Music generates so many great feelings in a human being. It helps human being become more sensitive towards their environment. I believe that by providing proper guidance and training I can inspire students to achieve so much within the musical world. Music gives me inner bliss, and to watch a student reaching great height gives me so much pleasure. I would encourage and respect the musical needs of all students regardless of age to help them achieve their musical goals in life.

Name: Dona Rajindini (Full name will be provided upon registration)

Age: 30's

Gender: female

I began my musical career at a very young age under the methodical guidance and training from a highly qualified classical piano music teacher in Sri Lanka. I managed to acquire a broad understanding pertaining to technique and performance under her guidance. I became the Prize Winner for my Associates Diploma and received the Honorary Mention for my Licentiate in Classical piano music performance from the Trinity College of Music London. I even became the All Island prize winner for 3 consecutive years in Sri Lanka.

Distinctions on all graded level exams in piano and theory. All Island Prize Winner at Classical Piano Recital Competitions for 3 consecutive years. (2000,2001,2002) Prize winner ATCL (2003) Trinity College of Music London. Honorary Mention LTCL (2008) Trinity College of Music London.

I started learning music at a very young age and my first piano teacher was my grandmother who was a very famous and qualified music teacher. My training was primarily at home and in classical piano music. I was the prize winner at graded level examinations and I was able to complete my graded levels before I turned 15. I then moved on to a highly qualified teacher and under her guidance, sat my Associates (ATCL) and Licentiate (LTCL) examinations in classical piano recital from Trinity College of Music London. I also participated in many All Island Competitions for Classical Piano recitals. I have been a piano teacher at two famous International Schools and have been running my own private music school for more than 15 years in Sri Lanka, where I have presented students for examinations and also produced prize winners. I have also been working with students of all ages who wanted to learn music for pleasure. I have worked as a lecturer and trained teacher candidates learning the fundamentals of music under the Early Childhood Education Program In Sri Lanka. I am currently working as a music teacher and presenting students for RCM examinations while also helping music lovers and beginners enjoy note reading and learn music for pleasure.


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).

Online lessons

Dona Rajindini 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.
