Teaching Philosophy

From the beginning of the world, music has been an important element in different dynasties, places, societies and individuals. It just happened that music has become a significant part of my being. I can say more, it modified my personality. If you think that music can simply train you to play any instrument, then you are right. However, it's not as simple as that. Music is a key to all the doors of the world: It changes a person making him kind and honest, what is so lacking in this world; without music, the world would be silent and dreary, music enfolds you in a blanket of comfort, giving you inspiration in moments of loneliness and sorrow. I want to change the view of the world of every child by introducing music in their life and create a gateway, in which one can empower to create a world of imagination and sensitivity. My aim is not only to develop knowledge and creativity but create values of determination, perseverance and understanding. I know that valuable piano lessons will enhance daily achievements, supporting positive feelings: joyfulness, enthusiasm, inspiration, thoughtfulness.

Musical Education

I have graduated from the following schools earning the following degrees:
-Samarkand Music School#1
-Samarkand College of Art- Bachelor of Music
-Samarkand Institute of Foreign Languages-Bachelor of art
-Samarkand Institute of Foreign Languages-Master of Art
-RCM Teacher Certification

I have been studied piano for 11 years, which makes me feel proud. The last four years were particularly fruitful and challenging in my life. I had a great chance to get a strong education from a prominent Russian (Saint Peterburg) musician and pianist George Alexandrovich. My mentor once told me: "One fine day, you will figure out that nothing can be more absolute and beautiful than music".
Besides, I am an accompanist and had an opportunity to work as a concertmaster for vocal students, folk national instruments and string instruments in Uzbekistan and Canada.
Furthermore, I performed in various concerts and performances in Uzbekistan.

Policies


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).
