Policies

CLASS POLICIES:

Please try to be on time because we start promptly.  

Dress comfortably for moving and dancing.

Provide your child with a positive model for joyful music making, listening, and focused attention in the group.  Sing, dance, play, listen, and participate fully in every activity.  If you show enthusiasm and focus, soon your child will too.

Make music a part of family life every day.  Listen to the Family Material CDs frequently.  Sing, dance, and make music with your child at home.

Food, toys or other items from home 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.

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 it's magic!
