Teaching Philosophy

I believe learning music should be relaxed, flexible, fun, and focused. Learning songs I think is a great way to stay motivated, and consistently have a clear goal to work towards. Exercises I find work best when designed specifically to build the skill and experience that’s necessary to overcome a challenge in a particular song. I encourage students to focus on listening skills, broaden their theoretical knowledge, cultivate an organic approach to the instrument, and gradually aim to bridge the gap between musical ear and musical performance. Music is in my opinion a great way to exercise both creativity and logical detail oriented thinking in a fun, accessible environment.

Musical Education

My formal training was at Humber College in Toronto, where I completed a Bachelor of Music Degree with honours. Prior to that I'd studied guitar and piano privately for many years, as well as a summer program at Berklee College of Music on scholarship. I'm an active member of Nashville Songwriters Association, and a student of music production, mixing, and mastering.

Awards and Distinctions

Humber College - Greg Wells Music Scholarship for music production, Yamaha Music Scholarship for musicianship, Peter Harris Memorial Award for guitar.

Special Skills and Training

Having had the opportunity to work with students and teachers from all ages and levels of experience, I’ve been fortunate to learn to constantly adapt my approach, stay inspired, and continue to be a student myself.

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).
