Tuition costs for your child's music education will vary by number of children you register, length of season, type of class, and location of class. Tuition fees are due per child enrolled each season (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer.) The first registered Sibling over 9 months will receive a discount, and siblings under 9 months* are welcome to attend free with a registered child in the same immediate family. Please remember to register all children who will attend. There is no tuition fee for Moms, Dads, Guardians, Grandparents, Nannies, favorite Aunts, or other adult caregivers who attend classes with the child(ren).

ABOUT CLASSES AT SHERWOOD CENTER FOR THE ARTS
Willamette Valley Music Together is thrilled to return to our beautiful classroom at the art center where we enjoy a unique partnership with the City of Sherwood. Some changes to be aware of when you register for a class at SCA:
NEW FAMILY REGISTRATION FEE
Families who are new to Willamette Valley Music Together will pay a one-time Registration Fee of $15 when they sign up for their first semester. Returning families who were enrolled at WVMT during Fall 2017, Winter 2018, or Spring 2018 are eligible to waive this fee. Check your email for a code to use at checkout.
*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. How do you know when you're ready to start bringing baby to class? As soon as the adult care provider is ready, we are happy to receive you and your new little music maker!
A NOTE ABOUT THE MAKEUP CLASSES
Each MIXED AGE semester includes 1 Makeup Class built into the schedule at the end of the term. 10-week sessions will meet for a total of 11 weeks, so the 11th week is a makeup for your family if you missed a class earlier in the term. If you have perfect attendance Week 11 is a free bonus! Note: This policy will be discontinued beginning July 1, 2019.
The RHYTHM KIDS semester does not include a complimentary makeup class at the end of the term.
If a class is cancelled by the teacher due to inclement weather, venue closure, teacher illness, or other unforseen circumstances, every effort will be made to offer a makeup class or tuition credit for the next semester.
Make-up Classes are now offered through the online registration system. Please schedule your known absence(s) when you schedule your makeup(s). Reservations for additional make-up classes are subject to availability. Use the "Schedule a Makeup" tab on the website to find an open class.
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).
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.
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.
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 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.
Opt-in to receive SMS Text Messages. This will only be used for reminders or last-minute notifications of class cancellations in the event of teacher illness or other emergency.
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.
Full payment is due at the time of registration. You will receive a full tuition refund less the non-refundable new family registration fee if you request to drop out of class before the first day of class. Payment plan and scholarship requests are considered 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.**
