I believe in providing quality piano lessons that are relevant, fun, motivating and fresh. I believe in piano lessons that focus not only on acquisition of skills but the enjoyment of learning and the celebration of the ''aha'' moment. I value home practicing because is fun (not because you have to). The right to make mistakes,playing from the heart and work hard to achieve our goals. I do a lot of research to ensure that what I teach is unique, innovative and edgy and make it a priority to recognize student achievements in ways that are meaningful and fun. I believe in modeling how music can do good in our community and busting self-esteem. I believe my program is one of a kind and that I will continue to evolve. My students will always be my inspiration to do more.

Name: Naomi (Full name will be provided upon registration)

Age: 22

Gender: female

I am currently finishing my 3rd year of BA in music from Trinity Western University which includes performance classes in piano and mostly classical music. I studied both piano and voice privately from the age of 12 until the age of eighteen. My teachers were classically trained and the training I underwent was rigorous and detailed. My piano teacher was trained in Vienna and was detail oriented with exceptionally high standards. Studying music at university has also given me the opportunity to be part of different ensembles, both as a pianist and a singer.

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).
