Teaching Philosophy

I am passionate about creativity that also celebrates diverse communities. I also enjoy writing all about what I’ve learned in music and movement, as it is so inspiring!

I believe it’s important to keep active and practice as much as you can. Taking time to reflect and really understand one’s talents and goals is key to feeling confident and being successful.

Musical Education

My musical education is from the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Music, where I graduated with honours. I also studied musical theatre and played leading roles, such as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz and Mother Abess in The Sound of Music. I’ve trained in piano, violin, ukulele, voice, choir, as well as African drumming and Taiko (Japanese drums).

All my music teachers devoted a lot of time and effort towards developing my talents and skills, especially opening up opportunities where I could flourish!

Awards and Distinctions

At music festivals and competitions, like Kiwanis, Arts Richmond Hill Music Festival, Ontario Vocal Jazz Festival, and Ontario Registered Music Teachers’ Association Scholarship Recital, I’ve been given awards, including first place!

Special Skills and Training

I enjoy creating music, such as exercises and original songs, as a recording artist. The Suzuki Method trained me to be independent and well-balanced, such that I’m able to take my playing from practicing to performing with a lot of grace and discipline.

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).
