Class Policies:

Here is a list of class policies designed to keep our classes running smoothly and focused on making music!

  • Participation: In this class it is very important for the adults to participate! The children learn their attitudes and motivations from you, and you can help them become enthusiastic music-makers just by enjoying the class and participating fully. You will be an excellent model regardless of your musical ability —a sense of fun is all that is required.
  • Sing, don't talk: Although we use an informal teaching method, this does not mean that we are casual. We especially ask the adults to maintain focus and avoid side conversations between class activities. This is a time to listen, for often a child will spontaneously sing into the silence. Talking will only distract your child from the musical experience we are so carefully creating.
  • Cell Phones: Please refrain from using your cell phone during class. Occasional pictures are of course great (especially when you tag #littletotsmusictogether) but no texting and if you must take a call, please step outside. 
  • Your Child: Children have the amazing ability to teach themselves through play, and even the most well-meaning adult can disrupt that process by giving too much direction. Allow your child to experience the class in his or her own unique way… whether it’s by moving constantly, sitting and staring, tasting the instruments rather than playing them, etc. We know from working with hundreds of children over the years that each child is busily processing the musical information, even if it is not apparent during class activities. Trust this process, relax, and let your child be, and you will begin to see new musical behaviors emerging as the semester progresses.
  • Timeliness: Class begins and ends on time, and it is important for you to be prompt. It is often difficult for a child to enter a class already in session. Please make a point to be here for the Hello Song, so your child feels properly welcomed.
  • Toys, Food and Drink: We prefer to keep our 45 minutes together as musical as possible. We request that you leave toys at home so your child can focus on the class. Please feel comfortable to nurse or bottle feed your baby in class, but we ask that you keep food for older children outside of the classroom. Feel free to feed your child before or after class outside of the space where class will be held.  We need to be courteous to the locations where we hold classes and want their space to be free of crumbs.  In addition, due to the large number of peanut allergies in young children, please do not bring any foods containing peanuts to class. Drinks can be kept in your bag for a "quick sip" if necessary. 
  • Guests: There is never a charge for visiting adults! Unregistered siblings or visiting children may accompany your registered child once free of charge; thereafter there is a $15 guest fee. Please contact us prior to bringing another child to class. Due to the class size restrictions, we can only allow other children if we know another registered child will be absent on that date.
  • Refund and Credit: When a class time is canceled due to insufficient enrollment or other center-related reasons, tuition fees will be refunded in full. If a family member withdraws from class before the class begins, Little Tots Music Together will refund the tuition amount in full. After the first week of class, our policy is no fees will be refunded if a child withdraws.
  • What if I start classes after the semester begins? Little Tots Music Together does not prorate for classes missed due to late registration. However, we have two makeups available per semester, so any missed classes may be made up during the semester.
  • Photo and Video Agreement: I hereby give permission to Little Tots Music Together to take photographs and video recordings of my child, me or both of us together and use them in printed or video formats for advertising and educational purposes. 
  • Inclement Weather: Please check our website and Facebook page for class closures. We will no longer follow LCPS as our circumstances are very different. (No kiddos standing outside for a bus - only warm mini vans.) Please use caution in inclement weather and if you are unable to make it you can sign up for a make-up class online
