BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH DANIELA NOW
I focus my teaching on helping my students discover the means through which they can both enjoy and progress toward realizing their dreams. My aim is for them to find their unique voice or sound by developing a healthy technique and musicality. For me, the most crucial aspect is that they comprehend what they are doing and derive enjoyment from the learning process
Name: Daniela (Full name will be provided upon registration)
Versatile musician with a rich background in both instrumental and vocal training, boasting 15 years of dedicated musical exploration. Commencing musical studies at the age of 9, I delved into the intricacies of flute and voice under the guidance of classically trained mentors, with my flute teacher tracing lineage back I could play in the representative youth orchestra in Bogota. A graduate of Universidad central with a focus in interpretation in flute.My education encompassed performance classes in voice and opera music. My formative years included private flute studies, fostering a rigorous and detailed approach to the instrument. Simultaneously, I honed my vocal skills under the guidance of a classical teacher, complemented by immersive experiences in the Coro de la Opera, fundacion orquesta sinfonica nacional in the choir and Coro filarmonico Juvenil de Bogota. Noteworthy performances include collaborations with the Orquesta sinfonica de Bogota y orquesta filarmonica de Bogota. This diverse musical foundation has equipped me with the tools to navigate various genres and styles, ensuring success as both an interpreter and performer. I am proud to bring a wealth of experience and clear techniques to any musical endeavor, enriched by a comprehensive education and a passion for artistic expression
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).
Daniela 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.
