May I bring Siblings and Other Guests to class?

Parents, grandparents, and adult 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.

• 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


• We request that parents with children who are in a finger/thumb sucking stage, place any instruments used in our clean-up bag 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/or phone/text if your class in cancelled. The class cancellation may also be posted on our website and Facebook page. 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 rescheduled a tuition credit will be issued.
