Registration Policies for
Music Together® Mixed-Age (0-5y) classes
Like most educational/school programs, we cannot refund tuition or give credit for classes missed during a 10 week session (or a 6 week summer session); even if the absences have been frequent. Also, the entire orientation of the Music Together program is toward extending the class experience into the child’s life outside of the class by means of parent education and supporting materials, such as the recordings and songbooks and the Family Music Zone. Tuition includes these items and consequently is not “wasted” even if the classes are missed. Two makeup classes allowed per semester where possible.
If a class needs to be canceled due to teacher illness/absence or inclement weather, the session will be extended an extra week to make up the class time. You will be notified in the event of a cancellation. We follow the Cedar Rapids School district and their cancellation policy with regard to snow closures.
If the class for which you registered does not fill, you will be asked to move to your second choice day/time. If that is not possible, we will either credit you for another session or refund your tuition.
We offer many opportunities for you and your family to participate in a class setting before registering; therefore we do not give tuition refunds once the session has begun.
SIBLINGS & VISITORS
Younger or Older Siblings in Mixed-Age classes: Siblings under 7 months are encouraged to come to mixed-age Music Together class with their older sibiling although infants get tremendous benefit from class, we do not charge tuition for siblings under 7 months, but space may be limited so please let us know if you will be bringing your baby. Siblings in Kindergarten and up are counted as caregivers in mixed age classes and are also not charged tuition (although we welcome them in class when space allows!).
