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 tell us you need to pause or withdraw. (Ongoing membership does not apply to Playdates.)
Secure Automated Monthly Payments Our automated payment system is easy and hassle-free for all of us. After you register, we will send you an email with instructions to set up your password, log into your student portal, and click on the bottom of the large green box to pay for your first month. Thereafter your membership fee will be automatically charged to your card on the seventh day of each month until you pause or withdraw. Our online system is secure and does not display your card number beyond the last four digits.
Attendance Your child will gain the most benefit with regular attendance. Each class is designed to build on the activities and skills from the previous week. Being at every class also 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, and especially if he or she is running a fever, you should stay home that day. For any absence you will receive a make-up credit to use for a make-up class if you notify us before 9:00 am on the day you miss class. Log into your student portal. The big blue box should list your next class with the option to cancel attendance. If you need to cancel a later class, go to the “Calendar” page, find the class and click on it, and you will see the option to cancel attendance.
Easy Make-ups You may use your make-up credit to attend any class* on the Kindermusik Schedule that is appropriate for your child’s age. Notify us at email@example.com or text to 541-583-0123 24 hours in advance of the day and time you wish to attend.
*If you choose a Playdate as your make-up, there is a $5 charge to cover the instrument and CD or music download card your child will receive at the Playdate.
Simple Schedule Changes We are happy to accommodate requests for a change in your class time if 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.
Private Lessons: Two Makeups Per Semester Regular attendance is critical to your child’s success. If you must miss a lesson due to illness or other emergency, your membership includes two makeups per semester, providing we receive notification of your absence before 9:00 that day via your online student portal. If you need help learning to use the student portal, your teacher will be happy to assist you. Schedule the makeup at your next lesson with your teacher. Semesters: September-January, February-June, July-August.
Piano Classes: Request to Receive Assignments Regular attendance is especially important in a piano class because the rest of the class moves on to new concepts and skills each week. Make-ups are not possible with music classes and no refunds are given, but please do notify us of the absence by 9:00 a.m. that day via your online student portal. In the “Notes” section, include a request to receive the class assignments so your child can be prepared for the next class. If you need help learning to use the student portal, your teacher will be happy to assist you.
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. If a teacher must cancel a class or lesson due to illness or any other reason, you will be contacted and a make-up class arranged.
Pause When You Need To: Kindermusik Ages 0-5 and Private Lessons only** If you are traveling or another emergency arises and you must miss a lot of classes, 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 will still be charged and a credit will be placed on your account to be used for future classes.
**Because Kindermusik for the Young Child and Piano Classes build on what is introduced each week, consistent attendance is critical for your child to be successful. Therefore, there is no option to pause in these classes.
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 for the current month will still be charged and a credit for unused classes will be placed on your account which may be used for future classes or lessons.
***Materials costs for Kindermusik for the Young Child are spread out over each 4-month semester. For that reason, if you withdraw, your account will be charged for the remaining cost of the materials for that semester.
