Music is part of our everyday lives wether we realize it or not. Music sways our mood during a sad scene in a film or makes our bodies move to upbeat music at a party. Music is fundamentally ingrained into our lives and thats why being able to produce and manipulate sound is so interesting to me. My lessons are student driven, meaning we work towards YOUR goals and ambitions. We begin with a short but essential warmup and then move onto repetoire which I believe is the best way to hone and improve one's skills. Students can choose the songs they wish to work on and we will work together to strengthen and develop the skills needed for that piece. For songwriting lessons, I teach through various exercises, workshops, case studies and lots of practice! Voice, guitar and songwriting lessons can be integrated into each other depending on the students interests and goals. My lessons are structured and fun. Students can expect a friendly face each week guiding them to reach their aspirations!

Age: 18

Gender: female

I am currently in progress of achieving a BFA in Professional Music at Toronto Metropolitan University. This course includes music production, theory, songwriting and business knowledge. I took private guitar lesson from a conservatory and then decided to teach myself after a few years so I could focus more on what I was interested in. I took private vocal lessons from Lesley Andrews, a classically trained vocal coach who has traveled the world singing opera and also teaching vocal lessons. I have been songwriting since the age of 12 and have released two Albums since then. I have also received multiple federal and provincial awards and grants as well as school scholarships as recognition of my musicianship and songwriting skills.

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

Meghnaa 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.
