Information about Renata

Teaching Philosophy

I believe that every human being is unique in their own way and that music can help them express their feelings. Especially when they have a good connection with their music teacher, they can really learn to appreciate the beauty of the Arts and understand that the Arts can make their life much more precious.

General Info

Name: Renata (Full name will be provided upon registration)

Age: 50's

Gender: female

BAH Teacher No. : 1728


I have my Master's Degree in music performance for violin and piano pedagogy.
I have played in many orchestras around the world including Europe, Israel and North America. I have played with Windsor Symphony Orchestra, Ontario Philharmonic Orchestra, Toronto Sinfonietta, Celebrity Symphony Orchestra, and much more in Ontario.
I have been teaching for 23 years around the GTA.

Special Skills & Training

I have a lot of experience in preparing students for RCM exams, music competitions, festivals and performances.

I adapt my teaching approach to every students' learning style.
I always try to connect with the students at a personal level to get them more comfortable with their playing.

Since I have played in many orchestras and ensembles throughout my music career, I am very knowledgeable of what is required in such settings.

Awards and Distinctions

When I was studying back home in Latvia (former Soviet Union), I won many competitions within my school (special music school) and with my University of Music (Conservatory of Music).

Rates and Policies

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).
