Our Policies – Easy and Convenient
Our policies may be updated periodically. Last update: September 14, 2018.
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 enroll in private lessons or an ongoing class, we welcome you as a Music4Kids member. Your membership remains in effect until you complete our online Request to Pause or Request to Cancel Membership form. (Ongoing membership does not apply to Playdates or Camps.)
Secure Automated Monthly Payments Our secure automated payment system is easy and hassle-free for everyone. When you enroll, you provide your debit or credit card information on the secure online registration form and your card is charged for the $20 registration fee. After we review your registration, your card is charged for the first month (or partial month) membership fee. Thereafter your membership fee will be automatically charged to your card on the 1st day of each month.
Private Lesson Books and Materials If your teacher purchases books or materials for you, these will be charged to your card on the first of the following month.
Communication Most of our communication with you will be by email, so please be sure to check your email regularly.
Kindermusik Online To take full advantage of Kindermusik, log in at My.Kindermusik.com often to view the home activities related to our monthly theme which are included with your membership.
Attendance Your child will gain the most benefit with regular attendance. For private and group lessons, regular attendance is essential to progress in learning to play. 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, please keep them home that day. Notify us by logging into your Student Portal and canceling your attendance.
Kindermusik: To receive a make-up credit, Kindermusik families (Foundations through Level 4) must cancel attendance via your Student Portal at least 2 hours before class. To schedule a make-up class using your make-up credit simply log into your Student Portal, click on “Calendar”, select an age appropriate class you want to attend, and click on “Register”. Make-ups are not available for Level 5 since there are no duplicate classes. Make-up classes may be available during our make-up weeks – see the Music4Kids calendar for more information. Make-up credits may also be used to partially pay for a Playdate- a make-up credit provides a discount of $7.50 off the cost of a Playdate.
Instrument Classes: Make-ups are not available for instrument classes. You may, however, email the teacher to ask for missed assignments so the student can be prepared for the next class.
Private Lessons: One missed private lesson may be made up per quarter if you log into your student portal and cancel your lesson at least 2 hours before your lesson time. Scheduling make-ups is the responsibility of the parent. Make-ups must be scheduled with the teacher at the following lesson for a time during one of our make-up weeks.
Simple Schedule Changes We will accommodate requests for a change in lesson or class time whenever possible. 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 possible changes with your teacher at any time.
Class and lesson 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. If a teacher is ill or must cancel a class or lesson for any reason, a make-up will be arranged or a credit issued.
Pause When You Need To: Kindermusik Levels 1-4 and private lessons 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 classes or lessons within that time without paying another registration fee. However, your same lesson time or place in class is not guaranteed when you return.
To pause your enrollment, simply complete the online Request to Pause form by the 25th of the month before you plan to pause. If you submit the form after the 25th of the month prior, tuition may still be charged on the 1st of the month and a credit will be placed on your account be used for future classes.
Autopay will resume automatically and your card will be charged on the 1st of the month in which you have indicated on the pause form that you will return.
* 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.
**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.
