Teaching Philosophy

I believe everyone has moments when they can’t communicate how they feel. And it’s in those moments when we need something more powerful than just words to connect us with those around us and to find a way to express ourselves. The thing that is more powerful is music. Once you learn an instrument, you’ve created a whole new way to express yourself, a whole new way to connect with others. And when you think that you’re alone and when no one else is there, music can always be just the thing that you need it to be.

Musical Education

I’ve studied many different instruments in private lessons at Resonate Music School and my school. In private I have studied voice, guitar, piano, ukulele and violin and in school I have studied Euphonium, double bass, flute, saxophone (alto and tenor), and piccolo. I’ve studied all of these classically except for guitar and ukulele those were contemporary. My major instrument is voice which I will be getting my ARCT this year. For voice I have been trained by many different teachers and have learned to sing in 6 different languages. And although I prefer classical I am more then qualified to teach jazz and contemparary. I have also sang with various choirs such as John Cameron Entertainment and Cantilon’s Chamber choir.

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).
