BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH AISHWARYA NOW
It is so important to delve into music at a young age, and I have found it has helped me professionally and personally. When we engage with a note, a harmony, a scale and ultimately, a song we are really tapping into our inner being. As a teacher, I have always captivated my students in the love of vocal music by making it relevant and fun for them. I guide my students in the nuances of theory, vocal expertise and performance with prior knowledge and commitment. I start every class with vocal breathing exercises, vocal warm-ups and good posture. I build the foundation first and I am diligent in ensuring we practice together in every lesson. I truly believe music is so beneficial for everyone, and if you would give me the honour, I would be pleased to embark on this journey with you! Whether you're a tiny tot or an adult, I will teach with the same respect and love for learning that I have received in my education and experience. I look forward to working with you in the next steps in your musical journey.
Name: Aishwarya (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I have been involved in music since I was 5 years old. My family and I used to do music together and I honed my craft by exposing ourselves to music theory and performance experience in various event venues and church. I studied at the London College of Music and I have my Grade 7 certificate with Distinction in Pop Vocals Music. My teacher was trained in all instruments and he taught me the discipline and dedication to specializing in voice training. A lot of my practical knowledge came from my concert experience singing at Bollywood shows, Christian gospel shows and by leading our choir in church. I am also one of the lead singers of the Toronto gospel band, All4Him and I am engaged in harmony, improvisation and leading audiences in worship.
Rates and Studio Policies
Registration Fee: $25.00 (One-time lifetime registration fee may be used by all family members)
Rates for instruction:
30 minute private lesson: $39.00
45 minute private lesson: $49.00
60 minute private lesson: $59.00
Travel charge: additional $15.00 per visit (for lessons in a client's home as opposed to my studio)
1. Cancellation Policy
Lessons not cancelled or rescheduled with at least 24 hours notice are billable to the client and payable to the teacher. This does not of course apply to travel fees unless the notice is effectively given at the door and the teacher has travelled to the location.
2. Cessation (quitting) Policy
A client must provide a 2 lesson notice period to stop lessons. So a weekly student needs to give 2 weeks of notice, a biweekly student works out to 3 weeks notice and a twice weekly student works out to a week of notice.
3. Illness Policy
Lessons cancelled due to illness or extraordinary circumstances with less than 24 hours notice remain billable to the client and payable to the teacher.
BAH teachers are encouraged to offer a make-up lesson at a future date in the interest of client relations and general goodwill. This only makes sense as teaching a student with the flu for example, will ruin the rest of your week's employment.
No more than 2 lessons may be made up due to illness within a 60 day period.
4. Rescheduling Policy
Any lesson can be cancelled or rescheduled with at least 24 hours notice.
Summer Vacation and Extended Absence Policy
Clients may schedule longer absences for trips etc. 24 hours notice is required.
It is normal and typical for students and about 20% of our teachers to schedule a break in the summer. We do not enforce a notice period (see cessation of lessons) at the end of a long summer break.
5. Evaluation Period
There are no free trial lessons with Beethoven at Home but we do offer a 2 lesson evaluation period where it is easy to try out a teacher. There are no free lessons during the evaluation period and clients may choose to discontinue the lessons at any time by providing the required 24 hours notice. After the student's 3rd lesson the required 2 lesson notice period will apply (see cessation of lessons above).
