Teaching Philosophy

I have been taught by more than one type of teacher so I am aware of the different ways of teaching depending on age/level/interests of students. I have taught a lot in the past but not just piano (Math and Tennis as well) so I really excel when it comes to communicating the way i think and the fastest, most efficient ways of learning. I believe rewarding and motivating the students are exceptionally important especially at a young age.

Musical Education

I have completed all ABRSM grades in piano (1-8) having done my last exam in New York City when i was grade 11 in high school. I also completed Theory grades(1-5). I am currently an engineering student at UoftT but my love for teaching and music has me looking for positions like this one.

Awards and Distinctions

I do not have any awards, however, with every piano grade i did, I either passed with merit(120-130/150) or distinction (130+/150). I have performed two pieces on stage once for about a 100 people. In grades 5 and 6 we had a little school band that played for the school's annual musical play (Lion King and Oliver Twist) and I was lead drummer.

Special Skills and Training

Before playing the piano, I started out with a surprise of a drum set in my room coming back from a summer vacation. I was already into the music seen. I would sit down for hours in my room having my favourite album on repeat and beating an arabic hand drum constantly and rhythmically until my hands went red. My uncle was in a band back home so he was the one that inspired and taught me how to play the drums. I have about a 100 voice recordings on my phone of beatboxing and rhythm humming. I am really creative so whenever i think of a beat or rhythm, I record it (so i do not forget it) and get back to my piano to play it.

There is a one-time registration fee of 25 $ charged with the first lessons. All Taxes are included in prices, if applicable

NOTE: Your Credit card will be charged ONLY when the first lesson is set up and confirmed with the teacher


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).
