement weather, teacher illness, or other unforseen circumstances, every effort will be made to offer a makeup class. 

Frequently Asked Questions & Policies

 What should I expect at the first class? 

  • Classes run approximately 45 minutes. Teacher will strive to start and end class on time. 
  • Seating is on the floor. Wearing of clean socks is expected. 
  • Please eat before or after class. Put away phones, cameras, snacks, and toys before singing "Hello."
  • Adult participation is essential to the class. Child participation is encouraged, but never demanded. 
  • Expect to play, sing, dance, and share. 
  • Try to arrive early - especially if the venue is new to your child.

 What are Make-up Classes?

Make-up Classes are now offered through the online registration system. Please contact your Center Director if you are going to be absent. As a courtesy, your Director has included one free Make-up class built into the end of the term. For example, a 10-week semester has a total of 11 classes. Reservations for additional make-up classes are subject to availability. 

To avoid over-filling the classes, families need to schedule a make up online before attending; if the class you wish to attend does not appear in the scheduler, the make up spaces have been taken.  If you will be bringing two children, schedule a make up for each child as all children over 9 months of age need to be scheduled individually.  Need to miss or cancel your make up?  Please return to the make up scheduler and choose "cancel" (to credit the make up space back to the class and to your family for future use).

May I bring Siblings and Other Guests to class?

Parents, grandparents, and caregivers are welcome to attend class at any time—no need to ask. Whole family music-making at home is extremely valuable to your child's music development, and attending class occasionally helps family members feel more comfortable joining in. If you would like to bring another guest (including an older sibling who may be home from school), please contact the Director. Visitation spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis and cannot be guaranteed.

What is the Health Policy?

The health of all classroom participants is important to us, so we take measures to ensure the cleanliness of our classroom and limit exposure to germs. We take time to sanitize our classroom space, instruments, and materials after each class with a child-safe cleaning solution. If you or your child is sick, please stay home from class and schedule a make-up. 

• We strongly encourage hand washing and the use of antiseptic wipes in class. If another family member at home is sick with something very contagious (flu, pink eye), we ask that the whole family stay home until the incubation period is over.
• To reassure families this flu season, I always have hand sanitizer available and offer it after class. 
• We request that diapers be changed outside of the classroom’s crawling space and ask families to keep tempting snacks/drinks out of view and reach from other
children.
• We request that parents with children who are in a finger/thumb sucking stage, place any instruments used in our clean-up tub to be sanitized. 

When are classes cancelled? 

Holiday closures will be announced at the beginning of each semester. Classes may be cancelled due to inclement weather, teacher illness, and for other extraordinary circumstances. You will be notified by email and phone/text if your class in cancelled. The class cancellation may also be left on our office voicemail and posted on our website. Cancelled classes will be made up at the end of the session, subject to venue availability and other factors. If a cancelled class cannot be reschedule a tuition credit will be issued.

Opt-in to receive SMS Text Messages. This will only be used for last-minute notifications of class cancellations in the event of teacher illness or other emergency.

What is Priority Registration?

The Courtesy Pre-registration Policy for Enrolled Families has changed. To secure your space for the next term, you will have the option at checkout to pay the full tuition or a 10% non-refundable deposit.

Refunds and Credits

We offer the following refund policy(ies). The class description and the registration process will identify the specific refund policy for the class you have chosen.

Are Music Together Refunds or Credits available?

Full payment is due at the time of registration. You will receive a full tuition refund if you request to drop out of class before the first day of class. Payment plan requests are reviewed on an individual basis.
 
No tuition refunds are given for class withdrawals after the first class. After your first class, pro-rated credits may be issued upon review of individual circumstances. Priority Deposits for returning families are non-refundable. 
 
We understand that sometimes unexpected things happen. However, please note that non-attendance does not constitute a withdrawal from class. We are not able to offer tuition refunds unless we are informed of your intent to withdraw prior to the registration deadline.

**The director reserves the right to change class times, combine classes, or cancel a class at any time. Reasons include, but are not limited to, low class enrollment, general consensus of families to change time/day, family emergencies, etc. If this occurs, you will be notified as soon as possible.**
