Mixed Age Class Family

Asheville Area Music Together Policies

We are happy to welcome you to the Asheville Area Music Together family. Please take a moment to review our center policies. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our administrative specialist Christina Chandler at 828-776-5042 or at intrinsicmelodywnc@gmail.com.

Make-up Classes

If you miss your regularly scheduled Music Together class for any reason, you may schedule a make-up class. Two make-up classes are allowed each semester for each registered child, on a space-available basis. They must be taken during the current semester and cannot be "carried over." You may schedule your make-up as soon as you know you are going to miss a class. We often see an end-of-semester rush, so try to schedule your make-ups as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

To schedule a make-up class, use our online Make-Up Scheduler. You may search for a class by time, day, or location, and the scheduler will display the available options. If a given class is not displayed as an option for a make-up, it means all make-up spots for that class have been assigned; please schedule your make-up for a different class or check back later to see if a spot becomes available. If you know you will not be attending a previously scheduled make-up class, please cancel it so the spot becomes available for another family.

Siblings and Other Guests

Parents, grandparents, and caregivers are welcome to attend class at any timeā€”no need to ask. Whole family music-making at home is extremely valuable to your child's music development, and attending class occasionally helps family members feel more comfortable joining in. If you would like to bring another guest (including an older sibling who may be home from school), please call the office. Visitation spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis and cannot be guaranteed.

Health Policy

The health of all classroom participants is important to us, so we take measures to ensure the cleanliness of our classroom and limit exposure to germs. We take time to sanitize our classroom space, instruments, and materials after each class with a child-safe cleaning solution.  If you or your child is sick, please stay home from class and schedule a make-up.

Class Cancellations

Holiday closures will be announced at the beginning of each semester. There are no Holiday cancellations during the current Session.  Classes may be cancelled due to inclement weather, teacher illness, and for other extraordinary circumstances. 

Weather-related communication will happen through e-mail, as some of our families live outside of cell service areas.

The following is relevant for TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, AND FRIDAY CLASSES in Winter 2016.

We will not necessarily follow school closings.  If the roads are just plain bad, we'll e-mail you to say class is cancelled.  If there's uncertainty about roads (there often is) we will e-mail affected families to ask your thoughts on driving.  If the teacher and 2/3rds of the class can make it, we will run class.  We will make a decision and e-mail everyone at least an hour before class.  Keep an eye on your e-mail, and respond quickly so we can make the best possible decision. 

The following is always relevant for THURSDAY classes in Winter 2016. 

We will cancel Thursday classes if Asheville City Schools are totally closed for the full day.  We will run both classes even if there's an early release.  We will run both classes if there's a 1 or 2-hour delay.  We welcome older siblings if they're out of school.  

Cancelled classes will be made up at the end of the session.

Music Together Refunds and Credits

A $50 deposit is due is due at the time of registration. Please send a check or money order made out to AAMT to:

Kari Richmond    11 Talmadge St.    Asheville NC 28806

You will receive a full tuition refund if you request to drop out of class at least 7 days before your first scheduled class.  You will receive a full refund minus the $50 deposit if you request to drop out at least 3 days before your first scheduled class.

No tuition refunds are given for class withdrawals after that point.

If you withdraw after the deadline, but before your first class, you will be issued a partial credit towards tuition for a future semester. After your first class, pro-rated credits may be issued upon review of individual circumstances. 


We understand that sometimes unexpected things happen. However, please note that non-attendance does not constitute a withdrawal from class. We are not able to offer tuition refunds unless we are informed of your intent to withdraw prior to the registration deadline. 

Demo Class Refunds

There are no strings attached for attending this Demo Class, and you will not be expected to pay or register for anything.
