Lesson Cancellation Policy

In order to be eligible for a makeup lesson, the studio needs to be notified by at least 9 AM on the day of the lesson.  Please make sure you contact us by email at, or by phone at (512) 268-0166 to cancel a lesson. 

"Reschedule" Policy

Students eligible for a makeup lesson, may attend an alternative lesson per the following schedule:

  • Make up lessons will be offered one Saturday per semester.

  • Make up lessons may be private or group lessons.

  • Students will only be allowed 2 make up lessons per semester due to instructor availability.

No refunds permitted for missed lessons. In the event that an instructor cancels a lesson, an equivalent make-up lesson will be provided by the end of the semester.

It is the customer’s responsibility to request a makeup lesson. Customers understand that they must pay for all missed lessons whether a rescheduled lesson date/time was provided or not. If a rescheduled lesson is missed, the student will forfeit that lesson time.

Lesson Substituion

Curious Chords Music Studio will always attempt to find a substitute instructor in the event that your normal instructor is unable to attend the lesson. Having a substitute teacher does not authorize a student to reschedule or cancel their regular music lesson.

Schedule Changes

From time-to-time, we may need to modify - temporarily or permanently - a student’s regular lesson time/date. If this becomes necessary, a mutually agreeable alternative lesson time/date will be found. Curious Chords Music Studio reserves the right to modify, change, or alter all students’ schedule if necessary.

Late Arrivals

All students shall be available to start their lessons at the designated date and time. Please arrive early to ensure that your lesson will begin on time. Students arriving late will have their lesson shorted to allow the next lesson to begin on time. There are no refunds or credits for students arriving late.
