BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH LINH NOW
Music is something that accompanies all of us throughout our lives, and teaching music is like a bridge that leads people to a joyful life. As a pianist, playing piano requires my hand-eye coordination. It also increases fingers' speed and strengthens hand muscles. The more you practice, the more it will become second nature, and you can apply it to life situations. I was a student myself, I understand that keeping yourself calm when playing the piano or any instrument is essential. I always want to give my students the best enjoyable environment to develop their skills and have fun. Everyone is welcome and will have the same support and respect. Music holds the power to bring people together in different ways. Music can make us expressive and help us in understanding our feelings and emotions in a better manner. It's never too late to learn music.
Name: Linh (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I passed the Classical Piano course when I was six years old at the Ho Chi Minh City Conservatory of Music in Vietnam after being trained for 12 years. After that, I started teaching in my hometown and got many students of various ages. Since I came to Canada in 2018, I have continued teaching until now.
My father is a music teacher, he’s been teaching guitar and piano for over 50 years. As a child, I always spent most of my time watching him teaching. From then on, my passion grew stronger and motivated me to learn piano and to become a great teacher like my father. I was professionally trained at the only Conservatory of Music in my city back in Vietnam and have learned many different skills and techniques from my teacher. These experiences have helped me earn many opportunities and good memories.
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).
