For me, the key to effective piano teaching is truly understanding the student and their unique learning style. I tailor my approach to meet their individual needs, ensuring a personalized and engaging learning experience. Building a solid foundation is crucial, and I like to make learning fun and interactive through games, activities, and various tools. This approach not only strengthens their basics but also keeps them excited about the journey. One of my main goals is to instill perseverance and a positive mindset in my students, vital qualities for success in music and beyond. I want them to develop a deep love and connection with the music they play, making their musical journey fulfilling and enriching. I strongly believe that music education knows no age boundaries, and I am passionate about teaching students of all ages and backgrounds. Whether a beginner or an experienced player, I am open and enthusiastic about guiding them on their musical path.

Name: Annie (Yen Yen) (Full name will be provided upon registration)

Age: 24

Gender: female

I began my musical journey with piano group lessons at the young age of 4, eventually transitioning to private lessons at 8. Music has been a lifelong passion for me, and I found immense joy in ensemble performances, especially while playing in our high school band and accompanying the choir. Alongside piano, I also play the flute, guitar, and enjoy singing. My dedication to music led me to graduate with a Music Diploma from Capilano University and later receive a Bachelors of Music from UBC. Throughout my studies, I had the privilege of training under talented instructors like David McCoy and Patricia Hoy, which allowed me to graduate with Distinctions from both universities. My musical journey has been incredibly rewarding, and I'm eager to share my love for music with others.

Capilano University Scholarship Competition 1st (2019)& 2nd(2018) Prize

Having grown up immersed in music and exploring various instruments, I find the utmost joy in passing on that passion to my students. Apart from my teaching endeavors, I've been actively involved in music competitions, securing several scholarships, and have had the privilege of performing and accompanying at local music festivals and friends' weddings. To continually enhance my teaching abilities, I am currently pursuing RCM certification in pedagogy, with a strong desire to refine my skills and offer the best possible musical education to my students. Music has been an integral part of my life, and I'm dedicated to inspiring others on their musical journey and sharing the joy it brings.

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).
