BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH PEI-XUAN NOW
I believe it is integral to the education of any person. We all have rhythm and sound from the heartbeat to the sound of breath, and formal training in music is only a way to deeply get to know what already exists in every person. The body of a musician requires much detailed physical focus on movement; all of my lessons begin with physical warm-ups to support finding specific feelings required in the development for piano, violin and vocal. Joy and play are essential elements of successful learning at any age, and I make certain that students learn without a lot of undue stress to help them feeling safe and develop confidence. Adult students can expect the same support as the youngest child. Without joy, life without music, there is nothing.
Name: PEI-XUAN (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I have an honours BA in music from Taipei Capital Education University, which included performance classes in voice, piano and violin. I studied both piano and violin in professional class from elementary school until university. During studied being a expert of music, the training I underwent was rigorous and detailed also oriented with exceptionally high standards. I trained vocally with a classical Argentinian teacher for several years, in addition to my experience in the Taiwan National Chorus. This choir entailed professional performances, including singing with the Opera Company, National Ochestra of Taiwan and recording for National music album.

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).
