Through my own personal experience as a musician and a teacher, I have found music has two characteristics that make it such a distinctly beautiful art to teach and learn. Music has both universality and individuality. The universality of music means that music is for everyone. Whether by listening to music, playing an instrument, or making music via technology, music has a place in everyone’s life, and everyone participates in music on some level. The individuality of music refers to the specific way each individual interacts with music, and the role it plays in their life. This is where musical preference, specific learning abilities, talent and individual style come in. Helping students identify their own individuality, and their place within the world of music is the best way to help them grow as a musician, and allow music to take its place in adding a deeply valuable skillset to their lives.

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

Age: 21

Gender: female

I have studied piano for 14 years with a private teacher. In this time I completed several RCM practical examinations up to Level 10, as well as the corequisite music theory, history, harmony and counterpoint examinations. I am currently in the process of completing my ARCT Diploma. I've also studied cello for the past 7 years. 2 years of my cello education was under the highly accomplished cellist, Ian Hampton.

In addition to my music studies and education (listed below), I have also been quite active musically in my community. I have played both piano and cello for weddings and funerals. I served as an accompanist in my church as well as other churches for over 6 years. I’ve also been an accompanist working with choirs, organ and various small instrumental ensembles for different types of events (fundraisers, concerts, recitals). In addition to accompaniment, I also have 13 years of experience in piano performance, both solo and duetting :). I have been teaching piano for 6 years, from beginner level up to RCM 8, to students of all ages. I worked alongside an experienced teacher for 6 months near the beginning of my teaching career to set myself on track and learn the basics of music education from the teacher’s side of things. Since then, I have developed my own teaching methods and philosophy through having taught over 40 different students. RCM Certifications: Practical Piano Levels 1-10 (Examinations for levels 6,8,9,10) Theory: Intermediate (Level 7), Advanced (Level 8) Harmony: Levels 9, 10, ARCT History: Levels 9, 10

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

Katrina 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.
