Family Music Class Policies

Music on the Move (MotM)
Online scheduling

Join us for 45 minutes of music and play while we explore songs, instruments, games, rhythms, chants, movement, sign language, and a variety of musical styles.

Registration, Drop-In’s, and Reserving Seats

New students, please fill out the New Student Registration before class.

Space is limited in the classroom, and we want everyone to be comfortable! Please reserve your seat using Schedulicity, or call/text Lisa at 319.849.8288. We understand that life with a little one can be unpredictable. If you are unable to register, please drop in and join us! If all seats are reserved, we’ll let you know that you may need to be on ‘standby’.  Feel free to call Lisa at 319.849.8288 before you get out of the car. 🙂 

Payments

MOTM accepts payment by cash, check, credit card, or PayPal. Fees will apply for checks returned due to insufficient funds. 

Reserving with Schedulicity holds a seat for you regardless of your attendance. Please cancel at least 24 hours in advance to be eligible for a refund or credit. Space in the classroom is limited. Regretfully, we cannot offer refunds with less than 24 hours notice because we are unable to re-book your seat in class. 

Illness Policy

We all want to keep our children healthy! Please keep your child home if he or she has experienced any of the following symptoms within the last 24 hours: vomiting, diarrhea, fever, contagious rashes, or contagious eye infections. We do understand that some symptoms such as residual coughs, runny noses and non-contagious rashes are a regular part of life with children. Please use your best judgment. If your child is visibly ill, chances are he or she is not feeling well enough to participate in a highly stimulating activity such as music.

Weather Cancellations

In the event of inclement or severe weather, Music on the Move will follow the Cedar Rapids School District.  If classes are delayed or cancelled there will be no music class.  If weather is questionable, please watch Facebook, Twitter, and schedulicity for updates.  If you have signed up for a class that is canceled, you will receive an email. We will also make every attempt to contact via text message if class is cancelled unexpectedly.

Coming Late

If you are running late, please don’t worry. We’ve all been there! Whether you make it in time for the “Hello Song” or just in time for “Goodbye”, we would love to see you. Do keep in mind that, for some children, the “Hello Song” is an important ritual and missing it can be upsetting. If you think you might miss it, you may consider singing it in the car!

Cameras and Video

Our classes are very fun and exciting and an experience we hope you will cherish for a lifetime. You are welcome to capture this experience on film provided that your child is not left unattended during class, and you are not disrupting the class. In addition, please be very careful to refrain from publicly posting (including social media sites) any photos of children that are not your own unless you receive written consent from their parent in advance. Finally, just a reminder that our classes are designed to be held in a non-performance environment, we don’t want others to feel self-conscious about their own musical ability. It would be inappropriate to place a video of class (whether or not you feel the coverage is limited to your child) on a publicly available website (including social media sites that may limit access to “Friends” or other selected individuals).

Food and Drink

While food and drink are allowed in our space, we ask that you not bring them to class. They can be hugely distracting to participating children and life-threatening to children with allergies. Caregivers who need to breastfeed or bottle-feed their children during class are welcome to do so. In fact, many families choose to use lullaby time for this purpose. Please note that we lease our space and therefore, cannot guarantee that our space is peanut- wheat-, or other allergen-free.

Visitors

We are a family-oriented program and would love for as many family members as possible to participate!  However, space is limited, so please check with Lisa 319.849.8288 before arriving. 

Safety

We try to make our space as child-friendly as possible however, cannot guarantee it “childproof”. That’s where you come in! Teachers are very busy teaching during class and therefore, we depend on each child’s adult caregiver to supervise them so that classes stay safe and accidents are minimized. We ask that children use “walking feet” during class. In addition, please note that the doors are unlocked during class and we don’t want any children to escape!
