My teaching philosophy is to provide the life long gift of music to students by recognizing and helping the student develop their musical child within.

Name: Chih-Lin (Full name will be provided upon registration)

Age: 50's

Gender: female

I have BFA in music with distinction and a MA in music therapy from Concordia University. I am a good standing music therapist under Canadian Association of Music Therapist. I studied both piano and Chinese harp (zither) privately from the age of five until the age of 18. The formal music education in college and university broaden my knowledge not only in technical performing skills but more in music education and therapy.

*Selected to be artistic director of Canadian Oriental of Fine Arts *Obtained the prize of commissioning a Canadian Composer from Canadian Art council

During my intern of becoming accredited music therapist, I developed the skill of designing a personal plan for my clients to achieve the goals. The goal can be very simple as to learn a song in one month, or simple to feel the stable beat in rhythm. My over 30 years music teaching at my private studio gives me the opportunity to well receive students from different cultural background to meet the students needs.




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

Chih-Lin 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.
