Music is a gift for all! It should welcome anyone who wishes to participate, regardless of their level of skill. Music gracefully weaves into our daily existence, whether we are aware of it or not. Embracing a positive mindset and a curiosity for learning are key ingredients to creating extraordinary music experiences. Let's celebrate the magic of music and cherish its ability to enrich our lives in beautiful ways!
Name: Jordan (Full name will be provided upon registration)
From 2014 to 2019, I pursued my passion for music at the University of Victoria, where I earned my Bachelor of Music with a focus on Secondary Music Education. After completing my studies there, I continued my musical journey by pursuing a Master's in Music Performance at the University of Alberta in 2019. I am thrilled to share that I have recently completed this program! Throughout my educational journey, I have had the privilege of learning from esteemed trumpet instructors, many of whom attended the renowned Northwestern University for their music degrees. Notably, one of my teachers even had the incredible experience of studying at Juilliard! As a well-rounded musician, I also dedicated time to piano lessons at the Brentwood School of Music in Victoria from 2012 to 2016, achieving my Grade 8 RCM Piano qualification. My musical pursuits have been both enriching and fulfilling, and I am excited to bring my knowledge and passion to my students.

My music education training stems from my undergraduate degree, which included four years of focused instruction on teaching music. Throughout my journey, I have accumulated valuable experience teaching children of all ages in various settings, be it groups or private lessons. Additionally, I have had the opportunity to conduct numerous trumpet and brass clinics for beginner students in both Victoria and Edmonton. These experiences have enriched my teaching skills and strengthened my dedication to nurturing young musicians on their musical path.
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).
Lessons in your home
