Teaching Philosophy

To me, music is an extension of excitement. Whether you are an avid listener discovering your new favourite artist of the week, to fiddling around on your dad's guitar from 1985, to writing your own love ballad and wailing on the keys. There is always a new feeling, a new genre or a new idea you can discover with music. The world of creativity, expression and freedom that comes from music is exhilarating, and something that is better experienced with others. My job is to help be your compass and help guide you to find your own musical excitement, much like others have done for me.

Musical Education

I studied voice at Grant MacEwan University for 3 years and received two diplomas:

- A Vocal Major Comprehensive Diploma and a
Vocal Major Bachelor of Music Performance Diploma Exit.

My skills acquired include: The ability to write music, perform various genres and styles (such as Jazz, Blues, Pop, Funk, Rock, Singer/Songwriter, Folk etc), the understanding of extensive music theory, ability to transcribe music, extensive ear-training, and completing intermediate training on piano.

I have also been playing guitar for over 10 years, applying my knowledge of theory, composition and self accompaniment during live vocal performances.

Special Skills and Training

One of my main passions is to perform live, and as such the skills I've gained from that go hand in hand with my teachings. For voice in particular, I like to focus on the overall control of your voice. Giving you the tools necessary to sing the way you want, and in turn, discover your own sound. My approach for learning, regardless of instrument, is always hands on and practical. For me growing up, I knew little to no music theory, so when I decided to go to university, I felt like I gained a unique perspective on how to process all of the information that goes into understanding music. I take my time and try to relate the foundations of music in digestible bites so that it does not seem overwhelming or complicated. For example learning how to play piano in university helped better my understanding of playing guitar and made me a better musician.

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).
