ONLINE / NEW POLICIES
*Please read carefully - policies related to REFUNDS and Music Together® ONLINE are evolving due to Austin's current shelter-in-place order.
REFUNDS: As of the shelter in place order that went into effect on 3/24/2020 - no refunds be granted at this time. We have been ordered to stop holding classes in person and will hold credits for anyone who is unable or unwilling (not desiring) to continue with us online. If you wish to cancel your enrollment, you have 2 options - you can receive a credit on your account (no expiry) or transfer your enrollment to another family as a gift or donate your credit to our scholarship fund that supports needy families, essential worker families and teachers during the crisis. Again - credits will not expire and they ARE transferable. If you decide you'd like to gift your enrollment to someone who needs it or someone you wish to donate it to - please contact us - we're happy to do that.
MUSIC TOGETHER ONLINE: Music Together Maracas Collection will be offered online until we are able to get back into studio classes in person. The Maracas collection of Music Together will be offered as a course. If at any we are allowed to return to our in-person studios we will provide several in-person classes around the city and continue many of our online classes simultaneously until the end of the 20 weeks.
Online Privacy Agreement: By enrolling in the ! Spring Maracas collection you agree to usage policies for Facebook and Zoom but also agree to additional ‘no pictures/no recordings’ policy set forth by ! LLC. In registering for classes using Facebook and Zoom you are joining a public class at your own risk and you agree to be responsible for monitoring the engagement for your child and controlling your own privacy settings in all applications. Parents should never leave children our online music class. Parents are required to attend classes with your child (neither of you are required to show your video screen or share your audio feed – this is your option) However, we do expect parents to sing and dance along with your child as suggested and modeled by the teacher for the best experience. Just like in person, this is a parent/child - bonding through music making class for parents and children – together.
! does not record Zoom classes at all. If you miss a class - we encourage you to re-play our Facebook live presentations and sing and dance along with those or sign up for a live make-up class. By enrolling in Maracas class online you agree to hold ! LLC and Music Together Worldwide harmless and agree to monitor and protect your child in a way that is appropriate in any public online engagement according to usage agreements with Facebook and Zoom.
Picture taking (of the screen) and recording the zoom class in whole or part is NOT permitted. Please do not take pictures of the screen - this is a violation of our mutual privacy agreement. We know - just like in class - that it is SO adorable and we are all happy to online together but what makes our classes so special is that everyone feels safe to participate in class. If you take out your phone to take picture of the screen - you can expect everyone in class to see you and feel uncomfortable – you will be warned, and possibly removed from class.
However! JUST like in our in-person classes - we will announce special times to take pictures where everyone will know ahead of time - that it's 'picture time'!
