Teaching Philosophy

For me, the most important thing is that students, whether they are children or adults, have fun playing music. I teach what students want to learn.

Pour moi, la chose la plus importante est que mes élèves, qu'ils soient enfants ou adultes, aient du plaisir à jouer de la musique. J'enseigne aux élèves ce qu'ils désirent apprendre.

Musical Education

I have a Bachelor's degree in classical guitar performance from Montreal University. I also studied with the great soloist Alvaro Pierri at Laval University.

J'ai un baccalauréat en interprétation de la guitare classique de l'Université de Montréal. J'ai aussi étudié avec le soliste de réputation internationale Alvaro Pierri à l'Université Laval.

Special Skills and Training

I have 10 years of experience in music/guitar teaching. Also, I have been performing as a professional guitarist for 12 years. J'ai 10 ans d'expérience dans l'enseignement de la guitare et de la musique. Aussi, cela fait 12 ans que je performe en tant que guitariste professionnel.

There is a one-time registration fee of 25 $ charged with the first lessons. All Taxes are included in prices, if applicable

NOTE: Your Credit card will be charged ONLY when the first lesson is set up and confirmed with the teacher


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).
