“As students connect with and share music, their personal and social lives flourish.”
 - Cameron


Music is first and foremost in my life, as I firmly believe it enhances learning and problem-solving abilities, while also introducing students to the core relationships and qualities inherent in sound and nature. My primary goal is to demonstrate to students the joy of playing music, fostering the ability to harmonize with friends, all while guiding them in comprehending and embracing harmony and rhythm, in line with both classical and jazz music education. As students connect with and share music, their personal and social lives flourish. My teaching approach guarantees patience, support, enjoyment, and genuine care. I provide adaptable lesson plans catering to all ages and levels of experience, allowing each individual to learn at a pace that brings them joy.

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

Age: 25

Gender: male

I have studied Commercial Jazz and Music at Humber College for 3 years, Majoring on the Saxophone/Woodwinds. I have studied saxophone privately from age 13, focusing on areas of Tone Production, Technique, Equipment, the History of the Saxophone, Jazz Repertoire, Jazz Harmony, and Improvisation.

I have been performing at Venues in Hamilton since the age of 17 and consistently in bands with older, experienced and established musicians. I've had the pleasure of attending private lessons, master-classes, workshops, and ensembles led by some of the most established musicians in toronto including Larnell Lewis, Robbi Botos, Kirk McDonald, Alex Dean, etc. at Humber College.


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).
