Change My Enrollment
Melody Magic offers ongoing enrollment for a variety of classes and Private Lessons, and school-year enrollment for Music for Little Mozarts. This means you stay enrolled, with all of the benefits of enrollment, until you let us know you need to withdraw. You can withdraw and then start up again at any time of the year. Just be sure to submit your change before the 1st of the new month so that we can cancel your tuition charge in time.
Withdrawing from classes or lessons at Melody Magic is simple, but please consider these insights before making your decision.
Music Education Is Important: Make It a Priority
There are lots of choices of activities for your child. And limits on the wallet. We get it. But we strongly believe that a solid music education has lifelong lasting benefits. It's not just about learning music. In Kindermusik it's about developmental skills, emotional and social skills, cognitive and language skills. Lessons are about routine, goals, effort, and achievement. And ALL musical experiences are about exploring with creativity and building confidence. After all, we are building up tiny humans. That's the goal.
"It's Just a Phase"
There is truth to that statement. The teething phase. The "do it myself" phase. The "I don't want to practice" phase. But the good thing is.... phases end. They are not permanent. The best thing you can do is support your child during a phase.
Is your child seeming un-interested in the activities in Kindermusik? It's ok! They do that sometimes. We meet children at their level, in their phase. It's why they are free to walk around the room. It may annoy you, as you want your child to participate in every single activity, right? But this is about supporting them in what they need. Letting them have a bit of choice. Try doing some of the activities at home, in their own environment. Use your Kindermusik Online access. Trust us. Hang tight, they will come back around.
Are you finding that the "honeymoon phase" of private lessons is ending? If you are struggling with your child, nagging them to practice their instrument, we have a few words of wisdom. Set a regular practice time and make it part of the routine. Don't have them wait until you ask them to practice. Give them some responsibility -- it's good for them! Practice isn't always fun, but achievement is. It is good for them to work hard towards a goal. When the honeymoon phases ends, that's when routine, determination, and stick-with-it-ness pays off!
Sometimes a Change Is Needed
We know that schedules change (including nap schedules!), but don't withdraw simply because your schedule changes. If your current class or lesson time isn't working for your schedule, we can easily find a time that does.
And occasionally you may find that a switch of classes/teachers is best. All of our educators are extremely talented and trained, but each one is also unique. If you would like to try a different class/teacher, just let us know!
