“I aim to make every lesson educational, productive, and fun.”
BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH LAUREN NOW
I aim to make every lesson educational, productive, and fun. Each student progresses and learns differently, and I tailor lessons to your needs to help reach the goals you set. I will meet you where you are at musically, and help you grow in the areas you seek improvement in. I offer lessons in person and online. I believe in an environment where students are respected, their love for music is nurtured, and they feel safe and comfortable. Though tone, technique, and musicality are key elements of lessons, I also help guide my students practice methods and personal relationship with music.
Name: Lauren (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I currently study flute at the University of Victoria. Previous to beginning at the University of Victoria, I also studied at the Mount Royal Conservatory. My education in other areas of music including singing, piano, and music theory, have helped me grow both personally and musically.
I have worked through the RCM program and obtained my Gr. IX RCM flute certificate, and Gr. VIII theory. I began playing the flute around the time I was ten and am grateful for how it benefited my childhood and shaped my future.
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).
