Teaching Philosophy

My piano teaching philosophy emphasizes the development of technical skills, musicality, and creativity in the student. This philosophy involves teaching proper posture and technique, music theory and notation, and encouraging students to practice and develop their musical style regularly. I will assist in tailoring lessons to the individual needs and goals of the student and creating a supportive and positive learning environment.

Musical Education

I attained a Bachelor of Music Degree in Piano Performance from Dalhousie University (Halifax). My teacher was classically trained at the Juilliard School (New York, NY).
My music education refers to the formal and informal teaching and learning of music, including music theory, history, performance, composition, and appreciation. It occurred in various settings, such as schools, conservatories, private lessons, community centers, and churches. I used my music education to develop musical skills and creativity to foster cultural understanding and social engagement.

Awards and Distinctions

I received a scholarship in my first year of university. I also received several awards from the schools music festival.

Special Skills and Training

My brother gave me informal piano training at home. He made me realize that studying piano is a fun and relaxed activity. I was trained under the ABRSM system. I received the highest level in piano and theory in this curriculum. I also joined the school choir, church choir and as an accompanist to other instrumentalists. I entered several competitions for the schools music festival. I learned that developing special skills and training requires collaboration with other musicians, a combination of talents, hard work and opportunities to perform. I have the patience to teach people of different ages and ethnicity because teaching music is my passion.

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).
