“Music is not only a fantastic academic tool but also a wonderful channel to maintain mental and emotional health. ”
 - Guylaine


I strongly believe that music education is an essential part to maintain a healthy life style. It is not only a fantastic academic tool but also a wonderful channel to maintain mental and emotional health. Music lessons can inspire to learned discipline through short term goals and raise anyone self esteem, which is essential to the success of any human being.

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

Age: 50's

Gender: female

I achieved a pian teaching Rcm certificate for elementary and intermediate level. I also achieved a grade 8 flute Rcm exam. I studied piano with Yolande Charbonneau and Tania Granata. My teachers we’re very knowledgeable and motivated. I studied flute with Milenna Krassis, she had a solid knowledge of the instrument and did not neglect any details to give me an optimum musical experience.

In my teens I participate in many competitions. I won the composition category two years in a row at Découverte in Prescott Russell. I also won many prizes at the festival of Ontario Quebec. I was a semi finalist at the CTV television show Homegrown Cafe. I was also a finalist at Ontario Pop on French CBC which was broadcast across Canada

I have been teaching music in the French elementary schools of Eastern Ontario for many years. At age 13 I became the second organist of my church in St-Isidore Ontario. I participated in many choir and also started to compose my own songs in my early teens.



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

Guylaine 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.
