Music is all around us, and we all have our own innate ability to feel, express and channel this energy through our instruments to create magic! Studying music harnesses skills in numerous different avenues such as creativity, multitasking, self expression, confidence, time management, discipline, team work, all of which can be used in your day to day, and other facets of life/career. Music is something I am extremely pationate about and would love to share that with others! My goal as a teacher is to best help and support my student learn and grow, but most importantly, enjoy that journey! This entails a thorough and effective teaching method that gives the student the tools to continue practicing at home as well as in my studio. Scales, warmups and technique always have to balance out learning new repertoire and are essential in setting down a good foundation to flourish !

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

Age: 25

Gender: female

I have an honours with distinction BA in Fine Arts from Concordia University where music was a key focus in my artistic practice and studies. I studied both piano and cello from the age of 5 until the age of 17. Both of my professors were classically trained professional musicians, who were both educators at post secondary institutions. I was studying in their studios and playing with other University level musicians in orchestras and chamber ensembles from the age of 13. During the summers I would audition and take part in International music institutions such as Domaine Forget in Quebec where I studied with world class musicians privately and also played in quartets and orchestras. Along side the performance studies I studied music theory, history and harmony.

I spent my early childhood learning Suzuki methods and later transitioned into RCM were I obtained my Grade 10 cello, Grade 8 piano and intermediate Harmony certificates. Having learned through both of these schools of teaching I believe I have a very well rounded approach. I have also actively participated and received numerous trophies, scholarships and awards from the Kiwanis Music Festival, Woodstock Rotary Festival and the Ontario Music Festivals Association. Through my experiences in competitions across Canada, I have had the privilege of receiving feedback and participating in masterclasses with world renowned musicians, giving me knowledge in multiple ways to approach teaching and coaching.

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).
