Atcheleh - BAH Teacher #3409

“I ensure that students enjoy the process of honing their craft, no matter their age - because without heart, there is no art.”
 - Atcheleh


Music is about expression. It's about finding your individuality within and without the collective. It's about putting your emotions, your beliefs - yourself - on display for those who listen. I aim to help students better express themselves by developing their fundamentals and achieve consistency, as those two components are key parts of the foundation through which one will present themselves. A strong foundation is important, but what is most crucial is the joy of making music. I will ensure that students enjoy the process of honing their craft, no matter their age - because without heart, there is no art.

Name: Atcheleh (Full name will be provided upon registration)

Age: 21

Gender: female

I am entering my fourth year in the Bachelor of Music program at Humber College. I have studied trumpet with two professional trumpet players over the last six years. From them, I learned a great deal about the mechanics of the trumpet, as well as improvisation and lead trumpet playing. In addition to my studies, I spent a great deal of my eight-year career playing with youth jazz big bands across Ottawa, and more recently smaller jazz ensembles in Toronto.


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).
