Music is an art that is shared and enjoyed by you and those around you, no matter the age of the individual(s). It’s good for the soul, and an incomparable joy to learn and immerse yourself in. I believe that music teaches the individual self-discipline as well as self confidence. It will allow them to pursue a passion that can serve as a source of inspiration for living life fully which, in turn, will inspire others.

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

Age: 24

Gender: female

Ever since I was very young, music was a big part of my family, and I benefited a great deal when I started piano lessons at the age of 7. At the age of 10, I took up classical guitar. A few years later, as a young person who was eager to learn, I learned how to play trumpet in a marching band. At the end of 6 weeks, I was awarded the Excellence Award from the Director of the Kingston Military College himself. From then on, I pursued the trumpet profusely under the guidance of respectable Canadian trumpet teachers Jocelyn Couture and Lex French. I received my Bachelor’s in Jazz Performance at McGill University (Entrance Scholarship) in December of 2022 and am known in the Montreal music scene with the brass band that I lead. I will be applying for a Master’s at McGill University this coming winter.

In my career up until now, I have played in many concerts and festivals (notably, Montreal Jazz Fest 2 years in a row) and collaborated on studio recordings with a diverse number of notable musicians and groups in Quebec, Ontario and Nova Scotia. I have as well had the experience of being a music educator in daycares for children ages 18 months to 4 years old, and a private music teacher for kids in elementary and early high school. I hope to build my reputation in Montreal as a reliable and fun musician!

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).
