Teaching Philosophy

Alice is passionate about sharing her musical knowledge and experience and has been teaching music since 2003. In her lessons, Alice strongly emphasizes proper body and hand positioning which leads to a relaxed and natural way of playing the instrument.

Lessons are mainly built on the student's level and interest with the incorporation of fundamental piano techniques. She is familiar with teaching a wide range of repertoire from Classical to fun playing Animé. Students will have the opportunity to develop their musicianship through some ear training and sight-reading exercises.

Alice has been actively preparing her students for the RCM and the McGill Conservatory piano exams when they have requested this from her and she takes pride in this preparation with her students.

She is a caring and open-minded teacher who can relate to students of all ages. She also encourages students to share their own musical ideas and compositions. She believes great teachers also learn from their students!

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).
