Leisa's Music Place Registration Policy
Although you may join our classes at any time, please register early as class sizes are limited. Registering at least three weeks before the semester begins also ensures that your At Home materials will be available for collection at your first class. If you enrol after the semster begins, tuition can be pro-rated accordingly.
Your completed and signed enrolment form, accompanied by the materials/holding deposit, reserves your place in a particular class. You will receive confirmation of enrolment by telephone, email or mail. If in the event the class you have chosen is full, we will call you to discuss other alternatives.
The remaining tuition fee will be invoiced at the beginning of the term or semester in week one. Alternatively, if you choose a payment plan, instalments will be deducted weekly, fortnightly or monthly at your request.
Payment can be made online using Paypal or Direct Deposit. Cash or cheques can be paid either in the studio, at home at my address; 8 Diosma Drive, Highfields or by mail.
Twin, Triplet and Second Child Discounts
Leisa's Music Place offers a 5% sibling discount on tuition fees. Home material costs are deducted if they have been previously purchased.
Tuition refunds or credit towards future classes may be given if there are extenuating circumstances requiring withdrawal from class. All refund requests will be considered on an individual basis. Home materials are not able to be refunded once received.
Choosing a Program
The age recommendations for the Kindermusik programs have been carefully chosen to best group children in an age and developmentally appropriate way. Therefore, it is important that your child be at least the minimum age by the start of the program in which you are enrolling. Please note that these ages are guidelines only and each child is assessed individually to determine where they would be best suited.
Information and Policies
Making the Most of Kindermusik Classes
Plan to arrive about 5 – 10 minutes early for class. Arriving a little before class provides time for your child to settle in to the musical environment as they prepare to enjoy exploring instruments, reading books, or listening to music.
We do request that toys, drinks and dummies be kept out of sight, and that snacks be finished prior to class. Be sure to dress comfortably and remove shoes before sitting down to join the class.
During the class, the most important thing you can do for your child is to be an active and patient role model. It is not uncommon for a child to attend several classes before feeling comfortable in class. Don't be discouraged – what a child is absorbing in class is often evidenced in the home environment rather than in a certain level of participation in class.
The understanding and consistency of the parent or caregiver in class and at home are key to facilitating musical learning and growth.
You and your child will benefit enormously from the Kindermusik experience, especially if you make active use of your At Home Materials. Frequent reinforcement at home through the week makes all the difference in a child's comfort and participation in the classroom.
Classes will be made up in the event of teacher illness. I will notify you of cancellation and the scheduled make up date. We are happy to allow students who miss a class to make up that class. Simply call in advance to schedule another time. After enrolling in a specific class, you are welcome to attend extra classes in a week depending on class enrolments. Contact in advance to ensure a space is available is necessary.
Public Holidays and Pupil Free DaysLeisa's Music Place does not hold any classes on Public Holidays but may teach on Pupil Free days.
Grandparents and Visiting Others
Grandparents, Mums, Dads, etc. that don't usually attend class are welcome to come into the classroom at any time. We welcome family members into the classroom as it enhances the Kindermusik experience.
