“Through music, we can foster personal growth, build confidence, and experience pure enjoyment.”
BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH AARON NOW
Music holds a special place in my heart, and I'm eager to share this passion with others by taking on the role of a music teacher. Through music, we can foster personal growth, build confidence, and experience pure enjoyment. Even as I transition into a career in law, my commitment to music remains unwavering. My aim is to inspire those around me with the same fervor I feel for this universal language.
Name: Aaron (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I began my music education at St. Michael's Choir School, in Toronto. One of six schools world-wide affiliated with the Pontifical Institute of Sacred Music in Rome, we had world class teachers in both vocal and piano pedagogy. While I attained my Grade 10 RCM during my studies there, I wished to go further; during my undergraduate degree, I decided to pursue both Music and Law. Now that I am in law school, much of what I do revolves around music and intellectual property too! I've also had more time recently to re-learn most of the program for my ARCT, which I plan on receiving within the next year.

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).
Aaron can provide online instruction. While other platforms are possible BAH strongly recommends the use of the Zoom video conferencing platform as it is optimized for music lessons and audio quality.
