Felipe - BAH Teacher #3178

“In my lessons, I show the technical aspects of the musical language and piano playing in an accessible way.”
 - Felipe


Pour moi, le plus important c’est de montrer aux élèves que jouer le piano et pratiquer peut être intéressant et amusant, et en même temps donner des explications claires et objectives.

In the last 8 years I have been teaching kids from 5 years old, teenagers and adults. Among these students, some were interested in pursuing a professional career, and some were learning the piano as a hobby. In my professional career as a pianist I had the opportunity to play solos with orchestra twice, with Beethoven 3rd Piano Concerto, and Mendelssohn 1st Piano Concerto. I also took part in many music festivals and piano competitions, winning more than 10 prizes in competitions, and having the opportunity of playing in many different countries, as Brazil, Germany, Italy, France, Slovenia, Austria, Hungary, USA. This experience help me to teach both students who also want to have a professional career, as well as students who are learning to play the piano as a hobby.





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).
