Teaching Philosophy

Music has always been a passion for me, and I believe it brings happiness to everyone. I believe that learning music creates joy which is an essential part of learning. My goal is to help students achieve this joy and be creative with their music style.

Musical Education

I have studied piano privately from the age of nine until the age of twenty-two. My teacher was classically trained through The Royal Conservatory of Music. I took RCM Level 9 practical exam in which I achieved first class honors and have taken multiple theory exams, which is up to Level 10 harmony for theory.

Awards and Distinctions

RCM practical playing exam Level 8: Honors
RCM practical playing exam Level 9: First class honors
RCM advanced rudiments theory exam: First class honors

Special Skills and Training

I grew up having piano lessons once a week with my piano teacher. In which I have gained advanced knowledge about piano and RCM. My training was primarily with my piano teacher and at home, where I explored my music abilities. I also started to compose my own piano compositions. I have had 5 years of teaching experience where first I was a substitute teacher for my piano teacher. I also taught at a music school for about one and a half years. All my experiences have reinforced my ability to teach and play piano.

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).
