“Without joy, there is no music, and without music, there is no joy.”
 - RAJ


"Music begins where the possibilities of language end" - Jean Sibelius. Music is a universal language, a gift of God that profoundly impacts human life from its very inception to its culmination. With the power to transform moods, alter atmospheres, and inspire new behaviors, music holds an incredible sway. Drawing from my specialization and extensive experience, I am dedicated to guiding and preparing students for examinations by prestigious boards such as RCM (Royal Conservatory of Music) and TCL (Trinity College London). Whether it's Music Theory or mastering instruments like Piano, Guitar, Violin, and Electronic Keyboard across various levels, starting from the fundamental basics, I am here to foster growth. I firmly believe that joy and play are integral to effective learning, regardless of age. My approach ensures that students embark on their musical journey without unnecessary stress or anxiety. For adult learners, rest assured that the same level of support and respect is provided as to our youngest musicians. After all, without joy, music loses its essence, and without music, joy finds itself incomplete.

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).
