One of the first questions that I like to ask my students is "Why do you think that people play music?". It helps me to understand their mentality for wanting to take lessons and play music, and I have received a variety of different answers over the years. It is important for me to know what a student wants to get from a lesson and that we have specific goals to work towards and also to keep our perspective on the bigger picture. Time is the only thing that we have to trade in this world, and I believe that the amount of time that anyone spends practicing and enjoying their instrument, the better they will become at playing it. In the words of one of my idols, Paul Gilbert, the secret to becoming a very good guitar player is to believe that playing guitar is the most fun thing to do in the world.

Name: Jeremy (Full name will be provided upon registration)

Age: 30's

Gender: male

I fell in love with guitar at an early age and began a journey to learn as much as I possibly could about the instrument along with songwriting, singing and recording. I took that knowledge with me to the Humber College Music program but opted to complete a BBA Arts & Science degree.

Master of the Shred 2019 - 2021

During the month of July, I work as a camp councillor for a Czech Summer Camp. With a staff of other councillors, we are responsible for taking care of children between the ages of 8 to 16. As a result, I have a lot of experience with teaching music to children. I have a lot of experience with extended range guitars and I am able to teach people how to play 7-string and 8-string guitars. I usually play extended range guitars in my musical projects, so I am able to give lessons on the following musical styles: Djent, Thall, Death Metal, Groove Metal, Deathcore, Metalcore, Progressive Metal, Mathcore, and Black Metal. Since I've been recording and releasing music from my home studio for many years, I can give you advice on how to achieve an effective home studio setup of your own! I would be happy to give you the rundown about what kind of equipment you'd need to get started, how to use it, and how to achieve high-quality recordings for the best price.

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).
