Teaching Philosophy

Music and rhythm are elemental parts of my life and I strongly believe that learning an instrument gives a person a creative outlet for their thoughts and feelings throughout life. We all have rhythm and the ability to recognize patterns around us, from the pace of our stride and heartbeat to the changing of seasons and weather. We can all observe changes in our environment and focus on specific elements to inform our decisions. In my lessons, I emphasize the importance of listening skills and visualization to develop an understanding of rhythms.

Challenges can be fun if you treat them like a game. I introduce musical concepts to my students in a positive and encouraging manner. Whether a young child or an adult student, lessons with me are informative without being overwhelming. Drums really are a lot of fun!

Special Skills and Training

My childhood home was filled with music: classical, rock, blues and jazz. My brother played the bass and I was always curious about percussion and timbres. This lead to private drum lessons from age 11. This helped me gain an understanding of fundamentals as I honed my technical skills in the orchestra later, at my high school. After graduating, I continued to build my skills performing at countless venues around the city and province. I recently completed my Certificate in Jazz Performance with honours from Humber College and I am currently earning a Bachelor in Music at Humber College. I have worked extensively as a performer and I have 3 years of accredited teaching experience.

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).
