Teaching Philosophy

I can't wait to meet you and help you begin your musical journey! For the last almost ten years teaching music, my priority is ensuring that my students feel safe, empowered, creative and heard. I believe that music education carries a great number of life skills, from time management to interpersonal skills, and also learning confidence and self-esteem. I make sure that when I am working with my students, we are exploring every facet that music education has to offer. I specialize in working with students who may have unique learning or behavioural needs, and typically work with people who are just coming to music for the first time. Please get in touch if you have any questions!

Musical Education

I have a Bachelor's Degree with Honours in French Horn Performance at the University of Toronto, and completed my grade 8 in Piano with Conservatory Canada after having studied piano from age 6. I have experience working in orchestral, solo, recording and chamber music performance and have studied advanced music theory, musical skills and music history through my education. In addition to this, I am alumni of the National Youth Orchestra of Canada as well as the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra, and was a member of the University of Toronto Symphony Orchestra for four years.

Special Skills and Training

As well as being a musician, I am also a mental health wellness counsellor, certified life coach, life skills facilitator, lecturer and workshop facilitator. I have a background in crisis response and mental health crisis intervention. My teaching brings relevant components from this training to make sure that everyone I work with is treated with respect and care. I ensure there is always emphasis on compassion, co-creative teaching, as well as focus on mental and physical wellbeing. If you are interested in mental skills, inspiration and creativity, healthy practicing, performance preparation or peak performance in either coaching or lesson settings, please reach out to me.

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).
