FAQ

What makes Music Together® different? Research. Music Together was first offered to the public in 1987 and pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally appropriate early childhood music curriculum. Today classes are offered all over the world including a lab school in Princeton, New Jersey. Ongoing research at the lab school, as well as the research of others, continually informs Music Together’s work on program content and development, varied applications of the program, and teacher training. Everything we do in class has an educational purpose. Just ask one of our highly trained teachers. Go to Research and Articles to learn more.

What kinds of programs do you offer? We have different classes for children of varying ages, from birth through seven years: Babies (under 8 months); Mixed Aged Family Class (birth - 4 yrs) and 2 levels of Rhythm Kids (4-8).

What is the tuition? Tuition varies for different locations and semesters (due to length). View our Tuition  page.

What is the refund policy? No tuition refunds are given after classes begin, although credit toward future classes may be issued in exceptional circumstances.

What is the make-up policy? Unlimited make-ups are allowed  and should be taken during the current semester.

How do I schedule a make-up? Current families can schedule make-ups online by logging in on our website. Choose ‘Makeup Scheduler’ from the Enrolled Families menu and you'll see a variety of options. The makeup schedule is usually available after the first week of classes. You can schedule makeups by day, location, teacher, etc. Once you've scheduled your makeup you will receive a confirmation email.

How long are the classes? We meet once a week for 45 minutes.

How long are the semesters? We offer three 9-week sessions in the Fall, Winter and Spring. We have a 6-week Summer session and a 4-week Holiday session.

Can I switch classes mid-semester? Consistency is important for your child’s learning, so we ask that you try to settle into your class in the first few weeks of the semester as the integral musical community is beginning to form between families and your teacher. However, we understand that especially with young children, schedules change and nap times shift, etc. Therefore, we will do our best to accommodate your schedule and find a class that works for you and your child subject to availability. Call us at 704-449-6769 or send us an email to discuss your situation.

What happens after we complete a semester? A different song collection is used each semester –there are nine different song collections- so when you register for the next session, you can look forward to expanding your repertoire with a variety of new songs and chants. The curriculum is designed so that families can continue classes for three years before revisiting a song collection. In three years, you and your child will learn over 375 songs! If you do continue in the program beyond three years (and we hope you will), your child will experience his or her first song collections in a brand new way.
