Teaching Philosophy

Music has been a constant passion in my life for as long as I can remember. It has helped me create lasting friendships, mentorships, and memories that have helped to shape who I am. My goal as an educator, both as a band teacher and private instructor, is to help students explore their creativity and build their confidence through music. Whether it is building proficiency on an instrument, learning to appreciate music as an art form, or finding a new hobby I truly believe that the power of music can be transformative.

Musical Education

My passion for music began in middle school and quickly blossomed in High School where I was actively involved in concert band, jazz band, and choir. I studied Music Education at the University of Victoria. While trumpet was my primary instrument throughout my years of study, I am proficient in all concert band instruments with the clarinet being my secondary instrument. I have been teaching music classes in public schools in BC for the past seven years and during that time have acquired a Masters's Degree in Education. I still perform music at the professional level as much as possible as well as play music with my students every day.

Special Skills and Training

My training has been both formal through my university degrees as well as having lived through my many musical experiences. I have performed professionally in jazz as well as orchestral settings and I take pride in helping my school bands achieve high scores in festival settings.

Policies


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).
