My passion for music has always been a driving force in my life, and I am convinced that it has the power to bring happiness to every soul it touches. To me, joy is an integral aspect of the learning process, especially when it comes to music. My ultimate aim as a teacher is to inspire my students to experience the pure joy of making music and to nurture their creativity in developing their unique musical styles. Through a supportive and encouraging learning environment, I am dedicated to guiding my students on a transformative journey where they can find their own musical voice and unleash the magic of music in their lives.

Name: Amelia (Full name will be provided upon registration)

Age: 28

Gender: female

From the age of nine to twenty-two, I dedicated myself to private piano studies under the guidance of a classically trained teacher from The Royal Conservatory of Music. During this time, I successfully completed the RCM Level 9 practical exam with first-class honors, showcasing my commitment to excellence in piano performance. Additionally, I pursued multiple theory exams, reaching up to Level 10 harmony, further solidifying my understanding of the theoretical aspects of music. These years of diligent study have shaped my passion for piano and ignited my desire to share the beauty of music with others.

My musical journey began with weekly piano lessons, where I acquired advanced knowledge about piano and the Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM) curriculum. Under the guidance of my piano teacher, supplemented by exploration at home, I delved into various aspects of music and even started composing my own piano pieces. As my passion for music grew, I embraced teaching, gaining five years of valuable experience. It all started as a substitute teacher for my own piano instructor, and later I had the privilege of teaching at a music school for about one and a half years. Through these experiences, I have honed my teaching skills and further solidified my abilities as a pianist, reinforcing my dedication to both teaching and playing the piano.

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).

Online lessons

Amelia 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.
