Music is really important to express ourselves through songs that we enjoy, or why not? compose a new one. At the same time that we are playing music, we reduce stress and anxiety, while improving parts of our body and different skills like memory, motor skills, language, movement and others, without noticing. Through music we have better cultural experiences, also, we open the possibilities to explore our creativity and sensitivity. Having fun and enjoying music lessons is fundamental to having a successful journey through music. I invite you to join the wonderful world of music and enjoy the process effortlessly and joyfully.
Name: Jeison Manuel (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I have attended the following schools earning the following degrees: - National Pedagogical University of Colombia - Bachelor of arts in music - AEC Digital Marketing - TAV College. I have experience in early childhood education, musical initiation in children and adults. Furthermore, I have taught electric bass, Andean bandola, guitar, piano, drums, music theory, arrangements, composition, among others. The emphasis of my thesis consisted of musical composition. The emphasis of my career was conducting orchestra. My experience with music also include work as : • Session musician for bands, reading sheet music and playing recitals. • Live musician for artists. Other skills that I have learned are music production and audiovisual edition software, to bring online lessons with high quality to my students.
Studio album Session recordings
I have been playing in concerts and teaching music for more than 7 years. Those experiences makes me thing about the correct methodology of study for each student that has an unique interest. I have taken lessons with national and international teachers, learning a lot of methods that go to the same point, that is play music. I spent time with orchestras and large ensambles, was an experience that enriched my self as a music teacher and session musician. I have taught all ages since early childhood music education, to conservatory and bachelor students.
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).
