Teaching Philosophy

Without music the richest child is poor! I love teaching music. from

I enjoy working with students all ages, all levels, all abilities (my front walk is
wheel chair accessible). Experience has taught me to keep progressively learning and opening my mind to all possibilities and voice has opened me to the latest hits.

My whole life is music and children keep me young and invigorted! I find their dedication to learning incredible.

As a teacher I offer patience to all, compassion, understanding, encouragement and always with positive feedback.

I maintain a positive attitude and alway keep up to the times, trends and energy needed to make it fun as well as informative.

Musical Education

Awards and Distinctions

My school teaching days are past where I got standing ovations. My greatest distinction is with the parents who keep coming back for me to give one-to-one instruction.

Special Skills and Training

I have mentioned most of them above and love to sing or play duets with the children. Training their ears or voice to match an interval and not be off a semitone and to give my gifts and talents with love, is my love.

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).
