Class Policies

Social Distancing

In-person class sizes are limited to allow for proper social distancing and safe gathering following all state and local guidelines. We can only allow one grown up per registered child. (every person counts toward our capacity)  Mask policies are set by the venue and are generally required for adults but not children. Please see the individual class pages for specific info. You are welcome (and encouraged) to bring your own kids instruments, shakers and noisemakers.

Expectations for grown-ups

We love to make music with your children, but we need your help! We need you as parents and caregivers to be your children’s role models. If they see you bopping along, singing, dancing and playing instruments, they’ll want to do the same. If they see you chatting on a cellphone or to your neighbor, they won’t understand how important it is to participate. The more that you put into our classes, the more you and your child will get out of them. We are definitely not the “sit back and let us entertain your child” kind of place. And just a reminder, grown ups are responsible for the safety of their children during our classes. We also ask that there be absolutely no snacking during class. If your child must have a snack, please step out of class while they eat and return when they are finished. Snacking becomes a distraction for your child and the other children in the room, plus we never know who has allergies!

Makeups

Each family is permitted two makeup classes per semester. A makeup must be scheduled with the teacher and the exact time will be dependent upon space available.

Refunds

Tuition fees are fully refundable before the first class of the semester begins. 50% of tuition fees will be refunded if cancellation occurs within the first two weeks of the semester. No refunds will be issued after two weeks.

Visitor policy

Due to class size limits we are unable to accommodate visitors at this time. Only registered class participants and one guardian may attend class. Babies under 6 months may always attend with an older registered sibling at no charge.
