“Music and teaching are two of my favourite things. ”
 - Anna


Music and teaching are two of my favourite things. Teaching music is an enjoyable way to spend my evenings. I believe the child/student should be educated holistically making sure that they grow physically, emotionally, socially, and intellectually. Music can help a child achieve this. In university I researched the impact playing a musical instrument has on the development of the child and found that it does indeed have a major impact, particularly in the areas mentioned.

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

Age: 28

Gender: female

I am a primary school teacher and private instrumental music teacher from Ireland. I have a Bachelor of Education degree from Dublin City University. There I specialized in Music. I studied classical flute, violin and alto saxophone and completed all of my grades with the Royal Irish Academy of Music. I started learning the flute when I was five years old, the violin when I was seven and the saxophone when I was twelve years old. I was a member of Liffey Valley Concert Orchestra for several years and more recently a member of the Brass and Reed band Maynooth. As a teen I was in a Big Band with some fellow musicians from school.

I have been teaching music since I was seventeen years old (10 years). I also teach primary school curriculum music to classes of children aged between four and twelve. I am a trained primary school teacher with four years' experience in the classroom. I have been teaching music for ten years now and have helped my students reach their full potential, with several students achieving distinction results in their Royal Irish Academy of Music examinations.


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).
