BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH ANTHONY NOW
I strongly believe that every student is unique, with different learning styles, goals, and musical interests. With this in mind, my approach is to initially focus on fundamental aspects during the initial lessons, such as stick handling, posture, wrist warm-ups, familiarizing students with the drum kit, and teaching them how to count, read, and write music. Simultaneously, I take the time to understand the student on a personal level, discovering their musical preferences, aspirations, and the specific songs they desire to learn. Based on this valuable insight, I create a tailored lesson plan that encompasses the essential foundations of drumming, while catering to their individual preferences and comprehension. By doing so, I aim to motivate and inspire my students to continue their lessons and practice diligently.
Name: anthony (Full name will be provided upon registration)
In 1998, I embarked on my drumming journey at a music school, where my first teacher imparted valuable knowledge. Eager to expand my skills, I pursued private lessons, delving into various styles including rock, pop, jazz, and Latin. Along the way, I also acquired the ability to teach myself. As my passion for drumming grew, I began sharing my expertise with fellow students at my high school in 2009. What started as a small endeavor quickly gained momentum, as more and more students became interested in learning from me.
As indicated in my profile, I have had the privilege of working in studios with numerous bands across a wide range of musical genres. This experience has granted me a deep appreciation and comprehensive understanding of various music styles, as well as proficiency in playing different percussion instruments. Consequently, I feel confident and at ease when teaching students about diverse musical genres and the intricacies of various percussion instruments.
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).
anthony 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.
