Teaching Philosophy

Music has been at the center of my life since I picked up the guitar. In my case it was my first guitar teacher who showed me how thrilling it can be if you invest yourself in it. Music can brings growth in every aspects of someones life. This is why my teaching is centered towards each students finding their own personal voice and way of expression. I believe having strong knowledge of the basics of music (rythm, ear training, instrumental technique) is essential to reaching high levels of musical expression . A balance between self dicipline and letting go is a beautiful way to evolve in this practice. It needs to be taken seriously but without stress or anxiety.

Musical Education

I have BA degree in jazz performance from Mcgill University as well as a DEC also in jazz performance from Cegep St-Laurent.
Some of the teachers I have had the chance to learn from include Chris Mccann, John Holenbeck, Joe Sullivan, Jean Michel Pilc.

Awards and Distinctions

Guitar scholarship recipient from McGill jazz performance program 2016.

Special Skills and Training

Both in my studies at McGill and in life in general I have had the chance to encounter teachers and fellow musicians who have really made it clear to me that the way we are in life and the way we play music are inseparable. Working on one is working on the other and that in itself is its own reward.

45 Minutes: $49.00

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).
