Our Policies – Easy and Convenient
Register at Any Time Enroll via our secure online Registration Form at anytime. We’ll gladly pro-rate your membership fee if you join mid-way through the month.
Membership When you enroll in private lessons or an ongoing class, we welcome you as a Music4Kids member. Your membership remains in effect until you inform us in writing that you need to pause or withdraw. (Ongoing membership does not apply to Playdates.)
Secure Automated Monthly Payments Our secure automated payment system is easy and hassle-free for all of us. After you register, you will receive an email with instructions to log into your account online and pay your first invoice with a credit or debit card. Thereafter your membership fee will be automatically charged to your card on the 1st DAY of each month.
Communication Most of our communication with you will be by email. We also use texting, including REMIND, a service that allows us to text a group all at once, for announcements that affect everyone. We will add you to our Remind account, but you can also add yourself. If your class is on a Tuesday, text @m4ktues to the number 81010; if your class is on Wednesday, text @m4kwed to the number 81010.
Kindermusik at Home You will receive monthly online home activities – be sure to log in!. We also provide Kindermusik students with a monthly or semester CD, so your child can learn the songs and be able to sing them in class.
Attendance Your child will gain the most benefit with regular attendance. For Kindermusik students, being at every class allows your child to become familiar with the routines of the class and create relationships with Kindermusik friends.
Illness and Other Absences If your child is ill you should stay home that day. Please notify us by canceling your attendance in your student portal before 9:00 am on the day you miss class.
Easy Make-ups Kindermusik students Level 1-4 receive a make-up credit if you notify us by 9:00 am in your student portal. Use your make-up credit by logging into your student portal, click on “Calendar”, then select an age appropriate class you want to attend, and click on “Register”. You may choose a Playdate as your make-up; however, there is a $5 charge to pay for the take-home instrument and CD.
Make-ups are not available for Level 5 or other classes since there are no duplicate classes. One missed private lesson may be made up per semester if the teacher’s schedule permits.
Simple Schedule Changes We are happy to accommodate requests for a change in your class time if a spot in another age appropriate class is available. Children who are eligible to move up to the next Kindermusik level will be invited to do so at the appropriate time. Feel free to discuss this with your teacher if you would like to request a change of class for any reason.
Class Cancellations: If Grants Pass District 7 schools are closing due to inclement weather, classes and lessons will be canceled and a make-up class arranged or a credit issued.
Pause When You Need To: Kindermusik Levels 1-4 only* If you are traveling or another emergency arises, you may pause your enrollment in future months for up to two months and return to class within that time without paying another registration fee. Simply inform your teacher in writing before the first of the month (a Pause Request Form is available from your teacher). If the request is received after the 1st of the month, tuition for the current month may still be charged and a credit placed on your account to be used for future classes.
* Kindermusik Level 5 and the Piano PLUS classes build on what is introduced each week, so consistent attendance is critical for your child to be successful and pauses are not allowed.
No Hassle Withdrawal** If you must cancel your membership, simply inform your teacher in writing before the first of the month (a Withdrawal Form is available from your teacher). If the written notice is received after the 1st of the month, tuition may still be charged, and a credit placed on your account to be used for future classes or lessons.
**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.

Release of Liability I release any and all rights and claims for damages against Music4Kids or Great Northwest Music and its staff in the unlikely event of injury sustained by myself or my child(ren).

I have read and agree to the Release of Liability and all policies on both sides of this page.
