- Tuition at Austin Music Academy is a flat subscription-based fee charged on the first day of each month. Your subscription holds your time slot in the schedule with your teacher throughout the year. Austin Music Academy is a year-round music school meaning that your subscription continues unless withdrawal is requested. We accept enrollment at all times of the year. Austin Music Academy is closed on the majority of national holidays and school breaks. The price of these breaks is already included in your flat subscription rate.
- Upon enrollment the subscription for the first month will be prorated for new students based on the amount of lessons remaining in that month.
- All students will be on AutoPay and will need to keep a payment method on file.
- Students are charged a studio fee of $35/student or $70/family. This fee will be automatically processed annually on the enrollment anniversary. This fee includes free entrance for the student and any guests into all Austin Music Academy recitals throughout the year and participation in any studio activities and prizes.
- A Multiple Student Discount of $7/month will be applied for each subscription for families that have three or more subscriptions on their account.
- Educational material, music books, instrument rental and other accessories are additional costs expected to be paid by the client.
- A late fee of $20 will be applied to any outstanding invoices that are 15 days overdue.
- If your regular teacher becomes unavailable on a permanent basis for any reason, Austin Music Academy will provide a new teacher at the same time or work with you to find a new teacher/time slot.
- At Austin Music Academy we strive to make things as flexible as possible for our students and their families. In order to withdraw from lessons please call our office to request a Withdrawal Form. Once the Withdrawal Form is filled out we will end your subscription at the end of the current month. You will not be charged for the upcoming month regardless of what date you complete the Withdrawal Form. Once your subscription is withdrawn on the first no refunds will be given for the current month. The student can choose to attend or forgo those lessons.
- Austin Music Academy acknowledges special circumstances including injuries and other extenuating situations and will work with the client to find the best solution.

Missed Lesson - Client Caused
- If a student cancels their lessons (online, at the front desk, or by calling in) at least 24 hours in advance they will be provided a Make-Up Lesson Credit on their account. This Make-Up Lesson will expire 30 days from the day it is activated. Austin Music Academy does not refund for unused/expired Make-Up Credits.
- Make-up Lessons can be scheduled with any teacher, although we recommend scheduling with your own teacher for the best experience and progression for the student.

- No more than two Make-up Lesson Credits can be pending at a time per membership.
Missed Lesson - Teacher Caused
- Our teachers place the utmost priority on attending their scheduled lessons. If for whatever reason they are unable to teach a lesson, a substitute teacher will be arranged or a Make-up Lesson Credit will be applied to your account. A Teacher Caused Make-Up Lesson Credit will not have an expiration date and can be used at your convenience.. In the event of a substitute, teachers will strive to give parents and students as much advance notice as possible. If you would prefer a Make-Up Lesson Credit to be applied to your account rather than taking the lesson with the substitute you may call the studio to request this.
- Austin Music Academy will apply a $25 referral credit to any family that refers another family to take lessons. Please email [EMAIL HERE] with your name and the referred families name to redeem this credit.
