Teaching Philosophy

In my lessons, I make sure all my students learn to play their instruments easily and without any strain. I believe that playing music should be a fun and lifelong journey. That's why I teach the idea of "effortless effort," which helps with better control, musicianship, and most importantly, enjoyment! For my younger students, I pick songs that match their skills and keep an eye out for any areas they might need to work on. With my more experienced students, I help them play music that builds on what they already know, so they're always learning something new. My goal is for every student to feel like they've achieved or learned something new in every lesson.
With my younger students, I select repertoire according to their proficiencies while always on the look out for technical/musical "blindspots." With my experienced students, I assist them in playing music that builds on or improves their prior skill-sets, so that their musical learning experiences are continuously expanding.

I strive for having my students sense they have accomplished or learned something new in every lesson.

There is a one-time registration fee of 25 $ charged with the first lessons. All Taxes are included in prices, if applicable

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).
