Teaching Philosophy

After 20 years of playing and performing on stage, I realize that playing guitar is about all the little things. As long as you figure out those little things, learning and playing will become much easier and more enjoyable. Those little things could be theory and/or tricks. However, figuring out those little things could take a lot of time, and often leave you stuck in your learning progress as you don’t know what they are and where to look for them. I can help you overcome those little things, so you don’t waste your time and enjoy learning and playing.

Musical Education

I hold a Diploma of Music Performance awarded by Victoria Conservatory of Music.

The faculty at the Conservatory was all graduates of famous music institutions like Berkley, McGill University and later became professional performers and well-known musicians in Canada. They helped me to perfect my musical playing as well as master the music theory.

Special Skills and Training

I started learning the guitar when I was 15. I took private lessons, learned from friends and other working musicians. The training I underwent was practical and highly applicable on stage. Ten years later, I was ready to take musical education to the next level - that's when I attended Victoria Conservatory of Music to study music formally.

There is a one-time registration fee of 25 $ charged with the first lessons. All Taxes are included in prices, if applicable

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).
