As a piano tutor, my teaching philosophy centers around fostering a love of music and helping students develop the skills and confidence they need to express themselves through the piano. I believe that music is a universal language that has the power to connect people of all ages, backgrounds, and cultures. My goal as a teacher is to help students discover the joy and beauty of music and to guide them on their journey to becoming skilled and creative musicians. In order to achieve this goal, I prioritize individualized instruction and tailor my teaching approach to meet the unique needs and goals of each student. I recognize that every student learns differently and has different interests and strengths, and I strive to create a learning environment that is supportive, engaging, and inspiring.

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

Age: 30's

Gender: female

I began my musical journey at the Tehran University of art (Iran), where I earned my BA in music composition. Then I went on to gain my Master's in Music Education at the University of Western Ontario (Canada). Over the years, I have honed my skills as an educator, constantly seeking new ways to engage and motivate students while helping them to achieve their full musical potential. Throughout my career, I have been committed to creating inclusive and welcoming learning environments that enable students to explore and express themselves through music. I have worked with students of all ages and levels, from young children just starting out on their musical journeys to seasoned musicians looking to refine their skills.

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).
