Teaching Philosophy

I believe that music is something that is so diverse and unique, whether we realize that or not sometimes. The way that sound is able to interact with one another in our daily lives and surroundings is something that I think we take for granted. Music isn't just picking up an instrument and playing a song- it's about appreciation the way the functions of sound interact with us and with the elements surrounding us that makes it so special and gives us purpose. Purpose is exactly what I strive to teach to my music students- my students can expect that regardless of what their purpose in pursing music is, that I will ensure that my lessons are as meaningful as possible so that students are satisfied and are able to meaningfully connect and enjoy the beauty and pleasures of music.

Musical Education

I have been playing music since I was the age of 5 years old. I first began playing piano by taking private lessons, in which I continued to do so up until I was 17. I have also been playing the French Horn since I was 12 years old. My musical journey has taken me to performing in many bands, including the Edmonton Catbolic Schools All City Band and All Star Jazz Bands, the MacEwan Youth Orchestra, and the University of Alberta Symphonic Wind Ensemble. I am furthering my musical knowledge currently by pursuing a Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Education combined degree, with the goal of being able to work within the education system and help encourage the next generation of students to pursue a passion and career in the arts.

Special Skills and Training

I have been trained in the Royal Conservatory Music in both Theory and in Playing, reaching up to level 9. I have also had the pleasure to work as a tutor within a local company in Edmonton, where I provided piano and drum lessons to students of all different ages. It has been a great opportunity for me to grow as a leader and to be an effective and organized mentor for students.

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).
