Please Note:  No refunds or credits will be issued after class start date.

Make-up Classes
Two make-up classes are available each semester for each registered child. Make-ups must be scheduled during the current semester and do not carry over into the next semester. Your make-up class may be at any location and time in the current semester schedule (see the CALENDAR tab).  Please email your make-up requests to email@valley-musictogether.com or call 484-330-6723. Refunds cannot be given for missed classes.

Inclement Weather
In the case of inclement weather, please refer to the NEWS section on our website home page (valleymusictogether.org). The announcement to cancel class will be posted on the website homepage by 8:30AM on the morning of class.  We do not follow the delays/cancellations of any particular school district.  Older siblings are welcome to attend class with you if school has been cancelled for the day.  Cancelled Music Together classes will be rescheduled for later in the session.

Class Cancellations
If need, classes with low enrollment may be combined or cancelled with advanced notice.  Families enrolled in a cancelled class will have the option to join another class, receive credit toward a future semester, or be issued a refund.

If a single class is cancelled due to weather, teacher illness, or for other extraordinary circumstances, you will be notified by email or phone, and a notice will be posted on the website at valleymusictogether.org. The cancelled class will be rescheduled for later in the session.

Siblings and Guests
Parents, grandparents, and adult caregivers are always welcome to attend class – no need to ask. Involving the whole family in music-making at home is extremely valuable to your child’s music development, and attending class encourages family members to join in. If you would like to bring another guest (such as an older sibling who may be home from school, other family members, or house guests), please notify the director or your teacher.

Health Policy
The health of all participants is important to us, so we take measures to ensure the cleanliness of our classroom and limit exposure to germs. Sanitizing wipes are available in class, and we ask caregivers to clean instruments after they have been mouthed. Instruments are cleaned regularly with a child-safe cleaning solution. If you or your child is sick, please stay home from class and schedule a make-up.

Cell Phones
Please set your cell phone to silent/vibrate during class time. If it is absolutely necessary to make or receive a call, please step out into the hallway. Occasional photos may be taken during a play along,  but all other photos should be taken before or after class.  Your teacher will happily help you “stage” a photo with the props from class that day.    Respect the privacy of other families. Do not post pictures that include other children or adults.

Drinks and Snacks
Breastfeeding and bottles are welcome. Please limit all other drinks and snacks to before or after class.
