Our Class Policies

 

MAKEUP POLICY
If you miss your regularly scheduled Music Together® class for any reason, you may schedule a makeup class. Makeup classes can be scheduled at any location, with any teacher, in any age appropriate class, on a space-available basis. They must be taken during the current semester and cannot be "carried over". You may schedule your make-up class 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 makeups as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

To schedule a makeup class, use our online Makeup Scheduler. You may search for a class by time, day, or location, and the scheduler will display the available options. If a given class is not displayed as an option for a makeup, it means all the makeup spots for that class have been assigned; please schedule for a different class or check back later to see if a spot becomes available. If you know you will not be attending a previously scheduled makeup class, please cancel it so the spot becomes available for another family. 
 

SIBLINGS AND OTHER GUESTS
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 call the office. Visitation spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis and cannot be guaranteed.

 

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.


CLASS CANCELLATIONS

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 phone if your class in cancelled. The class cancellation may also be left on our office voicemail and posted on our website, Facebook, and Twitter accounts. Cancelled classes will be made up at the end of the session.

Our Refund Policy

 

PAYMENT AND REFUND POLICY
Full payment is due with registration. If you have to withdraw, tuition may be refunded before the first class. In the case of unusual illness or circumstances that prevent a family from participating, credit may be issued towards another Music Together semester or tuition may be refunded in part at the discretion of the director. After your first class, pro-rated credits may be issued upon review of individual circumstances.  We understand that sometimes unexpected things happen. However, please note that non-attendance does not constitute a withdrawal from class. We are able to offer tuition refunds unless we are informed of your intent to withdraw prior to the registration deadline. 

 

FAM JAM REFUND POLICY

No refunds will be given as all proceeds benefit the Marsha's Music scholarship fund. 


eGIFT CARD
Your eGIFT CARD is eternal! No expiration date, but we encourage you to use it within a year of purchase. No refunds.
