BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH JEANINE NOW
Music holds the remarkable power to transform lives. Whether one becomes a professional musician or not, the study of music enriches the human experience and fosters a heightened sense of sensitivity and appreciation for its beauty. I strongly believe that individuals who engage with music education develop a profound connection with their emotions and become ardent music lovers. The act of studying music enhances one's ability to perceive and appreciate the intricate details within musical compositions. Moreover, music plays a vital role in a child's development. It stimulates creativity, nurtures logical reasoning skills, instills discipline in their daily lives, and fosters concentration. These invaluable qualities cultivated through music education positively impact various aspects of a child's growth. Additionally, music acts as a universal language, breaking down barriers and opening doors to new cultures. Through music, individuals gain exposure to diverse traditions and perspectives, expanding their horizons and cultivating invaluable social skills. In summary, music possesses a transformative quality that goes beyond professional aspirations. It shapes individuals, stimulates creativity, and fosters a deep appreciation for cultural diversity, ultimately enhancing the overall human experience.
Name: Jeanine (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I have pursued my education at the Federal University of Goias in Brazil, where I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Piano. My musical journey began at the age of five and continued until I turned twenty-three. Growing up in a musical environment, with my mother being a pianist, I was fortunate to receive valuable guidance and instruction from her. Additionally, I had the privilege of studying under a meticulous and experienced teacher who had obtained her Master's Degree in the United States. Throughout my musical development, I actively participated in performances and took part in holiday programs in my country. In addition to my piano studies, I also took on the role of a piano instructor at two different music schools. Furthermore, I honed my vocal skills and dedicated five years to singing in the university choir, participating in numerous presentations and performances.
My first contact with music was at home, always listening to my mother playing the piano, where I started my first studies. In addition to teaching me to play, she also used to play the piano with four hands and liked to play so that I could sing. During the time I studied, I always enjoyed teaching, especially for children. Getting to know the Suzuki method was very important for me, as it added even more knowledge and skills to deal with children. This method works a lot on perception because it has games, repertoires, communicating with students of all ages and their families.
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).
