BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH JEAN NOW
As someone who has worked with people of various ages, I strongly believe that it is never too late to start learning an instrument. My aim as an instructor is to share my passion for music and inspire others.
Name: Jean (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I began piano lessons at the age of four and fell in love with the instrument ever since. Under the guidance of skilled and inspiring teachers, I gained valuable experience as a musician. In the past, I have participated in music festivals, masterclasses, collaborated with orchestras and instrumentalists, as well as sang in choirs. I have also completed RCM Piano Level 10 and RCM Theory exams. Currently, I am pursuing a Bachelor of Music degree at the University of British Columbia. I hope to become a full-time music teacher as I find it very enjoyable to work and teach others.
I have experience teaching both children and adults music and through these experiences, I discovered the joy and fulfillment that teaching brought me. Specifically, I loved to see my students grow and progress under my guidance. In addition, I have certifications for RCM Level 10 Piano, ARCT Harmony and Counterpoint, and ARCT Analysis. I hope to share my knowledge with others whether it be piano lessons or theory lessons.
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).
