Music goes beyond the enjoyment of pure listening. Not only can it reflect our moods and emotions, but it can be a lifeline for pulling us out of the pits of anxiety and stress that we often find ourselves in. It can give us a reason to find joy behind the simplistic things life offers us. Music is also a great escape for many of us. The feeling of taking a piece of music, and transforming it into anything we want it to be is a feeling like no other, and the sensation we get when we allow ourselves to truly feel a piece of music and be absorbed by it completely is one that is indescribable. It is more than playing notes on a piece of paper, or listening to a melody that catches our attention. It is wanting to create something of our own, something that others cannot replicate. It is having the fundamental skills to understand why we play music, and why it brings us the joy that it does. It is a form of therapy that no matter what age, can light a fire inside of us if we allow it to.

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

Age: 23

Gender: female

I am in the progress of obtaining a BA in music from MacEwan University, specializing in music education. My specialties including theory and ear training, beginner compositions, and accompaniment playing. I have been playing the piano for 12 years. I started off taking lessons leisurely, playing mostly popular music, and as my love for my craft developed I pursued higher levels of education. My private piano teacher was trained in classical music and piano pedagogy. She is where I began to learn more about piano techniques and how to practice longevity as a pianist. It was not until I got to university where I started, and continue to, develop my skills in what it means to be a trained musician and understand the theory behind what we are playing, while also learning to perform in various different styles, including jazz, folk music, R&B and other types of popular music.

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).

Online lessons

Katelyn 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.
