BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH VICTORIA-ROSE NOW
Music has been an unwavering passion in my life from the very beginning, shaping meaningful friendships, inspiring mentorships, and creating cherished memories. As an educator, whether in the context of a band class or private lessons, my ultimate goal is to guide students in exploring their creativity and nurturing their confidence through the enchantment of music. Whether it's honing their skills on an instrument, developing a deep appreciation for music as an art form, or discovering a new hobby, I firmly believe that the transformative power of music is boundless. Through my teaching, I aim to instill in students the joy and wonder that music has brought into my life, empowering them to embrace the magic of their own musical journey.
Name: Victoria-Rose (Full name will be provided upon registration)
My journey with music started in middle school, and it truly flourished during my time in High School. Engaging in concert band, jazz band, and choir became a big part of my life. At the University of Victoria, I pursued Music Education as my major, focusing on trumpet as my primary instrument, while also becoming proficient in all concert band instruments. The clarinet became my secondary instrument of choice. For the past seven years, I've had the incredible opportunity to teach music classes in public schools across BC. My dedication to education led me to obtain a Masters's Degree in Education, further enhancing my skills as an educator. Despite my teaching responsibilities, I remain deeply connected to my musical roots. I continue to perform at the professional level whenever possible and make it a point to share the joy of music with my students daily. Music remains an integral part of my life, and I am delighted to pass on that passion and knowledge to the next generation of music enthusiasts.
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).
