BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH PABLOSKY NOW
I come from a family where my mother was a dedicated school teacher and my father was a musician. Combining both influences, I ended up a bit like "Malcolm in the middle," being the second of three siblings. Teaching is a truly humbling experience, as each session is a learning opportunity for both teacher and student. For me, the ultimate reward as a music educator is witnessing my students flourish into accomplished professional musicians; that's always my goal when I teach. Seeing a student perform on a big stage and knowing that I played a role in their journey is a dream come true. I value raw talent, encourage improvisation and creativity, while also emphasizing the importance of consistent skill development. Whether we realize it or not, we're all part of a pivotal moment in human history. Through music, teachers and students contribute to shaping a more empathetic, imaginative, and emotionally intelligent society. This is exactly why I'm on a mission as a music educator: to inspire creativity and foster better humanity through my teaching.
Name: Pablosky (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I attended Pedagogical University Enrique José Varona in Havana Cuba where I completed a five year program in Musical Education
I enjoy writing customized short etudes and exercises in order to develop an specific technical skill in a student. Such approach adds value to my teaching as I pay detailed attention to each student technical requirements individually . During my days as a teacher at The Ontario Conservatory of Music I also took a lot of pleasure in writing guitar Duets and Trios that, aside from being fun to the students , also prepared them for the ensembles class which I was also directing .
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).
Pablosky can provide online instruction. While other platforms are possible BAH strongly recommends the use of the Zoom video conferencing platform as it is optimized for music lessons and audio quality.
