“I have been teaching music for 16 years, and I absolutely love seeing people come alive.”
BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH DANIEL NOW
Music is absolutely essential to my life as a person. I like to not only teach it, but to help students understand it carefully. I also desire to infuse examples of leadership and character building into my lessons (as they relate to music), so that my students can be great at music, and well-trained for life, whether they choose music as a career or not. This even includes discussing a vision for where they want to go with their music, setting goals, and discussing how I can accomplish that with them. I like to start right at the basics, and work my way up with a student, making sure that I do not just assume that they know something. I also help them to learn songs that they enjoy, so that they feel relaxed learning. Music education should be fun.
Name: Daniel (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I have taken one year of music from, but did not receive any degrees from Briercrest College & Seminary. This involved taking guitar, piano, and drum lessons, as well as recording arts, and two classes of music theory.
Music Spirit Award
My family was very musical, and I really wanted to learn the drums. At age 16, I finally received a divine opportunity to start playing. From there, worlds started to unfold for me, and I eventually learned many different instruments. I have now written 4 music books, composed 4 different albums (all of which are available on iTunes), and even done many seminars and band consultancy work. I have been teaching music for 16 years, and I absolutely love seeing people come alive.
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).
