BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH ROMELO NOW
Music is my life's passion and an integral part of who I am. I believe that anyone can create music. There are only twelve notes, but how we put them together is the way we create art. It is one of the only universal languages that can be enjoyed and made by all, and that is what makes it beautiful. An important part of my mentorship and teaching experience is encouraging my students/clients to step outside of their comfort zone by experimenting with their sound and vocal range in order to build confidence and creativity. In order to push these limitations and build strength in their skills, I always find it beneficial to practice consistency over practicing only when motivated to do so. I hope to share my innate love and passion for music, creativity and performance with others and inspire them to progress in their own musical journey.

I grew up with music all around me, my innate love and passion for it drove me to pursue an education and career in the field. I believe in building musical confidence in others that are working on their craft. Through live performances or studio sessions working on personal projects or collaborating with others, I always aim to teach and share my knowledge while also learning from those around me. I have developed my leadership skills in this field through artist coaching and song writing with clients. I have performed in a variety of festivals including: Waveland Canada's Everbloom Festival Ottawa's Dragonboat Festival Ottawa's Winter Jazz Festival Bytown Session CityFolk's Marvest Festival. I believe my talents and experience to be an asset to my teaching ability.
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).
