Teaching Philosophy

Recital Summer 2019.jpg

I have been teaching voice, piano, and violin since 2010, and I love sharing music with others!  I teach a variety of styles for all instruments.  My higher education studies are in vocal performance with a focus on classical music, opera, and art song, but a lot of my vocal students work on musical theater and popular repertoire.  My piano students also play a variety of styles, and I teach many to play and sing at the same time!  I currently teach beginner violin students as well.

 

I treat every student with respect, and I truly enjoy getting to know them as well. I like to have fun in my lessons, but I also have years of training and musical knowledge to impart to my students.  I am well versed in vocal pedagogy (the science of vocal production), and I use this education to promote healthy singing!

 

I teach students of all ages and abilities in the LA area. We also hold two studio recitals every year. Please contact me for more information regarding lessons.

Cancellations

 

Student Cancellation Policy

 

Out with 24-hour’s notice

Monthly tuition reserves your lesson slot and the instructor’s time each week. If lessons are missed or cancelled by the student for any reason, tuition will not be refunded. The student will be allowed to reschedule a courtesy make-up lesson within the same month if 24-hour’s notice has been given to the instructor.  Belinda Jimenez Voice & Piano Studio does not guarantee a makeup lesson. If no agreeable make-up time can be found, the lesson will be forfeited. Billing will not be affected by lessons cancelled with more than 24-hour’s notice.

 

Out without 24-hour’s notice

Lessons that are cancelled with less than 24-hour’s notice will be forfeited. Billing will not be affected by lessons cancelled with less than 24-hour’s notice.

 

Instructor Cancellation Policy

 

Lessons cancelled by the instructor will be made up within the same month at a time agreeable to the instructor and student.

 

If no agreeable time can be found, lessons will be credited to the next month’s invoice.

 

Holidays

 

It is the student’s responsibility to notify Belinda Jimenez Voice & Piano Studio if there will be an absence due to a holiday.  If notice is received more than 24 hours before the scheduled lesson, the student is eligible for a makeup lesson.

 

Lesson Etiquette

 

Lesson Preparation

As a courtesy, please put your phone on silent during the lesson. Come prepared each week with your music, water, a pencil, and a recording device.

 

Tardiness

The lesson shall not be extended past the scheduled end time if the student arrives late to the lesson. If the student is late by 15 minutes or more, the lesson is considered an “out without 24-hour’s notice” and is forfeited. Please make every effort possible to notify the instructor of any tardiness.

 

Illness

Please do not come to a lesson if you are sick. It is bad form to share your germs with other musicians!  If you are ill, please contact Belinda Jimenez Voice & Piano Studio as soon as possible.  Belinda Jimenez Voice & Piano Studio reserves the right to cancel a lesson without refund or a makeup lesson if the student arrives sick. If Belinda Jimenez Voice & Piano Studio receives more than 24-hour’s notice of the cancellation, you are eligible for a makeup lesson as per the cancellation policy.

 

Termination of Lessons

 

I look forward to a long-term relationship with you; however, termination of this agreement by the student shall be made in writing to the instructor with 30 days’ notice.  If the student is a minor, termination of this agreement shall be written by the parent or guardian of the student. Students are responsible for payment during the 30 days until the agreement is officially terminated.  Notice may be received in writing via email to Belinda Jimenez Voice & Piano Studio (belindamusicstudio@gmail.com).

 

Belinda Jimenez Voice & Piano Studio reserves the right to terminate this agreement for reasons including, but not limited to, inappropriate behavior, repeated late payment, or other reason as deemed appropriate by Belinda Jimenez Voice & Piano Studio.

I look forward to making music with you!
