“Not everyone has the same opportunities or learns in the same way.”
BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH GABRIELLE NOW
Music education is a cornerstone of personal growth, and I've been shaped by it significantly. My joy comes from nurturing students' confidence and identity through the magic of performance. I recognize the individuality of each student and their diverse learning paths. Not everyone has the same opportunities or learns in the same way, so I'm committed to meeting students right where they are. My goal is to cultivate a profound love for music by customizing lessons to each students’ unique needs.
Name: Gabrielle (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I am currently enrolled in the Bachelors of Music program at the University of Calgary where I study flute performance with my teacher, Lucie Jones. I have been studying music since the age of 5, first starting with private piano lessons. After 13 years of piano, I decided to stop lessons in order to focus solely on the flute. I have now been playing the flute for 11 years, and I have taken part in many music programs. I am currently part of the Academy Program for Young Artists at the Mount Royal Conservatory, and have previously been a part of the Conservatory’s Advanced Performance Program as well as the Calgary Youth Orchestra. I have also completed my grade 10 Royal Conservatory of Music exam, receiving the "honours" rating.
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).
