When do classes start?
We typically offer classes September through May, as well as summer sessions in June and July. Currently we are offering unlimited online classes during the COVID-19 pandemic. You are welcome to join us at ANY time – no need to wait for a “first day.” Every day is a great day to join us!
How much do classes cost?
Our Kindermusik classes are $62 per month. Sibling and family discounts may apply; contact us for details. Visit our individual class pages for specific pricing information.
Tuition is prorated from the day you enroll, so you’ll never pay for classes that have already occurred.
Which class is best for my child?
The Kindermusik philosophy springs from genuine respect for each child’s individual rate of development. Class activities and at-home materials are designed to honor, support and celebrate the wonderful uniqueness of each child. Classes have overlapping age ranges to help parents accommodate their child’s own needs. Our educators have been trained to help you decide which class will be the best fit – and will also assist you in deciding when the right time may be to promote to the next class. Visit our “Which class is best” page for more information.
How do I access my Kindermusik materials?
To access your online Kindermusik materials, head over to my.kindermusik.com. If it’s your first time signing in, click on “First time logging in” and provide the e-mail address you gave us when you enrolled. New activities will be added to your account approximately every four weeks, or when we change themes in class. You have forever access to these materials, and can access them from any internet-connected device.
How do I make up a class?
Currently we are offering unlimited online classes. No need to schedule a make up class–if you can’t attend your regular class session, simply attend a different class listed in the email you receive each week.
Can I bring a visitor to class?
Of course! We love it when grandparents, aunts & uncles, and family friends join us for class. If you attend a full class or feel any uncertainty, it’s best to ask your educator in advance. If a friend of yours is interested in enrolling, please contact Kate Blythe, our Operations Manager at (816) 260-1697 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I bring a sibling to class?
To ensure the best possible learning environment for all of our families, please be considerate when deciding to bring non-enrolled siblings to class. For safety reasons, we ask that non-mobile infants are kept in a car seat, stroller, or baby-wearing device.
If a sibling is going to attend and participate regularly, please contact us to enroll them at a discounted rate.
Siblings of all ages are always welcome to attend Gathering Time (before-class connection time) and Sharing Time (the last fifteen minutes) of Level 3 and higher classes along with the parent or caregiver. We appreciate you helping any siblings remain comfortable and engaged during sharing time so that our entire class can enjoy making music together.
What is your inclement weather policy?
Classes will be made up in the event of teacher illness or inclement weather. We will follow the Shawnee Mission School District’s decision on school closings, unless we contact you otherwise. Any cancelled classes will be made up by the end of the school year. Please watch your e-mail/text messages and our Facebook page for weather-related cancellations.
Are you affiliated with the churches where you hold classes?
We are so grateful for the opportunity to rent space from St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in KCMO and Lenexa United Methodist Church in Lenexa. However, our program does not have any affiliation to the churches, religious or otherwise.
When can we start piano lessons?
We are proud to be the only Kindermusik studio in the KC metro that offers a lifetime of musical opportunities, from birth through adulthood. With that said, we get a lot of inquiries about piano lessons for young children. At InJoy Music, we offer Kindermusik classes through age seven. We offer Play-a-Story piano classes for children who are 5 and/or entering Kindergarten by September 1; and we offer Simply Music piano classes for children who are 6 and/or entering First Grade by September 1. As always, we are happy to discuss the best choice for you and your child.
May I leave the building while my child is in class?
We require a parent or adult caregiver to be an active participant in class for our Foundations and Levels 1 and 2 classes.
For Levels 3 and higher, you may leave the building shortly while your child is in class; however, please return promptly for Sharing Time (the last 15 minutes of class). Note that the doors at our KCMO location will be locked, with the exception of the 15 minutes before class starts and the 15 minutes after class begins, so another parent will have to let you back in.
How do I update my credit card information?
To update your credit card information, please give us a call at (913) 362-8209.
How do we withdraw?
Upon enrolling at InJoy Music, your spot is held for the school year (September through May). However, you may choose to un-enroll at any time by filling out a withdrawal form before the 1st of the month. Your withdrawal is not confirmed, and auto-payments may be processed, until you receive a written confirmation from us.
