BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH JENN NOW
Music holds a special place in my heart as it has always been my avenue for expression and relaxation. Throughout my journey as a student, I immersed myself in the rich history of music, learning about the powerful stories it conveys and the inspiring individuals who share them. Now, as a teacher, I am driven to ignite that same spark of inspiration in my pupils and help them cultivate their unique connection and passion for piano and music. In my lessons, I strive to create a friendly and serene learning environment where my students feel comfortable being themselves and asking questions. I firmly believe that a caring and nurturing atmosphere is essential for fostering growth and progress. Each session begins with gentle finger warmups, setting the stage for productive practice. We then delve into repertoire studies and explore theoretical concepts, gradually transitioning to more comprehensive aspects like rhythmic clapping, music notation writing, and reading. By encompassing a well-rounded approach, I aim to instill a deep understanding and appreciation for music in my students, equipping them with the tools they need to flourish on their musical journey.
Name: Jenn (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I am a certified Intermediate Piano Pedagogy graduate from the esteemed Royal Conservatory of Music. My musical journey began at the age of nine, where I delved into piano and theory under the expert guidance of professionally trained teachers. Throughout my formative years, I underwent rigorous and detailed training, honing my skills and developing a deep understanding of the art of piano playing and music theory.
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).
Jenn 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.
