Can you remind me of the cancellation policy?
Sure! We require 48 hours' notice if you need to reschedule a lesson. Each student is allowed 3 cancellations (that don't fall on holidays) which will be applied as a credit towards future classes if makeups are unable to be scheduled. Our teachers are paid hourly, so these policies exist to ensure that they can confidently commit to your time slot for months at a time. If your teacher has to miss a lesson, we will always offer you a makeup lesson or a substitute during your regular lesson time. Please click here to read more about our policies!
Do you have any tips to help my child establish a better practice routine?
Sure, click HERE for some of our tips! If you still have questions, feel free to reach out to us anytime!
When is the showcase this year?
As you know, students perform their own original songs at an annual “Spring Songwriting Showcase” held at the Knitting Factory in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (date TBD) (and at the Bluebird Café in Nashville!). We also have other opportunities to perform throughout the year. Can anyone say winter showcase?!
We would like to upgrade our instrument but aren't sure what to get. Can you help?
Yes! Click HERE for a list of instruments we frequently recommend. Email us anytime if you need any specific recommendations for your family or you have any questions!
Reach out to us anytime with questions! We are so excited for the new semester!
