“I transpose the music and songs that my students love according to the level they are. That's why they love the piano and our lessons are fun!”
 - Begum


In my opinion, Art and music a feel-good therapy that people should enjoy. I taught vocal, choir, and piano in classical music for 5 years. As for voice training, I can only teach choir and classical (aria, lied, oratorio, cantata) songs. I worked with preschool, primary school, middle school, and high school students. For this reason, I have mastered the sound structure of each age group. I love music very much. especially, I love working with children. It is very important for me that my students are willing to attend the lesson and have a good time. For this reason, In order to make students love the piano, I transpose their favorite songs according to their own level. I'm doing new studies on this and I'm thinking of publishing my own piano book. My goal as a teacher is to teach students how to recognize their instruments. Since I am aware of anxiety and learning difficulties, you can be sure that it will be a fun and comfortable training where making mistakes and laughing is not a problem.

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.
