This includes (and is not limited to) wearing protective masks for individuals 12 and older, maintaining social distancing from other families during class, and the understanding that classes may need to resume to Zoom format if more restrictive orders are reinstated (in which case refunds are not available). Parents agree to NOT attend class if they or anyone in their immediate family has COVID or feels ill in any way.

Please refer to your welcome letter regarding items to bring to class for your safety and comfort.

Make-up Classes

 If you miss your regularly scheduled Music Together class  you may schedule a make-up class either on Zoom. Outdoor classes and Recreation Center Classes are not an options for make ups. Two make-up classes are allowed each for fall, winter, spring sessions and one make up for the summer session (with the exception of Rec Center classes). Make ups are on a space-available basis and are not necessarily guaranteed.During possible closure/delays due to COVID-19/Coronavirus, we will do our best to offer additional and or extended make ups. Ideally please schedule your make up class within the week or following week of the missed class. When participating in a make up class, please only bring the enrolled child (unless prior permission for sibling as space allows). You can also schedule in advance if you know you will be out of town. If you know you will be missing a class but are unable to schedule a make up, please mark yourself as "absent" on the roster by using the make up scheduler.This enables us to open up a spot for someone else who might need to do a make up class. Due to Recreation Center Policies, make up classes are not available for Windsor or Fort Collins Recreation Center participants.

WE ARE UNABLE TO OFFER MAKE UP CLASSES FOR SNOW DAYS OR OTHER UNFORSEEN ACTS OF NATURE. ADDITIONALLY WE DO NOT OFFER REFUNDS FOR  HEALTH RELATED ISSUES OR OTHER CLOSURE RELATED INCIDENCES THAT ARE BEYOND OUR CONTROL. IN THIS INSTANCE WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO OFFER EXTRA MAKE UP CLASSES. 

To schedule a make-up class, use our online Make-Up Scheduler. You'll need to be logged in with your account info to access the make up scheduler.  You may search for a class by time, day, or location, and the scheduler will display the available options. If a given class is not displayed as an option for a make-up, it means all make-up spots for that class have been assigned; please schedule your make-up for a different class or check back later to see if a spot becomes available. If you know you will not be attending a previously scheduled make-up class, please cancel it so the spot becomes available for another family.


Children with Special Needs

We welcome children with special needs into our classes. We recognize the important role that music plays in the health, well-being and development of all children. We have successfully integrated children with language/learning deficits, autism, physical/emotional challenges, etc. into our classes. We highly recommend a visit to one of our free preview classes to be sure we are a good fit for your child prior to enrollment.  In some instances the particular need of your child may be beyond the scope of what we are able to accommodate in a mixed age class. In that instance, we will do our best to connect you with a Music Together Within Therapy provider who may be able to provide more individualized services.

Classroom Policies (in person classes)

CLASSROOM SAFETY - We provide ample opportunity for movement and physical expression. However, we do not allow continual running, throwing of instruments or other behaviors that jeopardize the safety and well being of participants. We encourage ways for families to redirect unsafe behavior into musical, child friendly interaction. We reserve the right to ask a family to change or withdraw from class if classroom safety and well being is compromised.

 FOOD/SNACKS:Please only water in tightly closed containers in our teaching spaces. Since our focus is on the music during the 45 minute class, we ask parents to try to provide meals/snacks before/after class. Thank you!! 

 

 TECHNOLOGY/VIDEOTAPING/PICTURES:In our effort to have a fun, focused musical environment, we ask that families please refrain from using technology, mobile devices, cameras, etc during class. Our teachers are happy to take pictures with your children before or after class - thank you!

 

TOYS:Best to leave toys at home unless it is something that your child absolutely cannot part with. Toys can be a distraction not only for your child but for other children in the class. We provide ample opportunity for instrument play and hope that children can explore these instruments freely.

HONORING YOUR CHILD'S NEEDS: Children love the "Hello Song"! Please come a few minutes early to settle in. If your child becomes fussy and needs a break during class, please feel free to take a few moments outside of class and then come back! This both honors your child's needs and the classroom flow
