My love for music began at an early age, always singing along to the radio in the car, being actively involved in youth orchestras and choirs and taking piano lessons. From the age of twelve something changed, and I never had to be told to practice again. It was at that moment I realized music was a way of life, and I could not live any other way. As a teacher, I tailor my lessons to the needs of each student, working towards their goals and interests. I am also careful to include the parents in the decision-making process, so that steady progress is achieved. I encourage students to perform regularly, because sharing beautiful music with family and loved ones is the heart of our purpose. Whether through recitals, festivals, or at-home performances, I ensure that my students have opportunities to share their progress and the music that they love.

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

Age: 23

Gender: male

I received my Bachelor of Music (Honours) from Wilfrid Laurier University, studying under Dr. Heather Taves and Anya Alexeyev. Currently, I am attending the University of Manitoba for my Master in Music Performance, studying with Dr. Judy Kehler-Siebert and Dr. Laura Loewen. I began my private piano studies at the age of four until entering university. My teachers were two Canadian classically trained pianists, one of whom was also an operatic soprano, and one who obtained an Master of Music in piano performance from the University of Toronto. I also studied with a Bosnian pianist, who was rigorous in his instruction, and developed my love for the instrument. Additionally, I have significant experience as a choral singer, orchestral bass player, and accompanist/coach.

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).
