Teaching Philosophy

In all my years as marching band director, I have learned that every instrument has its own discipline, and they play a very unique role in the marching band or Orquestra. Each instrument has its importance and difficulty and for that reason, you have to dedicate special time to each one of them to obtain excellent results.
Joy and play are essential elements of successful learning at any age, and I make certain that students learn without a lot of undue stress and anxiety. Adult students can expect the same support and respect as the youngest child.
After 6 years of directing and teaching how to play an instrument, what I have learned is that it hasn't to be hard, music is fun as long as you like.

Musical Education

I have attended the following schools earning the following degrees:
- composition and harmonization of musical arrangements at Fine Arts CENADA, El Salvador.

Awards and Distinctions

As a marching band director, I won many first-place competitions in El Salvador:
- First place in Texistepeque, Santa Ana, 2014.
-First place in Atiquizaya, Sonzonate, 2014.
-First place in New Cuzcatlan, 2015.
-First place CISCO San Salvador, 2017.

Special Skills and Training

When I was a child, used to see the marching band at school and I always felt drawn to it. it dragged me to learn and study all instruments because I wanted to be like my first teacher, so I started with the trumpet, and after that, I learned many more instruments. In 2012 I took the decision to join a very famous marching band in my hometown, These experiences have enriched me both as a composer and teacher, since teaching music to actors is not so different from teaching it to children.

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).
