Q: How old should my child be to start classes?

IN PERSON CLASSES: We welcome newborns to age 4 years. The smallest of babies can benefit from the enhanced brain development, socialization, listening, motor skills, and bonding that our music classes provide. Young children are drawn to rhythms reminding them of their mother’s heartbeat. Toddlers, preschoolers, and Pre-K-aged lovebugs will find that our classes are developmentally appropriate and fun for all ages. 
ONLINE CLASSES: You are the best judge of when your child can begin enjoying online classes. We recognize that screens aren’t ideal for young babies, however when our online classes are used to connect parents and children through our carefully crafted musical activities, great benefits can be reaped. The smallest of babies can benefit from the enhanced brain development, socialization, listening, motor skills, and bonding that our music classes provide. Young children are drawn to rhythms reminding them of their mother’s heartbeat. Toddlers, preschoolers, and Pre-K-aged lovebugs will find that our classes are developmentally appropriate and fun for all ages. 

Q: Why would I want a mixed-age class for my child? 

Our classes are developmentally appropriate, allowing every child to approach the activity at their own pace and progress to the next stage of music development on their own timetable. Mixed-age classes provide children with the opportunity to interact with groups of different ages, to be models for younger children, and have older children, parents, and teachers model for them.

Q: What do I need to bring to class?

INDOOR: You will need to bring your mask as well as proof of full COVID vaccination status.  Please do not bring food or non-essential drinks into the classroom. Socks are recommended as we are a shoe-free venue. 

 OUTDOOR:  Bring a blanket to sit on, we suggest one that is waterproof since the grass could be wet from the morning dew. Keep in mind that our outdoor classes can be sunny, we do our best to provide shade but that is not guaranteed. Please bring water.

ONLINE: Please prepare the space for the best online experience. We suggest clearing the room to provide a distraction-free environment. Round up a few instruments for your child to use. You can order instruments or use your imagination and create some at home. Pots & pans… or a box of macaroni and cheese are great!


Q: Do you provide instruments? How are they cleaned?

YES, we provide a variety of instruments for our lovebugs and grownups to play! We sanitize ALL of the instruments and props prior to each class using CDC recommended, non-toxic cleaners. All instruments are removed from circulation after each use and are fully cleaned and sanitized prior to the next class using hospital grade Hypochlorous Acid. Instruments and props may not be shared.


Q. Do I need to register for classes, drop-ins, and make ups in advance?

Yes! Our classes fill quickly and we encourage you to register for your class, drop-ins, and make-ups in advance through our website. We highly recommend that you check our website for the latest updates on class days/times/teachers before you register. You can also contact our office if you need further assistance.


Q: What if I have to miss a class?

We ask that you let us know as soon as you know you’ll be missing a class. Please mark your absence first under "MY ACCOUNT". Then to schedule a Make Up within the series, visit our MAKE UP SCHEDULER.


Q: What happens if my class is canceled due to weather or COVID?

In the event that a class needs to be canceled due to: 

     1) A COVID surge, your class will be moved online or to an outdoor location. 
     2) If we need to cancel due to weather, teacher illness, or anything beyond our control, you will have a choice of participating in an in-person Make Up, live-stream class or watching a recorded video of that week's class. We will not be able to provide refunds or credits for these classes in these instances. If LoveBug cancels a class for internal reasons, you will be offered a new class option, credit, or a refund.


Q: Is it possible to receive a refund?

We offer refunds in full up to 14 days prior to the series start date. After that date, there are no refunds or credits toward future series.


Q: My child is very active, will this be distracting?

We have had so many lovebugs take their first steps in our classes! We encourage kids to be kids. The only rule is to stay safe. During times of social distancing, we require all families to make sure to maintain a safe distance. If you find that your child becomes upset or overwhelmed, we recommend stepping outside of class until they are feeling better.


Q: What is your sick policy?

We all want our little lovebugs to stay safe and healthy. Please do not come to class if you or your child's caretaker have any symptoms of illness, or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19. Click here for our Wellness Policy and COVID protocols.
