Teaching Philosophy

I am passionate about providing students with enjoyable lessons which they can look forward to each week. I have been extremely lucky to have fantastic teachers that have inspired me to become the musician that I am today. I make this my main priority. I do not have a set lesson plan and do not believe that one lesson fits all. I cater each lesson the the students needs and I find that this allows the student to progress at an incredible speed. I attribute my 100% pass rate in ABRSM grade exams to this philosophy.

Special Skills and Training

I have extensive training in many types of music performance and training. I have been working as a private piano tutor for 5 years and during this time have also had the opportunity to teach in South Africa and India. I have also been trained as a workshop leader and have lead outreach projects throughout the UK and India. I have also taken pedagogy classes at both the Purcell School of Music and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, London.

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).
