Teaching Philosophy

As a dedicated piano and music theory teacher in Surrey, I bring over 10 years of teaching experience to my lessons. My approach is rooted in passion, patience, and commitment, with the aim of helping your child develop a deep appreciation for the beauty of music and sound. In each lesson, my goal is to inspire and guide the student towards discovering something they truly love. I believe in creating a stress-free atmosphere to facilitate progress and ensure that all students, regardless of age or goal, feel welcome and encouraged to pursue their musical journey with 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, 2017 Junior Student/ Teacher Duet Class Gold Award

Special Skills and Training

For beginners, my approach is all about fostering a sense of exploration and discovery. I encourage them to delve into the world of music with guidance and support. For serious students, I can offer a structured teaching program based on the Royal Conservatory syllabus, tailored to help them achieve their specific goals. Over the years, I've had the pleasure of guiding students to success in auditions and university placements, as well as achieving outstanding results in Royal Conservatory of Music exams. Beyond exams, I like to bring in a wide range of music styles, including pop songs, movie tracks, jazz, blues, duets, and more, to cater to diverse musical tastes and explore students' interests. Every student receives a personalized program that aligns with their individual needs and passions. My goal is to make the learning journey enjoyable, enriching, and fulfilling for each student.

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).
