“From the sound of our breath to the beat of our hearts, rhythm and sound are fundamental components of every human being.”
 - Ajinde


I feel that music is essential to everyone's education and that it is a basic part of who I am. From the sound of our breath to the beat of our hearts, rhythm and sound are fundamental components of every human being. Learning music formally is merely a way to enhance these natural abilities. As with a great athlete, a musician's body need meticulous physical study and focus; all of my classes start with physical warm-ups to support the particular musculature needed in the development of each instrument.

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

Age: 30's

Gender: male

I am a graduate of university of Lagos Nigeria where I obtained a Bachelor and master degree in music Education . I have been playing the drum set from age 8 and I have lots of experience both as a performer and a teacher . I have worked both with children and adult in my over 10 years of teaching. I have developed a teaching method for drumming and understanding of rhythm in the most simple way making learning fun and interesting.

I grew up in the church playing music with other kids and I then was enrolled in a music school at age 11 where I learnt former music . My music talent has taking me round the world playing with well known Nigerian pop artist and gospel artist. These encounters have enhanced my abilities as a composer and educator, as instructing musical performance


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

Ajinde 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.
