In-Studio and Virtual Classes Available for Summer!

Registration opens at 6 am on Monday May 25.

Fundamentally Music's Summer Session will offer 'At Home' through interactive virtual classes on Zoom and small 'In-Studio' classes at the Kirby and Heights location.  
Families can register one session/month at a time.   At Home offers 2 classes per week for $60 per segment or $180 for the 12-week summer session.  In-Studio classes are once a week for $80 per segment or $240 for the 12-week summer session.  Both options include The Dolphin Collection music and virtual songbook available on your TMC APP.  

At Home families:  Register for your regular class day and time and then uses MAKEUPS on your home screen dashboard to schedule a second class each week!  Fees are reduced from in-studio class fees and families only pay one fee even if they have multiple children.  Older siblings are welcome to attend virtually.

In Studio families:  Each student must be registered except for infant siblings of registered toddlers 10 months and under.  While we plan to clean and sanitize like never before and have new rules to keep everyone safe, we please ask you to not register for in-studio classes if your child or close family member is immunocompromised, or has a chronic coughing condition.  Grownups must wear masks to class.  We will not allow sick children, sick grownups, or anyone who appears sick (even if it's allergies) to come to class.   In-studio makeup availability will be limited so we cannot guarantee makeups.   However you can attend an At-Home class for makeups at any time.

We are hoping to add more In-Studio classes in July!  We can't wait to see you in virtual or in-studio classes!!!
