About Nely
Nely is a versatile piano teacher with a Master's in Music Education from the University of La Rioja, Spain. Fluent in English and Spanish, she offers piano lessons online, at her studio in Vancouver, or in your home. Nely believes joy and play are essential in learning, ensuring lessons are fun and tailored to each student's needs. She teaches students from age 7 to adults, covering various genres and techniques. Whether you're a beginner or looking to advance your skills, Nely's expertise and passion for music will guide you on your musical journey.


Music is not just a hobby; it is an intrinsic part of my being, and I firmly believe that it should be an integral part of every person's education. The rhythm and sound are ingrained in our bodies, from the beating of our hearts to the sound of our breath, and formal music training is simply an expansion of what already exists within us. As I begin my lessons with new students, I tailor my approach based on their existing knowledge of the piano and musical theory. My teaching style revolves around a balance of discipline and fun, creating an environment where the student feels connected and at ease, fostering the perfect atmosphere for learning. I believe that joy and play are essential components of successful learning at any age, and I ensure that my students learn without undue stress and anxiety. I encourage them to play and enjoy the songs they choose, as well as incorporating songs that will help them overcome any weaknesses they may have. This approach is the key to achieving the best results and nurturing a lifelong love for music in my students.

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).
