BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH HANNAH NOW
Music is one of the most important tools in my life for well-being, joy, freedom, and creative expression. I believe singing is a gift that anyone with a voice can claim. Using it can make you feel confident, joyful, connected to yourself and others, and can even feel like flying when everything is working properly. This is accomplished in my studio with emphasize on engaging the body and breath in order to create effortless and healthy singing techniques. We stretch the voice consistently to reach new levels of range, endurance, and sound quality without pushing the voice past its limits. The joy of using and perfecting the voice you were born with, and sharing it through story-telling and melody is my passion and privilege. Children and adults alike are welcome to join me on this adventure!
Name: Hannah (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I have a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Alberta in Vocal Performance. This education included performing in University Opera's and master classes as well as a solo Junior and Senior recital. My teachers included Soprano Sherry Steele and Tenor John Tessier, as well as diction coach and collaborative pianist Shannon Hiebert. I have been studying voice since age 8 and have performed in local and provincial festivals as well as community musical theatre.
I graduated with distinction in my music program. I also received the Vienna Opera Ball Society Scholarship at the University of Alberta
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).
