KATE - BAH Teacher #2012

“Practicing an musical instrument is a journey of curiosity, excitement and joy.”


Learning piano is a wonderful way to fulfill a kid's personality. Practicing an musical instrument is a journey of curiosity, excitement and joy. Its undeniable that kids also have to learn to deal with frustration, impatience and even anger. After all, playing a piece of music is always rewarding. Moreover, that journey itself helps kids to shape their personality in a better way. Kids learn that they have to invest time and energy to get any good result. And that is my teaching philosophy: - Make an enjoyable environment of learning - Listen and talk to them for better understanding - Encourage them as much as possible. - Push them forward, beyond their limit. Eventually, they can have precious lessons not only about piano learning but also about life.

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

Age: 30's

Gender: female

I have pursued my piano studying academically since I was 8 years old at The Conservatory of Music of Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam. After 15 years of studying, I have got my Bachelor of Piano Performance. I have been working as a piano teacher for 13 years. Im specializing in working with kids at very young age 4 - 6 years old for individual classes. My major was classical piano. Im now using Piano Adventure which perfectly fit for kids of early age. Kids just need to know number 1- 5 and alphabet A - G to start learning piano. Im just giving individual courses which help me to understand and follow better every single kid. Im also able to teach Theory and Practical (Aural, Scales, Sight-reading) for ABRSM exam.



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).
