“Learning music should be an adventure, a path where wonder and exhilaration flourish.”
BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH TALA NOW
Music is my very essence, a universal language that resonates deep within the human soul. I firmly believe that music education is a profound journey of self-discovery and expression, available to all. In my philosophy, music and joy are inseparable, breathing life into each other. Without joy, music becomes mechanical, and without music, joy is silent. My mission is to inspire and nurture a deep love for music, guiding my students toward a lifelong partnership with the enchanting world of sound.
Name: Tala (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I'm a passionate and accomplished pianist, dedicated to crafting enchanting musical experiences. My goal is to share my extensive repertoire and deep musical knowledge to inspire others through piano music. My education includes ongoing pursuit of a Piano Degree at the Lebanese National Higher Conservatory of Music since 2010. As a freelance piano teacher since June 2019, I specialize in teaching children and young learners, creating engaging learning environments and comprehensive lesson plans to build their musical understanding. I also served as a pianist at Kempinski Summerland Resort in Beirut from July to August 2019, where I captivated diverse audiences with my extensive repertoire. My skills encompass Solfège, Music Theory, Harmony, and Oriental Music Theory. I'm fluent in French, English, and Arabic. These experiences and skills reflect my unwavering dedication to music and my commitment to sharing the joy of piano, your lifelong companion in the symphony of your soul.
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).
