We aim to create an environment where students will grow the most musically and get the greatest value for their educational dollar. We also want our teachers to enjoy every minute of their experience teaching C&V students. This page outlines some of the policies intended to keep our operation running smoothly.
C&V operates on 11 or 12-week quarters.
Fall Quarter: September, October, November
Winter Quarter: December, January, February
Spring Quarter: March, April, May
Summer Quarter: June, July, August
we are closed one week during spring and fall quarters and two weeks during Winter and Summer quarters. Spring, Fall and Winter breaks will coincide with the Metro Nashville Public Schools calendar.
Students are assigned to a cohort based on scheduling, proficiency level and/or specialty interest. Enrollment commitments are for a quarter at a time.

Make Up Lessons
Students must communicate the need to postpone a lesson at least 12 hours before the lesson time. Postponed lessons must be rescheduled within the same quarter with the teacher, or another teacher teaching a similar section (instrument and proficiency level). The teacher providing the make up lesson must have an available seat. Lessons not postponed within 12 hours of the lesson time will be forfeited.
Students forfeit lessons not made up within a quarter (a period of 3 months from the postponed lesson) unless specific arrangements are made with the school administrator.
At Chords and Voices, students are expected to be respectful, responsible and safe.
Respectful means using kind, appropriate words, body language, and cyber-communication with instructors, classmates and anyone else present.
Responsible means showing up on-time for class, with necessary materials, having completed assignments and put in practice time.
Safe means using equipment the way it was intended, gently and carefully, refraining from horseplay, observing good hygiene by washing hands often, and being careful not to expose personal identifying data (PID) during virtual communications.
