Rolland - BAH Teacher #3670

About Rolland
I believe that music connects people and also has the ability to bring much joy and happiness to any person.


I believe that music connects people and also has the ability to bring much joy and happiness to any person. Learning an instrument may seem difficult at the beginning, but perseverance will yield the wonderful fruit of satisfaction when a musician begins to feel comfortable with the instrument of their choice.

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

Age: 30's

Gender: male

I studied classical piano from the age of five and also attended the Young Artists Performance Academy (YAPA) at the Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM) in my early teenage years. I completed my Associate Diploma (ARCT) awarded by the RCM Certificate Program.

Numerous local piano competition placement awards

Much of my childhood was spent learning from professional piano teachers, spending hours in private practice, and participating in numerous piano competitions and performances. My experience with in-home lessons and live in-person competitions has impacted me in how I approach teaching. Learning piano is not just about technique, but also involves the emotions and the imagination, and diving into the world of the composer.


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).
