“Learning music should be a joyful and immersive experience.”
BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH EVA NOW
In my teaching philosophy, I believe that learning music should be a joyful and immersive experience. I strive to spark my students' interest and passion for music, making it an enjoyable journey for them. Together, we set clear goals and create a schedule to achieve those objectives while having fun along the way. Whether it's preparing for an RCM test, learning music from their favorite movies, or enhancing their university applications, I tailor the lessons to suit their individual aspirations. For younger children, I recognize the importance of parental involvement in supporting their musical growth. With the right guidance and encouragement, I believe that personal involvement will be the key motivator in their musical learning. My aim is to nurture their love for music and help them find fulfillment in making and engaging with music.
Name: Eva (Full name will be provided upon registration)
In 2020, I achieved the RCM grade 10 piano diploma from the prestigious Royal Conservatory of Music in Canada. This accomplishment signifies that I have successfully mastered all the required material, including musical theory, counterpoint, history, and repertoire up to grade 10 level. I am incredibly proud of this achievement, as it reflects my dedication and passion for music. The journey of reaching this milestone has been filled with learning and growth, and it has laid a strong foundation for my musical pursuits. I am excited to continue my musical journey and explore new horizons. With the knowledge and skills gained through this diploma, I look forward to creating beautiful music and sharing my passion with others. Music has enriched my life in countless ways, and I am eager to spread its joy and beauty to the world.
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).
