I am a positive and energetic teacher! With my dance background, I incorporate the whole body into singing and text expression. While giving helpful feedback and critique, I love to cheer my students on and bring joy to our lessons. My teacher once told me, "A sad bird doesn't sing." I've kept that quote close to my heart and make sure to keep a positive learning environment.

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

Age: 26

Gender: female

I have a Bachelor of Music in Voice and Opera Performance and Bachelor of Arts in Dance from Northwestern University. During my time at Northwestern, I was a part of Renaissance Singers, contemporary choirs, and operas. I am currently pursuing my Masters of Music in Voice and Opera Performance from McGill University. This past semester, I took Advanced Vocal Pedagogy and was able to do a teaching practicum to get feedback on my own teaching. I have performed in 6 operas, 10 musicals, and over a dozen dance productions! I have also instructed students in Western classical, musical theater, jazz, and pop singing. I also played concert and marching percussion throughout high school and my undergraduate degree.

I have studied dance for my undergraduate degree, delving into ballet, modern, jazz, musical theater, and improvisation. These various genres of dance have allowed me to experience various genres of music and listen to music in a different way. I also have a strong feeling for rhythm and pulse with my extensive percussion background. These aspects of my life have shaped how I perform, practice, teach, and enjoy 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).
