• Lesson plans will be adjusted based on new COVID protocols.
• Maximum size for each class will be no more than six.
• Face shield or clear mask shield is mandatory for teacher. Masks are not mandatory for children of this age group.
• There is no longer free play in order to avoid sharing instruments and toys.

• Signs and other visual markers on the floor will be used to help children visually maintain physical distance.
• Children shall remain in circle for movements and one child moves at a time while maintaining a physical distance.
• Some parents (Mini Musicians level 1's for sure) MAY be asked to sit in the class (with masks) for a minimum of one month to help children maintain physical distancing.
* Outdoor clothing and bags are not allowed in the room.
• If your child is sick he/she will not be allowed in the school. please notify us asap. Unfortunately no make up lesson can be provided.
• If the government shuts business down due to a second wave we will move all lessons online immediately. With 6 students this CAN be achieved but with the help of the parent who must take part in each class to guide their child.
• If Sama is sick she will conduct online lessons that day - zoom needs to be set up on everyone's laptops and ready to go if this occurs please! We can help you do this but we must do it in advance before lessons begin. Please download Zoom in preparation.

• Parents will be signing a waiver form (ABOVE) before lessons begin that states an understanding of COVID risks.
Please be aware that if there is another mandatory government shut down we will be putting classes online and there will be no refunds or credits - no exceptions can be made to this rule.
Our COVID protocols have been emailed to you for your reference.
Once you have registered for our program there are no refunds. There are no credits for missed lessons nor can any missed lessons be "tacked on to the end of a term" nor can they be carried over to the next term. This program is a commitment and spaces are very limited, therefore your continued commitment is essential to making it a successful learning experience for the children.
This is very rare but from time to time your teacher may have to cancel due to extreme circumstances, or, because they are performing musicians, they may need to leave town to perform a gig. It is one of our mandates that our teachers be allowed to forgo their teaching for performance opportunities because this is what being a musician is all about for them. This is what makes our teachers so amazing, is that they are performing musicians and this is only a benefit for our students. If this happens we first try to find a competent substitute teacher and if no one is available we will reschedule your lessons to another day and time. Orff Certified Instructors are very busy and very difficult to find, therefore we will most likely be rescheduling lessons if this needs to occur.
Addison Music Learning Centre reserves the right to utilise videos and pictures of students engaging in our student spotlights, recitals, student goals program, teacher Wall of Fame, and/or any other testimonials and/or student incentive programs. At no time whatsoever will we use last names of students or reveal personal information that they have not given to us in the course of an interview or a testimonial. (If we are given permission to use last names in a testimonial however, we would appreciate that to add authenticity) All videos and pictures utilised will be highly complimentary and tasteful.
You will be charged $25 for any NSF cheques. If we continue to try to collect tuition feels 2 to 3 weeks after a program has begun we will have to start charging a late fee of 10% per week.
Please avoid bringing the student to a lesson if they are ill. Our Orff teacher instructs at programs all over the GTA and her livelihood depends on being healthy.
