Teaching Philosophy

Music has been a great passion of mine my entire life. I was fortunate to begin studying at a young age. I believe musicianship helps train and evoke many things from discipline, skill, mindfulness and emotion.

Musical Education

Canadian Conservatory of Music - Halifax Regional Municipality

Bass Guitar, Drum and Guitar lessons for 7 years - passed Delta bass guitar exam 98% participated in local rock camp, seminars and clinics

Learned many aspects of the fore mentioned instruments; sight reading, tablature, music theory, proper techniques, practical practice applications, riffs, jingles, chord progressions, music genre traits and commonalities, improvisation, scales, modes, keys, chords, music appreciation, music history.

I wish to pass on my knowledge and enthusiasm for music. I believe those who decide to persue the path of a musician, whether just for fun or with greater aspirations, will find both great challenges and great joys .

I have no doubt the journey of learning to play and understand a musical instrument has been pivotal in my growth and enjoyment of life. I hope to help others enjoy the time spent studying and playing music and musical instruments.

Thank you


Special Skills and Training

Leadership, teaching and mentoring has been commonplace throughout my music career and trades career. Played in a band for years, live performance experience, Studio experience, songwriting experience. Began lessons at 12 years old, I believe having started young may help me to work great with young musicians as I was once one myself

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).
