Tung - BAH Teacher #2451

“ I continue to demonstrate the ability to relate, communicate and encourage in a pedagogical environment. ”
 - Tung


As my resume indicates, I have thirty one years of professional experience in music field practices. I believe that my extensive experience working as a musician: leader, sideman, teacher and producer, has taught me how to motivate and inspire students to achieve high standards in learning. In my role as a teacher, from public and private schools to Conservatory and studio lessons, I continue to demonstrate the ability to relate, communicate and encourage in a pedagogical environment. My comprehensive musical training includes degrees from McMaster and Brock Universities, and course work at Mohawk College. At McMaster, I majored in music education, where I gained knowledge of a wide range of pedagogical techniques, including Kodaly and Orf, choral, strings, brass, etc.

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).

Online lessons

Tung can provide online instruction. While other platforms are possible BAH strongly recommends the use of the Zoom video conferencing platform as it is optimized for music lessons and audio quality.

Tung's Studio Location

Tung offers lessons from his studio. Please note that map locations are based on the postal code of the teachers studio. After booking an interview the full address will be released to you if needed.
