Teaching Philosophy

Music has always been a passion of mine, and for me to be able to share my passion with others is a blessing! For me, I find teaching to be a rewarding experience as it allows me to guide students and demonstrate how music can bring so much joy. When it comes to teaching my students, I believe that communication and patience are of the utmost importance. Patience is important because it promotes a less stressful environment with the teacher which then leads to better communication and more questions to be asked. When these two tools are utilized, it allows for clearer and more concise lessons.

Musical Education

I am a student studying Jazz Guitar at Marianopolis College and would like to be able to share my passions in
music, audio, and teaching with students. I have given guitar lessons to my friends and family and would like to
gain more experience with others. I am a creative and dynamic person that enjoys challenges and would like to
expand on my knowledge of teaching. I have had the privilege of playing multiple shows of different styles from
jazz to metal with three years of experience.

Special Skills and Training

I have a Music & Recording Degree from Recording Arts Canada. I also DJ!

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).
