Helpful Info

Welcome to Music Connections Foundation

Music Connections Foundation is the overarching name of our studio with two focus areas. Kindermusik which offers classes for children from birth to age 7 and studioCONNECT offering our musical theater classes as well as group piano, voice, ukulele and private piano, voice, violin, and viola lessons.

Classes Run From September - May

Enrollment is ongoing and continuous through out the school year.   Families are welcome to join any class with availability at any time!  Cancellation of a class requires notifying the office before the last day of your final month of class.

Our Summer Camp Session is June & July

Typically we offer two, four week sessions during the month of June and July.

100% Money-back Guarantee

We promise this is the best music class for you and your child or you get your money back. If you are not completely satisfied after attending 6 consecutive classes*, we’ll refund 100% of your monthly fees! No kidding! (*Because it takes 6 weeks for a routine to be established for your child)

Parent Portal

Our studio uses Jackrabbit Dance as our enrollment tool / parent portal. Here you can register for classes, update your contact and payment information, check your account and balance, and view our class offerings. You will also find announcements posted there as well.

Register Early

Classes are filled on a first come, first served basis. Although you may join our Kindermusik classes at any time, please register early since class sizes are limited and many fill quickly. By registering early, you ensure that your class music is delivered on time. A minimum of four students is needed or a class may be cancelled.

Enrollment for studioConnect Musical Theater classes occurs at the beginning of each session.  Due to the nature of the material being taught, movement from one SCMT class during a session or enrollment after the session has already begun typically is not possible.

Private lessons at studioConnect can be started at any time based on teacher availability.

Enrollment Confirmation

Enrollment on our parent portal with registration fee must be completed before your first class. Available spots are filled on a first come, first serve basis. When your registration is completed, you will receive a confirmation email from our enrollment tool. If your first choice is not available, we encourage you to sign up for your second choice and ask to be added to the wait list of your preferred day and time. If an opening becomes available, we will contact to you to see if you would like to switch your day and time.

Choosing a Class

The age recommendations outlined for Kindermusik classes have been carefully constructed to best group children in an age and developmentally appropriate way. Therefore, it is important that your child be at least the minimum age by the start of the session for the class in which you are enrolling. If you have concerns about your child’s success in a particular age range, we are happy to discuss your child’s needs and work with you to place your child in an appropriate class.


The fee paid when you register reserves a place for your child in our program and is non-refundable. Kindermusik digital music access on the Kindermusik App accompanies the classroom experience as are scripts or lesson books for studioConnect offerings.  These are all purchased by the studio in advance in preparation for your participation.

Sibling Discounts

Families who enroll more than one child in the same Kindermusik class receive $10 off the 2nd child’s monthly fees.  Families with 3 or more children enrolled in any class receive $10 of the total of their monthly fees.

Refer a Friend

Refer a friend who enrolls (NEW to Music Connections) and receive a $15 referral award toward class fees! NO limit! Just make sure your friend mentions your name when enrolling, or shoot us an email to let us know.

Make-up Classes

Make-up classes are offered throughout the year in Kindermusik classes and are scheduled based on availability. Send us an email at or text us at 309-828-6806 and let us know when you’d like to come!

Free Visits

Weather Cancellations

The best sources for “up to the minute” weather cancellations are the parent portal announcement page, class Remind groups or our Facebook page: Cancellations do not always follow school closings and are made in the interest of safety. Classes cancelled due to “act of God” closings are not refunded or re-scheduled, but make-ups are always welcomed!
