“Music is an emotional expression reflected through sounds.”
BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH ALEX NOW
Greetings, Aleks from Ukraine! It's wonderful to connect with you. If you're looking to learn music and join a band, you've come to the right place. I am an active musician involved in multiple bands here in Canada. I offer lessons in both Ukrainian and English, according to the student's preference. My teaching approach covers the fundamentals of music while also preparing you to participate in a musical group. I'll teach you how to jam and improvise, essential skills for playing in a band. Additionally, I have experience in music recording and actively involve my students in the process of recording and creating music. I believe in approaching music education from multiple angles. My teaching method focuses on rhythm development and fostering communication between musicians on stage. With my guidance, you'll experience a deeper understanding of music beyond mere notes on paper. Music is an emotional expression reflected through sounds. You'll have the opportunity to explore various instruments such as the guitar (classical, acoustic, and electric), bass guitar, vocals, piano, and even delve into sound engineering. I offer a comprehensive course in recording music editing and video editing as well. I consider all my students as friends, and our friendship often spans many years. I look forward to meeting you and embarking on a musical journey together. Let's create beautiful music and have a great time playing together.

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).
