About Natalie


I believe that everyone can be a musician through determination and hard work, it is something everyone should be able to enjoy. I want to support anyone in their goals to pursue music, no matter their age and experience. To me, music brings joy and life and my mission is to spread that message through my teaching.

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

Age: 18

Gender: female

I am currently attending the University of British Columbia to pursue a degree in Cello Performance. I will be entering my second year in September 2024. I have completed the following RCM levels: -ARCT Performance on the cello, High Honors -Level 10 on the cello, Honors -ARCT Analysis -ARCT Harmony and Counterpoint. My teachers include Bo Peng and Eric Wilson. I have studied the cello for over 10 years and continue to perform in chamber music and orchestras. I have served as a teaching assistant at the Richmond Delta Youth Orchestra's Junior Strings Division for three years.

I have been studying music since I was a child, starting on the piano and later transitioning to the cello. I began my studies in group lessons, but later transitioning to private teachers. Music, especially cello performance, is such an important element in my life. I am so grateful to have these experiences that make me the musician I am, and I hope to spread my joy and passion to others.


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).
