BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH NOAH NOW
I have an undying passion for music, and love sharing it with others. I am interested in fostering an educational environment that is engaging, creative, and intuitive. I consider music to be a system of expression and thought, and there are many ways to acquire and experience this system. One of the most important pedagogical principles I hold is being able to address the differences in learning styles among children and adults. Every student learns music differently, and being able to approach such difference is equally important, so that every student has a welcoming opportunity to acquire the wonders of music. I hope to accommodate this diversity in learning through the employment of conveying music through different mediums as well, such as visual, kinesthetic, and allegorical. Although my background is especially built on the traditions and practices of classical music, I enjoy many other types of music as well.
Name: Noah (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I have a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance from the University of Ottawa, where I had classes in performance, ensemble, theory, and history. I studied piano privately from the age of five until twenty. The private teacher I had for many years was exceptionally detail-oriented and is classically trained, having an Associate Diploma (ARCT) in performance from the RCM. At uOttawa, I studied under two piano professors for 2 years each.
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).
