I believe that music learning is accessible to individuals of all ages, ethnicities, and abilities. Students thrive in positive and engaging classrooms, where the content is tailored to their needs. I reject the notion of a one-size-fits-all approach, preferring to customize class content for both one-on-one sessions and group settings.

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

Age: 30's

Gender: female

I hold a BA in Music Education with a major in piano and a minor in voice from China's prestigious Xinghai Conservatory of Music. Additionally, I have received training in Early Childhood Education and General Business in Canada. My musical journey began at the age of 5, and since then, I have garnered numerous awards and opportunities to perform piano solos, as well as in various ensembles such as 4-hand, two pianos, chamber music, choirs, and orchestras. I have been immersed in a diverse musical environment, participating in activities such as dance, chorus, Chinese big drums, French horn, accordion, Gu Zheng, harmonica, and ukulele. Beyond learning these skills, I have gained performance experience in each. My vocal training started at a young age when I joined my elementary school choir. Throughout my schooling, I consistently participated in choir competitions and performances, exploring various vocal ranges from soprano to mezzo-soprano, and even experimenting with alto and tenor due to my wide vocal range. During my teenage years through university, I received professional one-on-one vocal training, further honing my skills.

I have exceptional ear-training and sight-reading skills. I tested 100% for ear-training when I had my uni entry exam and had been tested high scores on ear-training as well as sight-reading. Therefore, I was able to be accompanist for many choirs and orchestras. I also have fundamental knowledge of Orff and Solfege. I am good at exam taking hence I can definitely help my students score their music exams successfully. In addition, my previous training of Early Childhood Education, business and leadership, complementing my role as a music teacher , can surely lead students of any age , as individual or groups, to their desirable futures.

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).
