I am a firm believer in the Suzuki Philosophy, guided by the principle of "Every Child Can!" - a powerful statement from Suzuki's literature that resonates deeply with me and, I believe, will resonate with your child as well. As a music teacher, I am dedicated to tailoring each student's musical journey to align with their personal life goals, particularly focusing on their aspirations in cello playing. Ultimately, we are all human beings driven by a shared desire for inspiration through music. Throughout my teaching experience, I have had the privilege of working with students ranging from the tender age of 4 to the seasoned age of 64, creating a comfortable and inclusive environment for learners of all ages. Witnessing my students flourish and grow, embracing their unique potential and transforming into the musicians they aspire to be, is a truly gratifying experience that brings me immense joy.

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

Age: 30's

Gender: female

I hold a Master's degree in cello performance from the esteemed Cleveland Institute of Music, an institution that provided me with comprehensive training in Suzuki Pedagogy. During my time there, I actively engaged with the Suzuki Association of the Americas (SAA), further deepening my understanding and commitment to this pedagogical approach.

When a student comes to me with their cello as the very first instrument in hand, I know they will need a lot more help than just cello to learn about music. Unlike piano, cello isn't the easiest instrument to introduce to beginners. Hence, I always prepare extra materials to supplement their musical knowledge. Sometimes I play notes for the intonation on the piano, and sometimes we learn from other books ( ABRSM/RCM). Overall, I like providing comprehensive trainings ( theory, music dictation) to my students from one point in their learning journey.

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).
