Laura - Music Teacher # 2026
Together we will learn to reach the next milestone, and the next until the piano piece flows flawlessly from your fingertips.
Information about Laura
I am a reader, a visual learner, and a lifelong learner. If your child is an auditory learner, then perfect: I will be making sure they hear the right notes the first time. We live in a wonderful age where nearly every music piece is available online.
What matters is that you and/or your child learns to pay attention (in loving kindness) to themselves, to the piano (music), and to me. Together we will learn to reach the next milestone, and the next until the piano piece flows flawlessly from your fingertips. Unfortunately, the process is not entirely stress-free, and I like to motivate my student. The learning curve is, of course, more efficient when the student already knows how to apply themselves. Catering to the student's preferences and delights acts as an entry point to fueling their musical appetites.
The most important thing that I can teach you is how to practice. Sufficient preparation typically overcomes all challenges. And you might even relax enough to enjoy the process in a spiritual way.
Name: Laura (Full name will be provided upon registration)
BAH Teacher No. : 2026
University of Alberta - Bachelor of Music
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).
