Music is a passion of our entire family. My husband and children are in the music industry. I have been working with students at the musical college both as a musicologist and pianist-concertmaster for over 33 year. I also worked a lot with many children who were pupils of the art school at the college. I worked a lot of with young and adult singers and accompanied them at competitions, where they became laureates. As a teacher I am always kind to students. I am always friendly, have enough patience to explain many times. I love all kinds of students, both talented and not so. They are all good to me. I believe that music is a necessary part of the upbringing of all children. I treat children with respect as adults, because they are future adults.

Name: Nataliia (Full name will be provided upon registration)

Age: 50's

Gender: female

I studied piano from the age of 7 in a music school. Ternopil music college , 1982-1986, bachelor’s degree in musicology. Lviv music academy, 1986-1991, master’s degree in musicology. My musical training included thorough piano lessons.

As a pianist accompanist, I worked with different instruments, but mostly with singers. I like working with vocalists the most, because the human voice is the most perfect instrument. As a musicologist, I have spoken at the scientific conferences and wrote scientific article. I also wrote reviews for concerts and other musical events for newspapers and magazines in my city. I regularly participated in music theory competitions for the pupils of music schools from my region.

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).
