Teaching Philosophy

My main passion is music and my whole life revolves around it. I hope to deliver an experience through my teaching that can help others reach a similar passion in music while allowing them to progress towards the goals they would like to reach. I believe in hard work and focus, but also in enjoyment in learning and adding a little fun between focusing on exercises and technique. My lessons will also focus on the proper techniques of each instrument in order to avoid putting too much strain on the student or injury which is an essential part of staying happy and healthy with your instrument. I strive to take a song or style that interests the student and apply the techniques to aspects of each song so that the student can learn while they play what they enjoy.

Musical Education

I am currently attending Ambrose University in the Bachelor of Music Program. I have been trained on classical guitar for 12 years and on electric guitar and bass for the past 7. My classical guitar teacher has established himself in the Calgary music and teaching scene through the classical guitar society and the Mount Royal University Music Academy and pushes me to keep expanding my horizons and abilities through these institutions.

Awards and Distinctions

YYC Music Awards "Best Metal Recording" awarded to Red Cain.

Special Skills and Training

Through my teacher and school, I have been given the opportunity to perform in various events such as the Classical Guitar Society Preview Performance at Shelf Life Books, The Ambrose Spring Gala, and to tour England with my schools chamber choir. My experience with classical guitar and teaching has also allowed me to become a teachers assistant in the Mount Royal Music Academy which has helped further develop my skills in education and working with students of various ages.

Policies


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).
