“Students of all ages can learn without unnecessary stress and anxiety.”
BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH ALEX NOW
When you begin to play a musical instrument, it's just the start of an exciting musical journey. Every day, this path reveals the beauty of the music world and its incredible richness. As your first teacher, my role is to introduce you to this beautiful world of music, and I'm excited to do just that. I firmly believe that joy and play are fundamental to successful learning, regardless of age. My teaching approach ensures that students of all ages can learn without unnecessary stress and anxiety. Adult students will receive the same level of support and respect as the youngest learners. After all, joy and music are inseparable, and it's my goal to bring both into the learning process.
Name: Alex (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I have attended the following schools and earned the following degrees: - National Music Academy of Ukraine: Master of Music - Bortnyansky Musical College: Bachelor of Music
One of my most cherished rewards as a teacher is receiving calls from former students and receiving Christmas cards from them. It's heartwarming to know that I've made a lasting impact on their lives.
Playing music around the world has provided me with a tremendous opportunity. It has introduced me to new friends, expanded my knowledge, and instilled in me the idea that learning never stops. Music will always be with me; it's an integral part of who I am.
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).
