“I encourage my students to think about their aspirations and what makes them want to pick up an instrument. I help them to achieve their goals.”
BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH JEFFREY NOW
Music is something that moves the air, it creates a change in the atmosphere. It helps every person in a very personal way. Whether one learns music because of fascination or the desire to play professionally or just because one would like to learn something new, music has something to offer each person from all walks of life irrespective of age or experience. I would always encourage my students to think about their aspirations and what makes them want to pick up an instrument and I would help them to achieve their goals. Children learn differently from adults. Each person learns differently from the next. I customize lessons based on each person. There is no 'one shoe fits all'. Music is an ocean and we are all students at one level or another. I am here to guide you in this journey you are about to take.
Name: Jeffrey (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I have completed Grade 8 Theory of Music from Trinity College London. I have a diploma in Music Technology from Muzik Lounge. The course is a mix of both Music production and Audio Engineering with the goal of producing a well rounded artists and music producers. I have been performing with various bands across genres and have been involved in the Indian Music Industry for many years playing the electric, acoustic and bass guitars for various compositions, songs and background scores. I consider this the greatest education I have received.
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).
Jeffrey 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.
