Terms and Conditions:
Make-up Class Policy:
Cell Phone Policy: In keeping with the purpose of our music classes (to spend time with and make music with our children/family), we respectfully ask you to refrain from picture taking and non-emergency cell phone use during class time. This can be distracting to others, but it also takes precious time away from your child. In addition we want to respect the privacy of all our families. We want to create the best possible learning environment for your child and we appreciate your help in achieving this goal. If you would like to have a chance to take pictures in class, please discuss this with your teacher and a special "picture day" or "photo momment" may be prearranged. If a photographer takes pictures in class, Songbids Music will let you know in advance.
Each family is allowed one scheduled child guest or sibling per semester. A $15 guest fee will be charged for any additional child guests or siblings. All guests must be scheduled to ensure that there is room in the class, and that your guest will not create overcrowding in the classroom. Overcrowding is unpleasant and can be unsafe for the children. Adult guests are always welcome, and do not need to be scheduled in advance. Questions? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 858/412.0643
Sick Children: Please DO NOT bring your sick child to class. If you child has had a fever or a significant cough/diarrhea for 24hr please keep them home. Part of why we have a very flexible make-up policy is so your child can stay home a get better when they are ill. Please be considerate of the other families who share the music space with you.
We reserve the right to dismiss a family when, in the sole discretion of Songbirds Music, the family cannot be served with safety and with respect for the rights of other class members. Dismissal is accompanied by a pro-rated refund for the remainder of the semester less the semester's registration fee and $20 for new families.
I agree to waive Music Together® and its staff and teachers, Music Together LLC, Stage 7 School of Dance, The Alley Room, Pachis, an art studio for kids, Bill and Sid Rubin Preschool at Congregation Beth Israel, San Diego Woman's Club, School of Ballet Arts, Creative Dance Theatre, San Diego County, and the United States Government of all claim for personal injury or property damage that may arise from use of the facilities before, during and after Music Together classes. I also accept responsibility for my safety and the safety of my children at the class location before, during and after Music Together classes. I agree to abide by the regulations listed in this brochure.
Wear comfy clothes. In our classes you and your child will be sitting on the floor, dancing around the room, jumping up and down, banging on a drum, and participating in many other fun and energetic activities. Please dress comfortably. Also, please be aware that for the safety of our little ones crawling around on the floor, we ask that everyone remove their shoes before entering the classroom. Bring socks!
Hello everybody, so glad to see you! The "Hello Song" is a beloved ritual that welcomes the children at the beginning of each class. Children delight in hearing their own name in the Hello Song, so please arrive on time for class.
Shhhh! Keep non-music related chatter to a minimum. Enhance your child's experience in class by remembering to sing, sing, sing! Your active participation (regardless of what you think your musical ability is) is the key to your children learning and growing musically. Support the creation of a music-only environment while in class by not talking to your children or other adults during the 45 minutes. Since it is difficult for a young child to tune out adult conversation, please wait to socialize till after class, and instead contribute to the creation of a musical environment for the children to absorb.
Allow your child to participate at their own comfort level. Some days that might mean that your little one is "just" sitting and absorbing the musical atmosphere around them. Other days it might be wearing a tambourine as a hat, singing parts of the songs, or dancing along to the music in a corner of the classroom. As long as your child is safe to himself and others, we encourage every child to experience the class in the way that is most meaningful and developmentally appropriate to them
I give permission for photographs and videos of myself and my children to be published in print as well as online. Please contact us if you do not want your child to be photographed and/or if you do not want his/her/your picture to be used in print and online.
