I believe that the best way to enrich ones life is through music. I am very fortunate that I grew up with music surrounding me, and one of my main goals within my career is to introduce the magic of music to others. No matter your age, music will be able to teach something about yourself that you never new, and I love being apart of the process! I am very excited about teaching multiple genres of music with the violin, in hopes to educate the masses regarding the importance of music in ones life.

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

Age: 23

Gender: female

I have an honours BA in music performance from Sir Wilfred Laurier University, which included performance classes in violin, and a minor in history. I studied both piano and violin privately from the age of four until the age of eighteen. My teachers were classically trained, and the training I underwent was rigorous and detailed. I have over ten years of orchestral experience, joining my first youth orchestra at the age of 9. In addition to this, I was fortunate to audition and be accepted into the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra, where I toured and performed with for four years.

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).
