Teaching Philosophy

I believe that you can never stop learning, and that the only limitations that you have on your skill and knowledge of your craft are the ones you place on yourself. If you have a goal you can achieve it as long as you put in the effort, you get out of it what you put in to it. With my lessons, I make sure every student understands what they are being taught. Since I have been teaching I've realized that my students push me to become a better musician as just as much as I push them to become a better musician.

Musical Education

I took guitar lessons for around 4 years collectively from various teachers of different styles. My first teacher was my Dad, who used to be a guitar instructor in his younger days, he taught me the basics to guitar playing. My next teacher was an amazing Chicago Blues style player that helped my get better at my strumming, rhythm, and playing blues. My third teacher was a very versatile player that helped me get rid of any bad habits I developed with my playing, and taught me music theory that was very unknown to me at the time, how to be able to play any style of music, and more advanced techniques with my guitar playing that helped me become a more well rounded player.

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).
