As a teacher, I find immense joy in witnessing the progress of my students working together tirelessly towards their goals. Each step of the way, I am deeply committed to being patient and wholeheartedly involved in the student's growth and development. Seeing my students flourish and reach new heights fills me with excitement and pride. As we learn together, I am genuinely invested in their musical progression, celebrating their accomplishments and helping them overcome any challenges they may face.

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

Age: 40's

Gender: female

I have music degrees from the University of British Columbia, The Juilliard School, and the University of Southern California in Los Angeles where I studied with Nico Abondolo. I have also been a participant in Gary Karr’s ” Karr Kamp” for double bassists in Victoria, BC, Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, The New York String Seminar under Jaime Laredo, The Tanglewood Music Center and the Pierre Monteux Music Festival.

As a busy and versatile freelance musician, I have had the honor of performing with esteemed orchestras such as the Vancouver Metropolitan Orchestra, the Vancouver Symphony, and the Whatcom Symphony in Washington State. Additionally, I have shared the stage with acts like Cirque Musica and the Alumni project, a group of talented singers showcasing a delightful mix of choral, pop, gospel, and jazz 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

Leanna 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.
