Our Policies – Easy and Convenient
Our policies may be updated periodically. Last update: July 2019
Register at Any Time Enroll via our secure online Registration Form at any time. We’ll gladly pro-rate your membership fee if you join mid-way through the month.
Membership When you register, we welcome you as a Music4Kids member. Your enrollment continues year-round, including through the summer months, until you complete our online form to tell us you need to pause or cancel your membership. (Ongoing enrollment doesn’t apply to introductory lessons, summer camps, playdates or other special events). Each monthly membership fee pays for four weeks (see the current Music4Kids calendar). For instructions on pausing or canceling your membership, visit the Parent Hub at https://music4kids.com/parent-hub/

Secure Automated Monthly Payments When you submit your online registration, your card is charged for the $25 registration fee. After we review your registration, your card will be charged for the first month membership fee (prorated to pay for lessons/classes attended that month). Thereafter your membership fee will be automatically charged to your card on the 1st day of each month. If the charge to your card is declined, you will receive notice and be asked to update your card information and send us an email when that has been done so we can process your payment. A $20 late fee will be applied to accounts that remain unpaid on the 10th of the month, so be sure to update expired cards promptly.
Communication Most communication from us will be by email, so please be sure to check your email regularly.
Missed Lessons and Classes due to Illness and Other Absences Your child will gain the most benefit with regular attendance. However, if your child is ill, please keep them home that day and cancel their attendance online prior to their class or lesson time. For instructions on canceling attendance, visit the Parent Hub at https://music4kids.com/parent-hub/.
Classes canceled by Music4Kids: If Grants Pass District 7 schools are closing due to inclement weather, classes and lessons will be canceled. If a teacher is ill, Music4Kids will cancel that teacher’s classes and lessons. In all these cases, make-ups will be arranged, or a credit will be issued.
Make-ups Make-ups are provided whenever possible for students who have canceled their attendance advance online which gives them a make-up credit on their account. No make-up credit will be issued for notification by email, text, phone call, or other form of messaging. For instructions on how to cancel your attendance so that you receive a make-up credit, and to learn how to use your make-up credit to schedule a make-up lesson or class, visit the Parent Hub at https://music4kids.com/parent-hub/.
Simple Schedule Changes We will accommodate requests for a change in lesson or class time whenever possible. For instructions on how to request to change your class or lesson time, visit the Parent Hub at https://music4kids.com/parent-hub/.
Pause When You Need To: Kindermusik Levels 1-4 and private lessons only* When you pause your enrollment, your automatic payments will be suspended and then begin automatically in the month you indicate you will return. If you return to classes or lessons within 2 months, there will be no registration fee charged when you return. If you pause for longer than 2 months, the current registration fee will be charged in the first month you return. You may use any existing make-up credits during the time of your pause. However, your same lesson time or place in class is not guaranteed when you return from a pause. For instructions on how to pause your membership, visit the Parent Hub at https://music4kids.com/parent-hub/.
* Kindermusik Level 5 and Instrument Classes build on what is introduced each week and other students will be moving ahead, so pauses are not possible.
No Hassle Withdrawal** If you must cancel your membership, simply complete and submit the online Request to Cancel Membership form by the 25th of your final month. If you submit the form after the 25th of your last month, tuition may still be charged on the first of the month, and a credit placed on your account to be used for future classes or lessons. When you cancel your membership, all makeup credits expire. Instructions for canceling your membership may also be found in the Parent Hub https://music4kids.com/parent-hub/.
**Materials costs for Kindermusik Level 5 are spread out over each 4-month semester. if you withdraw, your account will be charged for the remaining cost of the materials.
