 - Daniel


Being a musician isn't just something you do, it's something you are. Every individual has a deep, personal connection with music that lives within them, and as a music teacher my fundamental aim is striving to help them hear and express it in each their own way.

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

Age: 30's

Gender: male

As a graduate of Carleton University, I have a Bachelor of Music degree in piano performance with honors in composition. I've studied piano for approximately 18 years within the Royal Conservatory of Music curriculum completing my grade 8 certification, receiving First Class Honors with each of my examination results, with additional post-secondary studies in grade 9, 10 and ARCT Royal Conservatory repertoire and technique.

2016 Carleton University Chamber Music Award

My passion for music and piano has seen me perform extensively at Cornwall's Kinsmen Music Festival, as well as Ottawa's Canadian Music Showcase and Gala, and Carleton University Chamber Ensemble concerts to even achieving provincial finalist in the Ontario Music Festivals Association competition. I have also composed original music for over 10 years for media projects in film/TV and video games, some of which has been featured in Saskatchewan's Yorkton Film Festival and on CBC. Additionally, I have directed music with a church ministry choir of 10-15 people, leading rehearsals and Sunday music services. These areas of performing, composing and directing have allowed me to view music in many different lights, gaining unique perspectives that span a wide range of musical avenues that I apply in my lessons. It is my hope that my students find these perspectives useful when understanding their own music, so that they may experience the reward and joy of progress and expression.


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).
