Teaching Philosophy

I firmly believe that music holds an integral position in our society because it inspires people to become better versions of themselves. Studying music has many benefits which include improved learning skills, encouraging self-discipline, providing a challenge to focus your efforts on, and improved health. As the teacher, it is my job to create a musical foundation for the student so they can eventually discover their own love/passion for music. And as each student learns differently, I personalize each and every lesson so that the student can learn effectively. I make my lessons as fun and engaging as possible while also providing the framework for technical and musical growth.

Musical Education

I have been teaching introductory to advanced level piano for more than 4 years, and it is something that I love to do. A bit of backstory about me... I started playing piano at the age of 5, and since then, I've always had a connection with the instrument. In 2017, I studied piano performance at the University of Alberta, where I have been apart of many ensembles, masterclasses, and competitions. Although playing music was a big part of my life, I also found great joy in teaching piano, and have since taught over 45 students at music schools across Edmonton. I hope to share my knowledge, patience, and dedication to students at BAH.

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).
