“Discovering a voice, you never knew you had.”
 - Mollin


Learning and unlearning. For me, learning how to play the flute is like learning a new language or discovering a voice you never knew you had. I teach fundamentals focused heavily on mind, body and instrument connection. To help bring awareness to positive habits that will help my students achieve their goals. I strive to set an environment where the learning experience is enjoyable, and moments of tension and negativity cannot foster. My past teachers created a fun, caring and safe environment which helped me be the Musician and Teacher I am today, and I strive to continue this tradition. I recognize that every student is different, be it particular interests and passions, learning styles, or commitment levels. My goal is to make the lessons fun, provide a safe and inspiring environment, and celebrate music.

My family and I moved to Canada when he was 11, from the Philippines. I started playing the flute when I was in the 7th grade, in my middle school band program. After playing for a couple of months, my band teacher suggested that I would audition for the provincial honour band, and I got in. This experience made me want to continue, and improve on my instrument. I have performed with many ensembles, such as the Manitoba Honour Bands, Winnipeg Youth Orchestras, Winnipeg Wind Endsemble, University of Manitoba Wind ensemble, University of Manitoba Symphony Orchestra and University of Toronto Wind Ensemble/Orchestra. I also participated in various competitions such as the Winnipeg Music Festival, the Syrinx flute festival where I won awards and scholarships, and the University of Manitoba Concerto competition where I performed as a soloist with the University Symphony orchestra.


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).
