Kids Music Beat – Weekly Music Groups

Term Three 2020 Terms and Conditions

Only one child can attend per booking

Please note there is no family discount for Term 3 due to restrictions on our venue space and numbers. If you would like to bring two children you are very welcome to book two spots in the same group for them to both attend with you

Make up classes cannot be guaranteed in person but we will offer the opportunity to make up a lesson at our Online Only Friday class each week

You will not be able to turn up to a class that you haven’t booked for as our venues are restricted by numbers

We are not able to refund any money for missed classes

You will need to sign a waiver at the beginning of the term that states the following:

  • You and your child are not sick when you attend groups
  • You have not travelled overseas in the last 14 days
  • You have not been in direct contact with anyone who has Covid-19

If your circumstances change during the term you will let us know immediately

You will not attend any groups if you or your child are sick

You will wash your hands prior to entering our sessions and as you leave the room

You will wait in the allocated waiting area with appropriate social distancing between you and other families before the class starts

If you would like to sit on a cushion in groups you will need to supply this from your own home as we will no longer be able to supply this from our end

There will be a slight change to session times, with sessions running for 40 minutes to allow for increased cleaning duties and regular sorting of equipment before the next class starts

Please note that we are not allowed to encourage you to socialise after classes due to social distancing rules so once the session ends we ask that you kindly refrain from socialising indoors.

Shared strumming of the guitar at the end will no longer be allowed but we can give a virtual strum with your little ones sitting in your lap and strumming in the air as we hold the guitar up

Story time will also be taken with your little person sitting on your lap

Our old shared sticker time will also not be allowed under the new compliance rules so instead we will offer a ‘sticker as you leave’ option where you are welcome to grab a sticker on your way out from a pre shown place

Our instruments will be handed out per child when we begin the class and once used you will put them back into the container that they were handed out from so that we can clean them properly after the session

Any instruments that were mouthed during the session will need to go in a separate bucket that will be shown to you at the beginning of the session

All Standard Terms and Conditions apply

Music Beat Lessons + Tuition

Terms of Attendance/Participation:

We are committed to music lessons being fun, interactive and child-centered. We work to match the teaching techniques and the teacher to each child’s learning style. Sometimes this may require us to change their lesson books, or even their teacher. We will always work with you on this to make sure you are informed and supported in this process.

EXPECTATION Learning an instrument and musical literacy is fun and it TAKES TIME.

Children need time to attain a grasp on the instrument they are learning, and to settle in with their teacher. This is why we do not offer a service less than one term block (a full term), exactly the same as swimming lessons. Without consistency your child won’t gain any confidence, nor have their curiosity in the instrument piqued after some “wins”.

Don’t expect great enthusiasm or joy after every single lesson. Sometimes, we work hard and early lessons can be a bit daunting. Come and talk to us if you have concerns but we think your child will settle in well.

PRACTICE Learning an instrument requires practice.

For younger students, most practice technique is covered in class and we will brief you on this process at the close of each lesson, or send home notes. Home practice can be short and should be fun. We will help the children develop effective practice techniques, but supervised home support is vital.

Older children are required to practice more often and with purpose to see the best learning outcomes.

Please note if you have signed up for the shorter lessons it is even more imperative that practice occurs at home between lessons as we won’t have as much time in lessons to do practice. Rather the lesson time needs to focus on revision and learning new material and techniques.

Progress (and more importantly, their pride of progress) will be hampered if children are not supported to practice at home with regular (scheduled) practice times.

Terms of Service:
It is the responsibility of the parent/carer or after school care staff to ensure your child arrives on time for their lesson, with their instrument and book and is escorted either to school, home or back to care after the lesson.

If a teacher is absent due to illness or emergency, the lesson we will offer a make-up lesson within the term. If this fails, one lesson fee will be credited to your next term account.

If a student is absent and you can provide us with 24 hours or more notice, we will do our best to find a make-up lesson time within the term. There is no guarantee of this but we will do our best.

If a student wishes to change instrument, we adhere to our term block policy and if the desire is still in play at the end of the term we will make arrangements to accommodate the change.

We will supply the music books for your child and invoice you for payment. The cost of materials is in addition to lesson fees*.

As a courtesy to our busy families, and to support the long term learning goals of your child, we hold spots for current students for the next term unless we are notified in writing of the intent to discontinue to info@musicbeat.com.au. If we do not hear from you please note Terms of Payment below for this situation.

Mid-year and end of year concerts
Students are strongly encouraged to perform in our two concerts, held in June and December each year.

Concerts provide:

  • An opportunity for the children to come together and support each other and celebrate their hard work.
  • A goal for practice and allow the students to shine.
  • The opportunity for professionals to teach them how to manage nerves, a life-skill transferable beyond music lessons.

All family and friends and welcome to the concert.

A small fee may apply to cover the cost of hall rent and insurance.**

Exams
MBLT is aligned with the Australian Music Examination Board (AMEB) exam series.

Students are supported to do exams if they wish to. This is entirely at the discretion of the student and their family.

The cost of AMEB exams is paid for by you. The website and registration process can be confusing so we will register and pay for the students on your behalf, and then invoice you for this service ***

You will be sent specific information on this if you decide to pursue AMEB exams.

Terms of Payment:
Once paid your booking stands for the length of the term. Your spot is secured.

Full term payment is to be made before 48 hours the first lesson. A spot will not be held if your account is not paid. Unpaid spots will be offered to next-in-line on the waitlist. You will receive telephone and email communication from us advising you that your spot has not been paid and settlement is required if the spot is to be retained.

Fees are only refundable under exceptional circumstances (e.g. hospitalisation, long term absence due to ongoing illness) at the discretion of MBLT.

We do not offer refunds due to change of family commitments or holidays.

*The curriculum books and learning materials supplied at our cost will be invoiced to you and payment terms are 14 days from issue.

**Any concert fees do not include any service fees, they cover the cost of the venue and insurance –

you will receive cost information before you are asked to commit to the event and payment terms are 14 days from issue.

*** we will set up your child’s exam account via our portal and pass on the cost of the exam and set up time to you in an invoice separate to your term tuition fees. You will receive cost information before you are asked to commit to examinations and payment terms are 14 days from issue.

You remain responsible for the safety of yourself and your child/ren, relinquishing Music Beat Australia of any liability.

Music Beat Therapy Services

Payment Policy

All payments are due within 14 days of being invoiced. A 10% late fee will be incurred for every week that a payment is overdue. If payment is dependent on external funding, this will be taken into account when enforcing late fees.

Cancellation/Non-Attendance Policy

Without notice or within 0-12 hrs of scheduled session – 90% full fee

Sessions cancelled 12-24 hrs before scheduled session – 50% full fee

Please make every effort to give as much notice if you cannot attend a session. This allows for the best possible use of the therapist’s time. Though these cancellation fees are enforced, it is understood that notice cannot always be given due to illness and other unforseen circumstances, so a make-up session will be organised wherever possible. A travel subsidy fee will still incur if the therapist has travelled to the location before being notified of a cancellation.
