I firmly believe that the pursuit of music holds immense value in one's personal journey towards self-discovery and fulfillment. Whether it's mastering a new instrument or diving into a fresh melody, the process demands commitment and discipline—qualities that are crucial for success in any endeavor, be it learning a language or embarking on an entrepreneurial venture. However, the beauty of music lies in its inherent joy and playfulness. It's called "playing" music for a reason! For young learners, music instills the vital lesson that focused dedication can help them reach their aspirations. And for more seasoned students, let's embark on an engaging and delightful learning adventure, where we can relish the tunes that have resonated with you for years. Together, let's discover the joy of music-making and embrace the challenges that will fuel our growth.

Name: Adrian (Full name will be provided upon registration)

Age: 28

Gender: male

My formal music education began at Vanier College. During this time, I primarily focused on jazz guitar. My studies then continued at Humber College in Toronto where I earned an honours BA in music. During my undergrad, I expanded my horizons and delved into other genres of music as well as other disciplines, such as composition and arranging. As a part and as a result of my education, I have played in some of the most prestigious venues in the country, including the Rex and the Opera House in Toronto and the TD stage at the Montreal JazzFest.

I received the Ted Quinlan Guitar Award at Humber College.

In addition to my experience working privately, I teach and have taught in classroom settings in elementary schools for years which has given me a unique set of skills when working with younger students.

Rates and Studio Policies
Registration Fee: $25.00 (One-time lifetime registration fee may be used by all family members)

Rates for instruction:
30 minute private lesson: $39.00
45 minute private lesson: $49.00
60 minute private lesson: $59.00

Travel charge: additional $15.00 per visit (for lessons in a client's home as opposed to my studio)

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).

Online lessons

Adrian can provide online instruction. While other platforms are possible BAH strongly recommends the use of the Zoom video conferencing platform as it is optimized for music lessons and audio quality.

Adrian's Studio Location

Adrian offers lessons from his studio. Please note that map locations are based on the postal code of the teachers studio. address will be released to you if needed.
