BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH JEREMY NOW
Music builds foundation for community. I believe music brings people together and inspires us to be ourselves. Music is a way of expressions and influences our everyday lives. Whether you're listen to music or you are a performer, music is engages everyone in many ways. From dancing with no care in the world, to singing your heart out at a concert, music is an important part of human connection. When teaching my students, I build a strong musical foundation with them which allows them to find their voice and express how they feel. I try to take a facilitator approach and act as a guide for my students to support them in reaching their own goals. Music should be a way of expressing yourself and how you connect with your communities.
Name: Jeremy (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I have a Bachelor's of Music degree from Wilfrid Laurier University and studied community music which included various solo and group performances. At the age of six, I studied piano privately and have RCM training. My teacher studied classical piano and finished a university degree in piano performance. She has received exceptional rewards and is the founder of the Philippine Choral Society of Mississauga (PCSM). I studied piano with her and became a part of the PCSM choir as a child. In addition, I studied at Cawthra Park Secondary school as a piano major in their arts program. Through this program I developed piano and music skills outside of the classical genre with other music styles such as jazz, broadway, pop, and hiphop. I was also a part of the chamber choir at Cawthra park and performed with various venues and musicians such as cirque de sole and the Rolling Stones.

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).
