The human voice is the best music instrument. Every person who can speak has a voice. My task is to reveal its natural possibilities. Singing is a natural process that should easy and enjoyable. Any age is suitable to start learning to sing. But for children vocal lessons are especially useful, because they lay the foundations of correct pronunciation and breathing. Singing is good for health, singing heals. I work with students patiently and attentively, teach students not only to sing, but also to love public performances.

Serhii Prokofiev Donetsk National Academy of Music (Ukraine) - master's degree of academic singing

As a singer, I am a laureate of Ukrainian and international vocal competitions. As a teacher, I have more than 40 gratitudes for the preparation of the winners of the vocal competitions. Also I have 18 gratitudes from the college administration and from the regional authorities for the development of culture.

I have a lot experience in fixing serious voice problems. I often use game methods when working with children. In addition to solo singing, I taught such subjects at the music college: the method of teaching singing, protecting the children's voice and stage preparation.




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).
