Teaching Philosophy

I present an impactful musical experience to audiences and students in the greater Montreal area. A versatile musician, I find myself comfortable as a performer, collaborator, and pedagogue presenting a dynamic repertoire and adaptable approach to pedagogy. My repertoire ranges from the Baroque era to the present contemporary era. My personal pedagogy is focused on creating a positive and encouraging environment to foster intellectual growth and development in my students.

Musical Education

Master of Music - McGill University
Bachelor of Music - Florida State University

Awards and Distinctions

In 2014 and 2015, our teacher was a semi-finalist and finalist in the McGill Chamber Music Competition respectively. In the summer of 2015, Taylor received a fellowship to attend the National Repertory Orchestra in Breckenridge, Colorado.

Special Skills and Training

Our teacher earned a Master of Music in violin performance from the Schulich School of Music of McGill University in Montreal, Canada under the esteemed pedagogue Axel Strauss. Previously, Taylor graduated from the Florida State University with a Bachelor of Music under the tutelage of a previous concertmaster of the New York Philharmonic, Eliot Chapo.

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).
