Price

How much does a course cost?


At our current structure our courses cost £49 for 6 weeks. However from October our prices will be increasing to £55 per course. This is to reflect increases in insurance, venue hire and additional services we will be delivering as part of our offering. It will include:

  • 6 x 30 minute music sessions delivered through live music by at least two music graduates.
  • 30 minutes for Tea/Coffee and social gathering in a separate space within the venue (excluding Liverpool Cathedral as they have in-house coffee shop.)
  • Free parking at Liverpool Cathedral for Friday clients.
  • High quality, age-appropriate instruments and equipment to explore and enjoy with your little ones each week.
  • Access to curated online resource hub with digital downloads & tutorials to reinforce learning that has takn place in the sessions.
  • Priority booking for upcoming courses and concerts which are oversubscribed.
  • Access to purchase merchandise and instruments.





Refunds

I can't make 'x' week, can I have a refund?


Unfortunately, we are not able to offer a refund for weeks that you cannot attend. Refunds incur a number of additional operational costs, which leaves us out of pocket, and as a small business is not sustainable. However, we do understand that things can come up and unforeseen circumstances can happen, and so are happy for you to offer your place to a friend and charge them for it. In these instances, we ask that you please let us know of the person attending in your place, so that we are aware and so that we can give them a warm Music in Unison welcome!




I can't make 'x' week, can I swap?


Unfortunately, this is not something that we are able to facilitate due to the logistics involved and the extra time and cost that it involves. However, we do understand that things can come up and unforeseen circumstances can happen, and so are happy for you to offer your place to a friend and charge them for it. In these instances, we ask that you please let us know of the person attending in your place, so that we are aware and so that we can give them a warm Music in Unison welcome!





Extra adults

Can extra adults come along?


Unfortunately, this is something we have to say no to. Whilst we would love to welcome the whole family, our class numbers are based on 15 adults attending each session. As I’m sure you can appreciate, this is even more critical in the current climate. We also want to limit the number of adults in a session as it can affect the dynmaics of our children's interactions. Our sessions are child-led and child focused, too many adults in a room can take away from this environment.




Can my mum bring my child as I'm in work this week?


Yes of course, as long as it is only one adult, it is up to you who attends with your child. If you’re able to, it’s great if you can let us know in advance, so that we know who to expect, and can give them a warm Music in Unison welcome!
