“It is important to me that my students enjoy their lessons.”
BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH ALICIA NOW
It is most important for me that my students enjoy their lessons, and that they leave feeling like they have learnt something valuable. I hope to share my passion for violin and music with everyone I can.
Name: Alicia (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I am currently completing my Bachelors of Music Performance at the Glenn Gould Royal Conservatory of Music. I have been playing violin since the age of 4, and I completed the Royal Conservatory level 10 exam at the age of 15.
I have represented Fredericton at the Provincial Music Festival 5 times. I moved on to the National Music Festival, where I represented New-Brunswick in the year of 2018. That year, I was also awarded the Award of Excellence at the Fredericton Music Festival. I have been awarded the Anataraman Award for Excellence in the Ottawa Junior Youth Orchestra for the season of 2014-2015.
I spent my years of high school giving weekly lessons to my orchestra's violinists, which was very fulfilling and educative. I have always been in an environment surrounded by music, playing in orchestras and ensembles since the age of 7. I have also helped my little brother with his violin practice since I was around 14.
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).
Alicia can provide online instruction. While other platforms are possible BAH strongly recommends the use of the Zoom video conferencing platform as it is optimized for music lessons and audio quality.
