Harris Institute of Arts (Toronto, Canada): I pursued a Music Business Professional program, gaining valuable insights into the industry and developing a solid foundation in managing and promoting music.
Escuela Moderna de Música y Danza (Santiago de Chile): I honed my skills in Music Composition and Arrangements, immersing myself in the creative process and exploring various techniques to bring musical ideas to life.
101 Training Center (Santiago de Chile): I further expanded my expertise by delving into Music Production techniques using Ableton Live, and mastering Studio recording techniques utilizing Pro Tools.
Private Lessons:
In addition to my formal education, I have also received private instruction in the following areas:

Singing: I have cultivated my vocal abilities through personalized guidance, enabling me to express emotions and deliver captivating performances.
Electric Guitar: With private guitar lessons, I have honed my skills on this versatile instrument, exploring different styles and techniques to create expressive melodies.
Piano: Through dedicated piano instruction, I have developed a deep understanding of harmony, melody, and composition, allowing me to create rich musical arrangements.
Drums: Private drum lessons have provided me with rhythmic dexterity and precision, enhancing my ability to drive the beat and contribute to the overall musical groove.

My extensive training and diverse experiences have shaped me into a well-rounded musician, equipped with a comprehensive understanding of various aspects of music. I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and skills to contribute meaningfully to the world of music.

30 Minutes: $39.00
45 Minutes: $49.00
60 Minutes: $59.00

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).
