Teaching Philosophy

In my opinion Music is one of the last forms of magic that we still have in this world. It's this belief that inspires my teaching and I believe the journey of music never really ends. My students are encouraged to progress their technical proficiency while also emphasizing the important of creativity and play. Although exceptionally rare, the times in which I feel I have failed as a teacher are those in which I cannot foster a genuine and innate desire in my students to practice and improve. Learning an art should be fun and engaging, not dry and monotonous.

Musical Education

I learned piano initially from my mother until I was 8 then learned from Lauren McInnes, a certified conservatory adjudicator until I was 18. Around the age of 15 I began to self teach myself guitar aswell as baritone and voice. I myself reached the RCM grade 9 level and passed my exam.

Special Skills and Training

Hahaha at the last line of the example. Poor actors! That aside, here are a few factors that I feel make me a unique musical educator. I have a musical career myself, having released multiple full length albums under various monikers I have a solid understanding of musical production, composition, arrangement and styles. I am a member of the LGBTQ community and as such can offer a comfortable option to those who would prefer being taught by a fellow community member. It has been stated by multiple people on many occasions that my love of music is in a league of it's own, just shy of obsession haha


30 Minutes: $39.00
45 Minutes: $49.00
60 Minutes: $59.00

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).
