Teaching Philosophy

Music connects everything, which means everybody has a natural perspective of music in their mind. Unfortunately, not many people enjoy the process of learning to experience music wholly.

I always enjoy the feeling when someone else could relate music in their lives. Thus, I teach students to achieve this goal. Being a music instructor for years has equipped me with skills to understand how to meet student's need in music.

Musical Education

I have a Bachelor of Music in Flute Performance from Thompson Rivers University affiliated with Vancouver Academy of Music. At the moment, I am enrolled in Master of Music in Flute Performance at University of British Columbia.

I enjoy my musical education which started since I was little. Aside from playing the Flute, I also learned Piano and Piccolo privately during my spare time. Having the experience to play other instruments has given various perspectives in music-making activities.

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).
