Registration

Registration is on a first come, first served basis. Please use our online registration form to reserve your child's place in class. You have the option to pay later (tuition is due no later than the first week of class send payments to address on Home page) or pay online at the time of your registration. Please print and mail your registration form with payment. There is no service fee for returning families.

A full refund will be given if you withdraw will be issued until one week before classes begin.  Like most programs, we cannot normally refund or give credit for classes missed during the semester, even if absences have been frequent. Nonetheless, at the discretion of the director, partial credit may be provided toward future classes in cases of prolonged absence due to severe illness, or other unusual circumstances. Processing fees are non-refundable. Refunds will be issued by check only.  Cancellations after the one week deadline will be subject to a $60 cancellation fee. NO tuition refunds will be given after the first day of class. 

Late Fee:  A $25 late fee will be applied if payment has not been submitted by the 3rd week of classes. A reminder will be sent out to avoid late fees.

Class times and teachers are subject to change at any time. Notices will be sent out if any changes are made. 

Make-up Classes

If you miss your regularly scheduled Music Together® class for any reason, you may schedule a make-up class. Two make-up classes are allowed each semester for each registered child, on a space-available basis. They must be taken during the current semester and cannot be "carried over." You may schedule your make-up as soon as you know you are going to miss a class. We often see an end-of-semester rush, so try to schedule your make-ups as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

To schedule a make-up class, click here. If you know you will not be attending a previously scheduled make-up class, please cancel it so the spot becomes available for another family. If you have registered for a make-up class that you cannot attend and you do not call to cancel before 8:00 a.m. the morning of, this will count as a make-up for you and your child.

Talking in class

It is very important for the children to realize that we are here to experience music. If you talk rather than sing, the children will think that talking is an acceptable behavior when actually it is VERY distracting to everyone and it is especially difficult for your teacher to sing over the talking and for your child to hear your singing voice. This is a time to make music and focus on singing.

Class Cancellations

Holiday closures will be announced during class and Shrooble reminders will be sent out as well. Classes may be cancelled due to inclement weather, teacher illness, and for other extraordinary circumstances. In the case of inclement weather, we will also send out an email. Should your class be cancelled because of teacher illness or for some other extraordinary circumstances, you will be notified by phone. Cancelled classes will be made up at the end of the session.

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. Sanitizing wipes are available in class, and we ask caregivers to clean instruments after they have been mouthed.

If you or your child is sick, please stay home from class and schedule a make-up.

Cell Phones

Please turn off cell phones ringers (vibrate is acceptable) during class time. Cell phone use during class time is not permitted. In case of emergencies, please step out of the classroom to accept the call. Please do not text friends and family during class time.

Siblings and Other Guests

Parents, grandparents, and caregivers are welcome to attend class at any time. 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 email us before 8:00 am to arrange this. Visitation spots are provided on a first come, first served basis and are not always available.
