BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH DANIEL NOW
I find great joy in exploring the intricacies of music alongside my students, uncovering the distinctive nuances that give each piece its unique identity. As a classically trained guitarist with a flair for versatility, I bring a distinct perspective to popular and rock music. I foster an appreciation for all genres among my students, emphasizing that even rock draws inspiration from blues, classical, and jazz. Together, let's dissolve boundaries and discover where your unique sound leads you. Dare to be different and embrace the endless possibilities of music!
Name: Daniel (Full name will be provided upon registration)
Vancouver Community College - Music Performance Diploma
Playing the main stage for the winter olympics in February 2010. Having my guitar duo's debut c.d. "Small Talk" featured on C.B.C. Radio.
I am currently working on a book ~ I am rearranging classical piano music for solo or duo classical guitar. Some composers works that I have rearranged are Debussy, Ravel, and Satie, just to name a few. I am looking at possibly next year for publication.
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).
