Violetta - BAH Teacher #4240

About Violetta
Violetta is a dedicated BAH teacher offering online and in-home lessons in composition, piano, ear training, and music theory from beginner to advanced levels. With over 15 years of teaching experience and RCM teacher music certification, Violetta has a strong classical background and also teaches jazz, country, pop, and classic rock.

As a music teacher, my philosophy centers on the belief that music is a powerful vehicle for personal expression, creativity, and connection. I am dedicated to fostering a supportive and inclusive learning environment where students feel encouraged to explore their musical interests, develop their skills, and discover their unique voice. My teaching methods are student-centered, incorporating a blend of traditional techniques and innovative approaches tailored to the needs and interests of each individual learner. I strive to create engaging and interactive lessons that inspire curiosity, ignite passion, and cultivate a lifelong love of music. Central to my approach is the belief that every student has the potential to excel in music, regardless of their background or level of experience. I am committed to providing a holistic music education that not only focuses on technical proficiency but also fosters creativity, critical thinking, and emotional expression. Ultimately, my goal as a music teacher is to empower students to harness the transformative power of music to enrich their lives, express themselves authentically, and contribute positively to the world around them.

I am very passionate about music and have over 15 years of experience teaching the piano and theory. I have RCM teacher music certification. I have a classical background in piano, however, I teach jazz, country, pop, and classic rock music as well. I have prepared many of my students for recitals, RCM exams, and other performances.

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).
