Miss Lisa’s Kindermusik journey began in 2007 when she attended one of Linda Courchesne’s demo classes with her eldest son. She was impressed by how music and children’s education were so artfully combined. Before starting Kindermusik University she had worked as a Youth Program Director for Holland America Cruise line and ran her own home daycare. After completing her Kindermusik studies in 2008, she was mentored by Linda and taught at her Kids Music and Movement Studio in Niagara Falls. Eventually Miss Lisa took over the business and rebranded it as Shake Rattle and Roll Studio. Miss Lisa had a strong desire to go back to school, and after the birth of her youngest son, she made the difficult decision to close her studio and pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a nurse. She graduated with Honours from Mohawk College’s Practical Nursing Program and started working as a community nurse in the Grimsby area. As overjoyed as she was to be a nurse, she missed her Kindermusik family and the pure joy that singing and dancing bring. She re-connected with Miss Corrie and resumed teaching, as part of her team, at the Russell Ave. Community Centre in St. Catharines. She now works as a nurse educator at a busy medical clinic and is ecstatic to continue teaching Kindermusik part-time. She likes to think that nursing is her bread and butter, but Kindermusik is her hot fudge sundae. Every family she has taught over the past 13 years has enriched her life and added cheerful sprinkles to that sundae.
In every Kindermusik class, you’re welcomed into a playful and nurturing environment where your child will experience music of varying styles, genres, and cultures.They’ll interact with other children and engage in movement, rhythm, and vocal activities that develop far more than just music skills. Our approach to early childhood education and award-winning, research-based, and developmentally appropriate curricula prime children for success in school and in life.

What is Ongoing Enrollment?
We want to make your experience as easy as possible! Ongoing enrollment means that you can join or cancel anytime.
Monthly tuition is calculated by taking the total number of classes from September 2022 to June 2023 and dividing it into 10 equal automatic monthly installments. Upon registration your credit card will be billed a non refundable $25 registration/clerical fee which will secure your child's spot. Tuition will be processed on the first of each month thereafter beginning Sept 1st 2022 through June 1st 2023.
The monthly tuition fee does not represent a certain number of classes per month; rather, it represents a TOTAL number of classes for the school year. While most months do have 4 classes there may occasionally be a month with 3 or 5 classes depending on how the calendar falls.
You may enroll or cancel at any time however, written notice by email is required by the 20th of the month to avoid being charged the following monthly installment.

Make-up classes are an enrollment perk that allow you to add value to your investment and experience. Please note the following guidelines & policies regarding make-up classes.
If you know in advance you will miss a class (work conflict, vacation, appointment, illness) it is very much appreciated if you let Miss Corrie know as early as possible as this may allow someone else to use that space for a make up class.
If you or your child is unwell (fever, diarrhea, vomiting, skin sores or unexplained rash, thick green or yellow nasal discharge, general malaise or COVID-19 symptoms) the best place for you is at home where you can rest and recover. If you are experiencing any COVID-19 related symptoms, please follow the current Ontario guidelines.
When you miss a class, you may reach out to Miss Corrie for dates and times that are available for a make-up class or you can schedule directly via your my.kindermusik.come account under the Make Up Class tab. Alternatively, in most cases you may join your regularly scheduled class via Zoom instead. Please send a text or email to request the login information.
To be fair to all enrolled families, only one make-up class may be scheduled at a time
· Make-up classes are usually available, but can not be guaranteed since class sizes are capped for safety and enjoyment.
· Make-up classes can be used by siblings in the same family, even if the sibling is not currently enrolled in a class.
· Make-up classes are an enrollment perk. Once your enrollment ends, make-up classes can no longer be scheduled.
· There are no make-ups for missed make-ups.
· It is not possible to make-up Level 4 & 5 classes due to the progressive nature of the lessons. Arrangements can be made to recieve the missed week's home materials & activity sheets so that your child can complete these at home before the next scheduled class.
· If you are absent for a Playdate/ Single Class experience you can pick up the take-home gifts from the studio by coordinating with Miss Corrie. There are no make-ups or refunds for missed playdate experiences.
· There are no refunds for absences from classes for any reason.
· If you have special circumstances or compassionate reasons, please reach out so we can work together for your unique situation.
· In the event that the studio is closed for any reason, affected classes will be notified via class email along with a post on our social media pages (Facebook and Instagram)
· In general, the studio only closes for weather if local public schools are closed. Always use your own good judgement before heading out in wintry weather based on conditions where you live.
· It is the responsibility of the parent/ caregiver to ensure that they are aware of closures; Kindermusik With Miss Corrie will be diligent about informing families, but cannot be held responsible if the notifications are not seen.
· In general, when the studio is closed and classes are cancelled, an extra class is added to the end of the session. Full details will be provided to affected families.
