Teaching Philosophy

Music has been with me all of my life and has given me so much in terms of benefits. I feel compelled and inspired to share the gifts of music with others through teaching. Aside from building skills on a particular instrument, music education can help people in so many ways such as keeping the brain sharp, bringing one a feeling of joy and happiness and building confidence in one self, to name a few.

My goal and my aim as a teacher is to constantly and consistently inspire students with a love of music. This is most important, as a love for music is the best motivator to help one achieve their musical goals. I do this through positive reenforcement, minimizing any undue pressure or anxiety. The main takeaway from my music lessons is always the students enjoyment, while fostering their own love of music.

Musical Education

I attended Vancouver Community College from 1999-2001 and studied under their music program. This included classes on performance, theory and classical and jazz harmony. I studied private piano, guitar and bass lessons from the age of 7 until I went to College at age 19. I have studied with many luminaries of the Vancouver and Toronto classical and jazz community. The training was very detail oriented and instilled in me a love for music education. I have performed all over Canada, the US and the United Kingdom, including recordings for BBC and CBC.

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).
