“Enabling a student to access that inner expression allows them to grow not only as a singer but also as an artist.”
BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH AREGNAZ NOW
Any student of voice has the ability to succeed – either on a personal level, a professional level or both. It is my job as their teacher to set the expectations very high; higher than the student may think they can achieve at first. Whether or not the student actually achieves the expectation at face value is not the point. The journey to reach those heights is how the student truly discovers their voice, their art and themselves. I provide the student with every bit of information that I can to guide them through their journey. But ultimately, the job of all teachers is to take the student to the point where they don’t need us anymore. Music, in general and singing in particular, is very personal. Students who learn to sing tend to become very vulnerable during the process. After learning the basic technique, they must look inside themselves to find their expression and create their art. I believe in creating a safe and enthusiastic environment for my students to explore that part of themselves. Enabling a student to access that inner expression allows them to grow not only as a singer but also as an artist.
Name: Aregnaz (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I am a graduate of Yerevan's Romanos Melikyan State Musical College, where I excelled in composing. I am the author of more than 100 songs in classical, folk, jazz, rock music genres. My songs have been performed by opera singers of Armenia in different concerts .Renowned Armenian composer and pianist Robert Amirkhyanyan described my songs as “magical creations”.
Sharing a deep-rooted love of Art, my family spent much of our time playing, singing, and painting together. I began singing at age six when I began my education. I have worked in music school and summer ca mps as a vocal teacher. These experiences have enriched me as a treacher. I truly understand the philosophy of teaching children.
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).
Aregnaz 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.
