“Music's capacity for creativity and self-expression serves as a platform for students to explore their own musical ideas and think outside the box. ”
Currently Not Available for Registration
I am deeply passionate about music and eager to share its emotional power, inspiration, and ability to bring people together. My goal as a music teacher is to ignite students' love for music, guiding them to discover its joy and beauty. I believe that teaching music can have a positive impact on students by nurturing their musical skills, fostering personal growth, and promoting self-expression. Furthermore, music's capacity for creativity and self-expression serves as a platform for students to explore their own musical ideas and think outside the box. Teaching music allows me to create an environment where students can embrace their creativity and experience the transformative nature of music, ultimately leaving a lasting impact on their lives.
Name: Yoyo (Full name will be provided upon registration)
Started my piano journey at the age of five. I accomplished the ABRSM Grade 8 Piano qualification at the age of 12.
Having a background in early-childhood education, I understand that teaching piano to four-year-olds requires fundamental qualities such as patience, creativity, and effective communication skills to engage and inspire young learners. With a rich teaching experience spanning eight years, I have had the privilege of working with diverse students, spanning from young children to adults.
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).
