- 1. Class Fee: How much is the class?Our 10 week semester costs $370.00 for new families, $355.00 for returning families.
- 2. Siblings discount: Do I get a discount if I have twins or two children enroll in class?If you have 2 children enroll in class, the first child will be
$370.00 for new families and $355.00 for returning families, the additional child $295.00. If the second child is 8 months and younger, it will be free of charge (if accompanied by the older sibling.)
- 3. Make Ups: Can we do make ups, if we travel or if my child is ill?Yes, you can do 2 make ups per semester. We have a make up scheduler on our website under “schedule” “make ups”. You can sign yourself in at your convenience and if your schedule changes, you can also cancel the make up class.
Please note, make ups can not be transferred from one semester to the next.
- 4. Demo Class: Can we “demo” a class even when we missed the demos and there are no demo classes offered?Yes, you can contact us and we can arrange for you to demo our class.
- 5. Late Sign-Up: Can we join after the semester has already started?We accept registrations after we started a semester. If you are just a week or two weeks behind, you can make up the classes you missed. We can also pro rate the fee but we generally don’t pro rate more than 2 classes. We close registrations latest by week 4.
- 6. Can I join a mixed age class with my baby?Absolutely! You can join any of our mixed age classes with your baby. If you decide to do so, sit close to the teacher, so she/he can give you special instructions on what to do with the baby if needed. We also provide you with a booklet specifically designed for “babies in mixed age classes”.
- 7. Should I take a baby class if my baby is 10 months old?If your baby is very active, I would recommend to join our mixed age classes as it is likely that your baby will be crawling or walking soon.
If you feel your baby is an observer and not likely to start crawling or walking soon, you can still join the baby class.
“My children (ages 3 1/2 and 2) have literally been going for their entire lives to Sol La Ti’s Music Together (in Morningside Heights and Harlem). Not only do they love it completely when they’re there and miss it when they’re not there, they have learned more from it than I can possibly describe here. They sang early, they spoke early, they danced early and they found a sense of joy in performance that I attribute directly to the time they spent at Sol La Ti and under the guidance of its amazing director, Gabriele Tranchina.
Not only is Gabriele a great teacher of children, (when is the last time you saw a roomful of toddlers literally entranced by someone speaking?), she is a great musician and singer who can captivate a roomful of tired parents as well. Her skills also extend to hiring staff, (as the various teachers at her locations all seem to be skilled teachers and performers), and most important to us, her skills extend to human relationships. When my husband was laid off in December, I feared the loss in my kids’ lives of extras they valued most; Gabriele worked with us, however, and brought her already-reasonable price down to what was affordable to us. In that sense and in so many others, you can not put a price tag on what her program offers. (But it does, by necessity, have a price tag and it’s a bargain.)
I keep thinking that ‘this is the year my kids will age out of Music Together’. My kids, however, have made clear to me that they’d like to take classes with Sol La Ti for a long time to come. If you’re looking for a fall music class, check it out now at (website),”
