FAQ for group classes at Music Works Magic

Can I try a class first?

We do offer the first class as a trial, without the need to commit to signing up and paying for the term. Cost is $20 for a trial. We do understand that Music Works Magic is a new experience for a child. The parent evaluates our program. We are happy to answer all your questions. It often takes at least 3 lessons to allow your child the time to settle in and make friends. Just as you wouldn't expect your child to swim on their first swimming lesson, we don't expect them to fully participate in their first Music Works Magic session! Every child learns differently. Some sit and absorb watching, others join in right away, others need to explore the room. We understand children and their needs. No-one is judging you or your child. When they are ready and comfortable they will all join in. children need repetition to become familiar with the music we sing. Each week we will repeat some of what was sung the weeik before but often with a slight difference in the presentation.

There is new material presented each week but we are not their to entertain we want everybody joining in. We ask all parents to join in...sing together (no solos) and help create a singing dancing community. Together we will immerse the chilodren in music. Children learn music best through song, play and dance.

I have older/younger children too. Can they come to class?

Yes, we welcome older/younger siblings of the children registered for class. All we ask is that if they are joining in as much as their paid-for sibling, you then pay for the additional child.

Ideally, children of differing ages should be registered in the individual age-specific class to get the most out of the classes. However, we recognise that this is not always possible so please ask us about which age group might be the most suitable if you are bringing children of different ages.

What do I need to bring/wear to class?

Please ensure you and your child/ren are comfortably dressed as the classes require some sitting down/getting up and moving around.

We find that drinks and snacks are not needed for the children during the 40 minute classes. No food may be consumed in our studio.

What happens when my child is old enough up a class?

We usually move children up to the next age-specific class at the end of the term after their birthday. You will be able to state your preferences for class time and venue and we will do our best to accommodate your needs. Do bear in mind that the class age groups are just a guide and a less confident child may benefit from staying in their familiar class for a little longer. Equally, a very confident child may be moved up early if they need the extra stimulation of an older age group class.

Can I pay for individual classes?

We cannot offer a "pay per class" option as Music Works Magic is a structured activity with limited class numbers. To enable each child to get the most from the class it is necessary to have small, consistent groups each term. We provide a planned program over the course of a term. We regret that there is a strict non refund policy.

What if we miss classes due to illness?

Classes may be made up within a term. Simply call and let us know you won't be in and then call and let us know when you wish to do your make up class.

In extenuating circumstances we will allow them to be made up the following term with full term payment only.
