Join our wonderful community of music making families for 45 minutes each week. We’ll be singing, dancing, chanting, drumming, jamming, playing, improvising, exploring and experimenting through an eclectic mix of family-style music including folk, jazz, world, blues and classical.

Money Back Guarantee and Refund Policy

If after the first class you are not fully satisfied, let us know *immediately (*must be the same day) at admin@therhthmtree.com.au or call 0423 466 339 and we will cancel your monthly enrolment and monthly fees without question. Please note – *failure to contact us on that day will mean fees paid are not-refundable. Upfront  Yearly fears are non-refundable. Collected songbooks/CD cannot be refunded/returned and will be charged at $65 per Curriculum set.

Although we try to accommodate unforeseen changes in schedule, after your registered first class we will not issue credits or refunds for non-emergency reasons such as nap times changing. If you do not attend the first class or do not alert us after this class, fees are liable.

Missed Classes

Tuition is provided on a month to month basis therefore there are no refunds or credits given for missed lessons.

Make-up classes

You will receive 12 make up classes per year. This equates to 1 make up class per month. 

Unlimited make up classes will have an extra monthly fee of $10, in addition to enrolment fees*

*We are temporarily providing unlimited make ups to all families without extra payment.

Make ups can be booked through your family portal using our online ‘make up scheduler’.

Cancellation of enrolment

Please give us 15 days notice if you choose to cancel your enrolment with us. This is applicable regardless of whether you have chosen to pay monthly or upfront.

Upon cancellation, an invoice or refund will be issued. This is calculated by totalling how many curriculum sets you have received and how many weeks you have been enrolled for. This fee is then deducted from the fees you have paid. This may result in a refund or a small outstanding fee.

Location and time changes

On a rare occasion, classes may be combined or cancelled based on enrollment. Refunds will be given to families who cannot accommodate the changes.

If, for any reason, there is a room or venue change, we will notify you in advance by email and send a reminder by sms.

 Mobile Phones

We like to keep our 45 minutes musical. Please note that classes are MOBILE FREE zones unless you have cleared with the teacher beforehand e.g. if waiting on a very important call. If you would like to take photos, please let your teacher know and she will be more than happy to pull out the instruments after class. Thank you for your consideration in this matter.

Food and Drink in Class

It is important to stay hydrated so we encourage the use of water bottles, breastfeeding and baby milk bottles in class. Due to cross contamination and choking hazards, we prefer any solid foods to be consumed outside our class space either before or after class. Should food be required during class, we request that you please step outside. 

 Unregistered Older Siblings

There may be times during the term when older children have a school holiday, and it is natural to want to bring them with you to class. Older siblings of registered students may visit 2 classes per semester; Please e-mail us in advance to let us know

Additional Adults

Parents, grandparents or caregivers are welcome to attend class at any time – no need to ask. Whole family music making in your home is extremely valuable to your child’s musical development, and attending class occasionally helps the other family members to join in at home.
