6. How long is each weekly episode available to view?

7. How do I know my child/ren will enjoy the program?
The Musical has been engaging children for 10 years in early childhood music education. We love what we do and make it fun! All children participate and learn differently though. The benefit of having weekly access to the program is that you can play it as often as you like which will help children enjoy and join in the program.
It's not important for children to do all parts of the program everyday or perfectly, they may join in the dancing or instruments on one day and be focused on the story or activities the next. We know that children can't help but move when they hear the music we play and that is a great start!
8. How often should we do the program?
Daily! research shows daily exposure to music assists in developing: literacy, speech and physical development. In the last 5 years we have run The Musical Garden program 5 days a week in a childcare centre 'One World for Children' in Geelong.
The children who attend music time daily show a greater understanding of music concepts and participate more confidently. Such great news for families joining in The Musical Garden with daily access at home!
9. I signed up for 5 weeks and now want to sign up for 20.
That's great! Email us directly and we will sign you up!
10. How do I stop payments?
The weekly payments will only go for the weeks you purchased and automatically stop at the end of that payment term. Payments are non refundable and must be fulfilled for the weeks you purchased.
11. I have more than 1 child, what do I pay?
You only pay the 1 weekly fee and not per child! Great value! Also the more weeks you purchase in advance, the more you save!
12. I have children of different ages at home. What age is suggested best for the program?
This program is designed to engage and teach children of varying ages and ability. The children will all participate in their own way and to reflect their development, but all will benefit. There's more on the website about the specifics of the program to help guide you.
13. Why online, do you offer classes elsewhere?
The program has run successfully as a parent/child class, in childcare centers, playgroups, kinders and schools. Currently Covid-19 is sweeping Australia (and the world). Online classes are a wonderful way for us to stay connected and keep the love of music alive in children and families. We hope to see you in a live class when we can run face to face classes again!
