My teaching philosophy is REALLY simple. Students. Are. My. Priority. Always.

Name: Andrea (Andi) (Full name will be provided upon registration)

Age: 40's

Gender: female

I hold a Bachelor of Arts, and I am pursuing my Master of Arts degree starting in September of 2022. I also hold a general studies degree, with studies focusing on music history, speech, poetry and psychology. I have studied music, drama and art at the University level, and have studied education. I also hold a Brain Story certificate, issued by the Government of Alberta. In my earlier years of music study, I was trained at the Royal Conservatory of music for voice and clarinet.

I have won awards, yes. I don’t care about MY awards, but I can brag ALL day long about my student’s awards and achievements.I brag about my students non stop; my art students, my drama students, my voice students; they’re ALL pretty magically talented people with killer creative instincts. THAT’s my greatest award.

I specialize in instilling confidence in my students. I prioritize trust over everything, and building a strong connection, foundation and rapport. I am a very versatile voice teacher, I have a very wide breadth of knowledge, experience and education regarding musical styles, associated history and theory. My strengths are in production and performance, and I enjoy taking students on a musical journey, and being a part of their growth from beginner to professional. I have produced over 25 concerts, two which have been featured on CMT and the W Network, and they are all for charity. I am a stage performer and professional singer, and I also sing the national anthem for our WHL hockey team. I provide students with any performing opportunities that I can, and I train them for competitions, festivals, concerts, adjudications and public appearances and interviews. My students are the stars, not me. I just get to be a part of their musical journey, which is the best job in the world. Period.






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

Andrea (Andi) 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.
