Teaching Philosophy


I am a son of a teacher. My mom worked her whole life as a school teacher and my father was a musician so, I combined both careers and became a bit like “Malcolm in the middle”, also cause I am the second of three siblings.
Teaching is always a humbling experience as we all learn from our students in every session. In my regard, the most important reward for a music teacher is seeing his pupils succeed becoming great professional musicians and, that is always my aim when I teach.
It is always my dream to see a musician playing on a major stage and be able to proudly say that I was them teacher at some point.I admire talent, promote improvisation and creativity , but I also believe in the power of consistency developing skills.
Whether we are conscious of it or not, we are all living through a very important moment in the history of humanity. Through music , teachers and students all together contribute to create a much more sensitive , creative and emotionally intelligent humanity. That is precisely my mission as a music educator ; influencing people to be creative and better humans, that is why I teach.

Musical Education

I attended Pedagogical University Enrique José Varona in Havana Cuba where I completed a five year program in Musical Education

Special Skills and Training

I enjoy writing customized short etudes and exercises in order to develop an specific technical skill in a student. Such approach adds value to my teaching as I pay detailed attention to each student technical requirements individually . During my days as a teacher at The Ontario Conservatory of Music I also took a lot of pleasure in writing guitar Duets and Trios that, aside from being fun to the students , also prepared them for the ensembles class which I was also directing .

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).
