Teaching Philosophy

Learning music is not just playing the notes from the music. You learn important elements for the social aspect. You learn how to listen, how to communicate,and how to be patient. Ear training is a big part of the music lessons. Not only from your playing but also your teachers, peers and even from the recordings. You will develop the skills that will teach you what to listen to, how to listen to and picking up the details in the music. Playing music requires ensemble skills. There are some solo music, but a lot of the time, you would need to play together in duo, chamber or orchestra setting. You learn how to breath together and how to discuss together. Through playing in an ensemble, you develop teamwork skills.Learning music requires a lot of patience. This is obvious with 4-6 year old beginners. They cannot even stand in one spot for 30 minutes on their first lesson, but as the lessons go on, you see how they progress from 3 minutes to 30 minutes.
Also, music brings you joy. Learning at any age, you get joy out of the life.
I love teaching and seeing students build their musical abilities and I believe that learning music will help make a more well-rounded person.

Through my musical training, I had always thought I would be an orchestra player. Right after I graduated from my artist diploma, I got a job in an orchestra as Principal 2nd violinist. The job included with playing in the orchestra and teaching at a conservatory. I had 8 students to start and an year later, I realized I have really enjoyed teaching. The next summer, I enrolled myself into a Suzuki teacher training program.

Rates and Policies

Rates and Studio Policies

Registration Fee: $25.00 (One-time lifetime registration fee may be used by all family members)

Rates for instruction:

30 minute private lesson: $39.00
45 minute private lesson: $49.00
60 minute private lesson: $59.00

Travel charge: additional $15.00 per visit (for lessons in a client's home as opposed to my studio)

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).
