BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH TATIANA NOW
Music makes our lives so much happier and fuller. It is an extremely rewarding and satisfying art form, where one can express himself/herself. As a teacher, my goal is to provide tools to my students that are required in order to achieve their personal musical goals. I tailor lessons according to each student’s needs and objectives. Learning in an engaging and yet an informative way is key to my teaching.
Name: Tatiana (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I am currently pursuing my second Master’s degree in Voice at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz, in Austria. I hold a Master’s degree in Opera from the University of Toronto and a Bachelor’s degree with Distinction in Voice Performance from the University of Alberta. I have studied singing for 10 years and piano for 5 years. I have sung and played music of various genres: everything from pop, folk, metal, musical to opera. I’ve also been parts of various bands, ensembles, orchestras and choirs.
Over the years I am humbled to have received the Music Individual Grant by Alberta Foundation for the Arts, the Johann Strauss Foundation Award, the Winspear Fund Scholarship for Advanced Classical Music, the Richard Eaton Scholarship in Music, the Vienna Opera Ball Society Scholarship and more.
I have a lot of professional solo and ensemble stage experience. I have performed music of various genres at various companies such as Oper Graz, Edmonton Opera, Jubilee Auditorium, Winspear Centre, Four Seasons Center, Musikverein Graz, The Starlite Room and more. I have sung the role of the Countess from Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro, Anna Maurrant from Weill’s Street Scene, Diana Devereaux from Gershwin’s Of Thee I Sing, Hanna Glawari from Lehar’s The Merry Widow, 3 Norn from Wagner’s Götterdämmerung, Siegrune from Wagner’s Die Walküre, Sandrina from Mozart’s La Fina Giardiniera and more.
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).
Tatiana 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.
