POLICIES & HOW-TO

POLICIES & HOW-TO

For Every Parent in our Community

Values

Our Studio operates on a set of key values: Joy. Passion. Confidence. Community. Teamwork.

We are committed to providing an excellent musical and customer experience for our families using these values.

Getting Started

Students can enroll at anytime using our online system or by phone. We prorate tuition for a given month based on when you enroll.

Every student – Kindermusik or Music Artistry – should expect a 5-6 week transition to learn the rituals and routines of your class or lesson experience.

Resources for Home

Every Kindermusik family receives resources for home including a Home CD and Instrument or Movement prop in the fall and spring.  Babies, Toddlers, and Preschoolers will enjoy the Kindermusik@Home resources that accompany each album featured in class. Login to http://my.Kindermusik.com using your email address to enjoy. The Kindermusik Young Child classes will receive a comprehensive set of materials each semester.

Music Artistry students receive a binder with an assignment notebook when they first register for our program. The teacher will use this resource as a communication tool about practice assignments, performance opportunities, and goal setting.

Makeup Classes

We have a generous makeup policy inviting Kindermusik families to schedule a makeup for any and all missed classes during the year using our convenient online system. No refunds or discounts will be given for missed classes or lessons. Lesson families are invited to request a makeup lesson during the first week of January for a missed fall lesson or the last week of May for a missed spring lesson.

UnenrollmentIf you need to discontinue your enrollment, we require written notice prior to the 1st of the new month to avoid incurring charges for the new month. Email our office by the last day of the month. A reply from our office is confirmation that you have successfully “unenrolled”

Payments

Tuition payments are monthly by credit card. All enrolled families will be charged a payment on the 1st of each month. NO refund will be given for families who cancel enrollment after the 1st of the month.

Safety

Illness – If your child or student is sick, we invite you to stay home this week to protect the other children and families in the class or your lesson teacher.  Enjoy listening to music at home this week while resting up!

Makeup Classes or Lessons

For the safety of our children, please do schedule a Kindermusik makeup class using our online system in order to maintain class sizes that are conducive to learning.

For our Music Artistry students, you have the option of requesting 1 makeup lesson at the end of the fall and 1 makeup lesson at the end of the spring for any and all lessons missed during those times.

Non-Enrolled Siblings in Kindermusik

Due to limited class sizes and the delicacy of the younger class settings, baby classes (0 to 2 yrs) and toddler classes (2’s & 3’s) can only accommodate non-enrolled siblings when the sibling is young enough to stay contented in a car carrier. GREAT NEWS!! If you are registered for Laugh & Learn or Young Child, siblings are invited to join us at the end of class for Sharing Time.

Inclement Weather Policy

Kathy’s Music will make our own decisions related to weather cancellations. Starting Fall 2015 – we will NO LONGER follow school district schedules. We primarily use Facebook and email to keep our families notified of changes due to Inclement Weather. NOTE: Starting Fall 2015 – if Kindermusik classes are cancelled due to weather, then families are invited to sign up for a makeup class online. We will not be making up those weather-related cancelled Kindermusik classes. Music Artistry Lessons will be madeup with an option to do a Group Lesson based on the teacher’s discretion.
