Policies

DISCOUNTS: 
There is a 10% discount off the second child for siblings!  Deduction will be calculated on the lowest tuition of the siblings (materials, tax, etc. excluded.).

POLICIES:
Please try to be on time. Late entrances disrupt the flow of the class and distract the other children, plus it is sometimes difficult for the late arrivee to get into the "swing of things" effectively.

Dress for “moving and dancing!”

Food, toys or other "distractions" often cause problems rather than provide comfort when brought into music class. Since another child might want your child’s drink or stuffed animal, it is often easier to leave those things at home or in the car. 

Please try to refrain from using pacifiers in class.  These dramatically affect the child's ability to participate in class verbalization and slows their learning to sing and speak the curriculae.

OBSERVATIONS:
Understand that all children learn at different rates and in different ways.  Some children will be quiet in class, others will be active.  Some children will do everything perfectly at home, but not in class.  As a parent, you know that every child is unique, so check your comparisons at the door and let the music work its magic!

CANCELLATIONS:
Occasionally it might be necessary to cancel a class, due to emergency or illness. If that occurs, I will post an announcement on this website under "Events & News."  If time allows, I will also try to call you individually or to notify you by email. I also ask that you try to let me know, via phone or email, if you will be missing a class. THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS FOR MISSED LESSONS. However, if I as instructor must cancel a class, I will offer a make-up class at a later date.

TUITION:
Tuition for all 15-week sessions are $150 per session: Tuition for a 9-week shortened semester are $100. 
Materials are purchased from the MusikGarten company and those prices will remain the same. There is also a 10% discount for siblings, calculated from the lowest tuition amount due.  Tuition is due in full at the time of the first class. You may pay by credit card, through PayPal, or you may pay Noelle Chandler directly by check or money order.

The materials fee includes materials and a small registration fee, and is non-refundable. However, if you should withdraw from the course, the following refund policy applies for tuition:

-- After the first week of classes, you may be refunded all remaining pro-rated tuition for classes not 
    attended.
-- After the second week of classes, you may be refunded 75% of the semester tuition.
-- After the third week of classes, you may be refunded 50% of the semester tuition.
-- After the fourth week of classes, you may be refunded 25% of the semester tuition.
-- After the fifth week of classes, there will be no refunding of tuition.

However, I'm quite confident you and your child will be having so much fun, you will happily look forward to returning each week!

PLEASE NOTE:  You may register and begin participating at any time during the semester.  The registration and materials fee will remain the same, but tuition will be pro-rated so you will only pay for the remainder of that semester's classes.
