“Joy, play and patience are essential elements of successful learning at any age.”

BOOK AN INTERVIEW WITH JOSE PEDRO NOW
Music is fundamental to all human beings, and I believe that it is integral to the education of any person. We all have rhythm and sound as a core part of our body, from the heartbeat to the sound of the breath, and formal training in music and rythym is only an expansion of what already exists in every human. Joy, play and patience are essential elements of succesful learning at any age, and I make certain that students learn without a lot of undue stress and anxiety. For Adults its the same support and respect as the youngest child. Also the most important is what you want to learn, and in that way we can try the best ways to get there. Welcome everybody!
Name: Jose Pedro (Full name will be provided upon registration)
I have attended the following schools: 2012-2017-UNIACC University of the Arts in Santiago de Chile - Bachelor of Music 2010-2012-Escuela Moderna de Musica in Santiago de Chile-2 years of Drum lessons My principal teachers included Sergio Tilo Gonzales, Rodrigo Galvez, Felix Lecaros and percussionists as Cristobal Rojas, Santiago Vazques and Mariano Cantero.
I play Drums since I was nine years old. In high school I spent years playing with different bands and performing in small concerts and festivals with great feedback from my teachers. Then I studied for two years Drums formally at Escuela Moderna de Musica . After that I spent almost 5 years studing Drums and a Bachelor of Music. At the same time I performed in several shows and festivals. I have been traveling to many places of Latinoamerica and the world making music and learning every single day.
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).
