BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH HARJOT NOW
I believe that everyone should be able to pursue music and art as It is something that is fundamental to being human. Without the arts we lose our sense of joy and fun. With that being said, I like to bring joy and play to my lessons so you can forget about the stress of the world and have fun because that's what music is all about. I provide games as warm-ups while also being able to teach the essentials in a fun and engaging manner for all ages.
Name: Harjot (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I am currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music with a focus on Voice and Composition at the prestigious University of Calgary, with an expected graduation date of August 2023. Additionally over the past two years, I have undergone rigorous training under the tutelage of an esteemed vocal coach, honing my skills and deepening my understanding of the intricacies of teaching and learning the art of voice.
I was awarded with The Marilyn Perkins Award for voice in 2017.
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).
