I have been teaching students for over 10 years. Throughout my teaching career, I realized that the essential elements of successful learning are joy & interest in music. Students will have difficulty learning if they are not interested in music, and it will make it impossible to see further development of music. That is why teachers exist. In other words, The teacher's duty is to deeply communicate with the student mentally and emotionally for creating interest & joy in music. To do so, I combine lessons with play education. It not only makes it more effective for children to understand, but it can also create joy and interest.(including for adults) Classes based on interest and interest become a good foundation for students' academic achievement, and consequently increase their self-efficacy. In addition, a student who experiences a sense of self-efficacy due to a sense of accomplishment will live in the world with an open mind and ears (even if you or your child never play the note again after class). You will do anything in the world with confidence. In the end, it has the effect of creating a good attitude toward learning.

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

Age: 30's

Gender: female

I have a bachelor's degree in classical piano in South Korea. I have completed all courses as a scholarship student. In addition, I have teacher's certificate.(Ministry of Education Republic of Korea) Getting a teacher's certificate became the foundation for me to become a good teacher. It covers all subjects including pedagogy, music teaching, educational psychology, educational philosophy, Western music history, instrumentalism, harmony, accompaniment, and poetry listening and so on. I also have the experience of being the exclusive accompanist of a music group with Korean composition professors. I started playing the piano at the age of 7, and my teacher was trained in France. These experiences contribute to my wide range and high level of musicality.

I was a scholarship student during my bachelor's degree. Also, I have experience to learn by a professor at the National University of Music in Germany. I won many Korean competitions. I also played an exclusive accompaniment in the music group of the Professors' Association of University.

Not only music, but I also have a Weight & Pilates certificate. So, I can teach not only students' music, but also how to use their body beautifully and flexibly and correctly. Incorrect posture or musical breathing can be corrected correctly by incorporating physical teaching. As a result, it makes student enjoy music in a healthier way.



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).
