Teaching Philosophy

My experience as a Music Teacher has developed a passion and personal commitment to three things:
Fostering a positive learning environment for students with various backgrounds, developing students performing level and conducting a creative lesson while focusing on correct technique.

Musical Education

I studied both Violin & Piano from the age of 4 and joined the Philharmonic Orchestra of Sri Lanka at the age of 13. I obtained my Diploma in Violin performance (LRSM) and Advanced certificate in Piano Performance form The Royal Schools of Music, UK & Diploma in violin performance (LGSM) from The Guild Hall School of Music, UK.

Awards and Distinctions

In 1998 I Won the “String category” British and International Federation of Festivals for Music, Dance, and Speech; I was awarded a scholarship to attend orchestral training camp directed by Andrew Sherwood in Hertfordshire, UK. I also Won orchestral training string quartet composition competition.
I was the Gold and silver medalist in string, piano, and woodwind category for Descant Recorder, Violin & Piano in Sri Lanka's Ministry of Education's All Island Music competition.

Special Skills and Training

I have consistently helped students achieve high exam scores & I enjoy teaching both children and adults while using the traditional method of teaching & incorporating Suzuki method. I have also been teaching online lessons for almost two years.

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).
