“Music is therapy, music is joy, music is life!”
BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH LISA NOW
I believe in approaching everything in life with positivity and passion. I have been lucky enough to study under some of the greats out there and have learned how to best approach each student. I believe everyone learns differently and I will adapt my style to suit the students best. My goal is to teach the trumpet but to also share my passion and knowledge about the instrument. Music is therapy, music is joy, music is life!
Name: Lisa (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I attended Humber Music Jazz Program and completed 3 plus years. I also have an Honours Diploma in Music Business from Harris Institute for the Arts
Honours Degree, Music Business. Harris Institute for the Arts
I have been playing trumpet since grade 6! The second I put a trumpet to my face I knew I had found my passion. I played trumpet in school, and in all of the Halton School groups, like Halton Senior Jazz band. I am also a proud alumni of the Burlington Teen Tour Band and experienced touring to Japan and Hawaii. I attended the top music program at the time, Humber music. I also attended Harris Institute for the Arts and graduated top of my class with a degree in Music Management. I am currently a touring musican and can help and advise students on how to pursue a career in music as well as perform in front if thousands of people My band My Son the Hurricane has had the pleasure of opening for the Foo Fighters, the Wailers and we have toured Canada and the USA to 100's of sold out shows. My favourite part of tour is meeting and inspiring children to pick up a brass instrument and have a blast doing it! Music should be and is fun if we approach it with the right attitude! I have experience playing and performing in classical settings, jazz, classical, funk, blues, hip hop and many more.
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).
