Teaching Philosophy

I believe it is very important that you enjoy the music you are playing, or want to learn how to play. I encourage students to listen to music and pursue the styles that most interest them.
I believe that it is important to learn theory as well as practicing regularly.
Learning to play music should be a very enjoyable and rewarding experience for all ages.

Musical Education

I have a BA in jazz performance from Laurentian University, and have come to Montreal to continue my studies in music.

Awards and Distinctions

2017 Upcoming Artist Award (Jazz Sudbury)

Special Skills and Training

I have alot of experience performing, which I believe to be important for Jazz music. I've played for the Sudbury jazz festival on numerous occasions, as well as venues in Rouyn, Val D'or, New Liskeard, Ottawa and Montreal. I have some experience with other genres of music, playing with different bands from my hometown. To a certain degree I will be able to teach other styles, such as Rock, Country or Blues. I also have two years of experience teaching for the Northern Conservatory Of Music.

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).
