Teaching Philosophy

At the core of my teaching philosophy lies a profound passion for music that I aim to share with all of my students. Having dedicated over a decade to studying and embracing music as both an art and a science, I have come to realize its transformative power. Music awakens our entire brain, stimulating cognitive function and cultivating invaluable habits and patterns that can benefit us in any endeavor we choose to pursue. It enhances our mental agility and processing speed. With this understanding, I strive to engage students of all ages, whether children or adults, in music activities that foster creativity, discipline, adaptability, and collaborative teamwork. Through the medium of music, I aspire to unlock their potential and provide a joyful and enriching learning experience.

Musical Education

I started playing guitar when I was 12 years old and formed my first band at 14. I pursued my university education and earned the following degrees:

Universidad de las Americas - Bachelor's Degree in Music with a focus on musical production (I studied music and electric guitar under the Berklee Contemporary Music program). My guitar teacher was one of the greatest jazz players in Ecuador, so he had a keen eye for detail and high standards.

Additionally, I have basic knowledge of drums, bass, and everything related to live events.

Since then, I have been deeply involved in the world of music, exploring different facets and honing my skills on various instruments. My academic background and experience working with accomplished professionals have provided me with a strong foundation to offer quality instruction and meticulous attention to every musical aspect. I am excited to share my knowledge and passion for music with others and hope to be a positive influence on their own musical journeys.

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).
