Teaching Philosophy

I am a piano and music theory teacher in Surrey with more than 10 years teaching experience. I teach piano with passion, patience, and commitment so we can encourage your child to fully appreciate the beauty of music and sound. In every lesson my goal is to inspire the student and to guide them towards something that they themselves will love and discover. I always try to create a stress-free atmosphere to help students progress. So no matter your age and goal, everyone who loves music are welcome to join me.

Musical Education

I have attended the following schools earning the following degrees:
- Trinity Western University - Bachelor of Arts Major in Music
-Kwantlen Polytechnic University - Diploma in Music
- Royal Conservatory of Music - Grade 10 Piano

Awards and Distinctions

Carillon Music Festival, 2015 Grade 9 Student/Teacher Duet Class Gold Award
Carillon Music Festival, 2017 Junior Student/ Teacher Duet Class Gold Award

Special Skills and Training

For beginners I always want to guide them and encourage all sorts of discovery, for serious students I can provide a good set of teaching program based on the Royal Conservatory syllabus to help them achieve their goals. Through years of teaching, I had students successfully passing auditions and accepted into universities, and others passing their Royal Conservatory of Music exams with honours and distinctions. My students also excel in music festivals and performances. Besides exams I also like to introduce pop songs, movie songs, jazz & blues, duets and more…for more variety of music taste and explore students' interest. I tend to give every student appropriate program based on their individual needs and interests.

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).
