Teaching Philosophy

I began Teaching in 2019 after taking the Mohawk music Prep program and am going into my 3rd year in the applied music program for Bass.
I love teaching as it lets me use my experience to inform others and help guide them on a logical and hopefully smooth musical journey. My time in the mohawk college music program has certainty informed my teaching ability. The Pedagogy course which discusses teaching theory as well as put's you into practical teaching situations via a co-op with local middle schools.
My time at college has opened up my musical vocabulary exponentially as well as my ability to preform on both bass and guitar. Music is a language and I believe I am fluent enough in the language enough to help people achieve there goals in understanding and developing there voice on the instrument of there choosing.

Musical Education

I am currently attending Mohawk College(3rd year) for applied music
throughout my college experience I have taken such courses as :
-Music Improvisation
-Music History
-Pedagogy (study of teaching)

all of these courses have informed my ability to understand music theory and performance as well as teaching music as a language itself

Special Skills and Training

The majority of my 15 years of my main instrument guitar has been playing with groups of people. In bands , other community music groups and assisting with recording music locally, lots is learned in the process of creativity. Learning how to work with different people/personality types and learning how to communicate with all of these people has been my biggest take away from these shared experiences. One the more important skills I have developed during this period in my is being able to communicate the same idea in different ways .


30 Minutes: $39.00
45 Minutes: $49.00

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).
