Age: 18

Gender: male

Since the age of 10, my journey in music has been a deeply enriching experience. I began my formal education at a distinguished teaching institute with over 30 years of professional expertise. Under their guidance, I achieved Grade 8 in Piano from Trinity College London, marking a significant milestone in my musical education. Simultaneously, I delved into the intricacies of music theory, completing Grade 5 Music Theory from Trinity as well. Throughout my musical journey, I actively participated in concerts and functions, showcasing my skills and passion for music. The stage became a canvas where I not only performed but also connected with diverse audiences, inspiring many to appreciate the beauty of music. My commitment to music extends beyond instrumental proficiency. I have a rich background in live performances and collaborations, fostering connections within the musical community. I am excited to bring this wealth of experience to my teaching, creating a dynamic and inspiring learning environment for my students. Join me as we explore the vast and beautiful world of music together

I got merit in almost all the examinations I appeared in until Grade 5. I did not appear for Grade 6 and Grade 7 piano exams due to Covid 19. However I have completed my Grade 8.

I find my inspiration in the echoes of my childhood, surrounded by the enchanting melodies of my teacher teaching piano. His profound influence spans over 30 years as a professional musician and a dedicated educator, shaping not just my musical upbringing but also my philosophy as a teacher. My musical journey unfolded within the nurturing confines of my home and tutoring center, where learning wasn't just a practice but a deeply ingrained part of life. This intimate setting has cultivated a unique approach to teaching that resonates on a profound and instinctive level within me. I've explored the realms of music through a different lens as a performing among large audience. These diverse experiences, from the classical strings to the avant-garde sounds of theatre, have enriched both my identity as a composer and my role as a teacher. The dynamic nature of teaching music to actors has revealed unexpected parallels with guiding children through the intricate world of music. Join me in this harmonious journey, where each lesson is a shared exploration, and the threads of music weave a tapestry that transcends generations and experiences. Let's uncover the joy of learning music together, drawing inspiration from the intimate stories that music has to tell."


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).
